I was guitarist in the Eddie Robinson Band and we did alternate gigs at Wigan Casino and Bolton Casino. We played covers of the latest music but it tended to have quite a bit of brass input which of course gave a 'soul feel' to it all. I remember Eddie's wife singing the hit song Bluebird so it would be about the time that song hit the Charts. My pal was a bouncer at Bolton who lost his job first night due to not stopping a fight. At Wigan Casino I used to run my van up the side alley and dump gear and leave the van there, only going out to it in the interval with a girl. Mad times.
