The Sovereigns played at many venues in and around the Manchester area. For some time also we had a female singer, Pat Casey.
Above: front, Pat Casey, left to right - Colin Priest (bass), Arthur Brook (lead), Martin Duffy ( drums)
and Brian Hunt (rhythm).
The above photo shows the group performing at 'The Wishing Well' Swinton. Don't know where Pat was!
As regards the members' subsequent lives, I believe Pat & Colin married and I heard may have emigrated to South Africa in the seventies, however I don't really know and indeed they may be living in UK for all I know.
Arthur Brook subsequently went solo and had a successful club career under the name Mike D'Corcey, playing largely Shadows instrumental material.
I know Martin continued playing drums for many years in various groups and showbands.
As regards me, I went 'legit' in 1970 and joined the police (not the group!) and am now retired living the ex-pat life on the Costa Blanca, Spain.
About 3 or 4 years back I was perusing the local ex-pat newspaper when I saw a feature and photo of a solo guitarist called 'Silhouette' who was apparently now playing in and around the Benidorm area. That's Arthur I thought!
Anyway, I found a venue where he was appearing in Bendorm and just before he was due on stage, I presented myself in front of him! I'm sure you can imagine his reaction.
Sadly, but perhaps inevitably, I have lost touch with them all.
