Hi, don’t if you have heard of this Brum Band; The Sombreros. If memory serves me right I think they played a lot around the Kings heath, Selly Oak and Northfield pubs back in the best times (The Sixties’) Here is a mention of them I found while browsing the web.
A very popular group in the local area throughout much of the 60s. They originated from Birmingham in 1963 as the Sombreros but changed the name in 1964 to Sight & Sound. They recorded on Fontana (Alley Alley/Little Jack Monday) and included some outstanding players in their ranks at various times including Geoff Turton and Mike Sheridan. In 1969 the group had Joe Valentine, Dave Pritchard, Pete Smith and Bob Doyle (later members included Nev Chamberlain (ex-Peasants) and John Davies). They started playing on the P&O cruise liners and were managed by Mike Carroll.
