Hi Although we were a group from the Cannock Area we were around Brum doing the Regan Circuit like many of the groups on your list.
I felt it important enough to be in touch as we were part of that 60s music scene and as I was born and bred in Brum (Winson Green ) I always think of us as a midland group.
We were featured and mentioned in Midland Beat on many occasions.
I have many pictures – dates & cuttings I can supply you with – so here is a run down of the group:
Lead guitar – Terry Heath
Bass guitar – Dave Jones
Organist – George Davis
Drums – Myself – Colin Corbett
Singer – Ian Lees
As you can see Ian ‘ Sludge ‘ Lees went on to sing with the Montanas and Light Fantastic and is still performing as a comedian.
We had a business man Gerry Southgate as our Manager who put lots of money into the band – we had a new Commer van – A professional musical director – recorded at Hollick & Taylor and a Photo session by Dezo Hoffeman, The Beatles Photographer.
I have 12 copies of Midland Beat from those couple of years and I have had then Copied & Enlarged to A3 size and have laminated the copies which I intend to leave to the Birmingham library.
Will send a couple of pictures but can send more if they’re wanted.
Great days & memories.
I’m now semi retired and since 1976 have been a Professional Dance Teacher with my Wife .
Hope you find this useful
