Although from Sheffield, O'Hara's Playboys were regular visitors on the Manchester club scene and featured Dave Bowker, a Manchester musician who played with many of Manchester's finest groups.


The group disbanded when John went solo in the 80's, retired in 2006 ish. From the 1965-1970 Sheffield line up, Bobby Campbell. Davy McHarg managers Tony French and Brian Hart and Pete Campbell all passed away. Only me, John, Peter Green and Billy Simpson left.
