My band The Zephyrs appeared at The Playhouse Theatre in Manchester on two occasions in 1961 and 1962. On the same bill were Pete McLane and the Dakotas before Billy J Kramer joined the same band.
I remember Peter Pilbeam well and also The Trad Lads (part of the NDO).and on another show I think it was another Mersey Band on the same bill.
I think the Zephyrs played at Oldham's football ground before a match. They where great - the foot ball was poor. I also recollect the Zephyrs in a film with Steve Marriot about a music contest .I hope I am not getting mixed up with the Zodiacs.
