brushes with fame
In our early days we used to rehearse using the facilities at the same school as Brian Poole & The Tremeloes. In 1966 we were the supporting act for a dance starring Tony Rivers & The Castaways, who went on to become Harmony Grass.
where are they now
The final 60's line-up got back together in 2007 and are once again entertaining people at dances, birthday parties etc. - and the audiences aren't entirely made up with people of our age! The original bass player, Bill Plaskett, went off to Nova Scotia and, although we haven't met up with him for a couple of years we understand he is still playing musical instruments, providing backing for his son who is a professional musician. Roger Wholey, our original drummer, joined the RAF and was still serving as recently as 2008. We also understand he took up playing the guitar - possibly too many percussionists in the services!
