Find memories of Formby Hall - supporting The Equals, Sounds Incorporated, Johnny Johnson and The Bandwagon and playing there in our own right. Also being a judge in Miss Atherton 1968 (or 69).
Lots of gigs in Atherton area. Great times.
Phoenix City Smash
I grew up about hundred yards away. In the 1960’s my mate and I climbed up a drainpipe to get a glimpse of the Kinks and the Four Pennies. Later I watched the groups Paul mentions. Also Desmond Dekker and the Aces appeared, all arranged by Jimmy Bunting who ran a church youth club.
The 70‘s duo. Medicine Head also performed.
Jimmy arranged a Motown night with a band a few years ago. It was a sell-out and a nostalgic reminder of a great era.
