YOUR VIEW:Searching for musical tales

Have your say

I have an idea for writing a nostalgic book that concerns dance bands and groups and venues from the mid 1950s through to the early 1970s.

I’m looking for musicians and vocalists who performed during those years who have anecdotes, stories, tales and, of course photographs. And also to include long-forgotten venues – the palais de dance, the ballroom, working men’s clubs and institutes, public houses and the holiday camps.

Were you a musician during those years? Did you go on to success and stardom, or maybe not? Did you play alongside or support bands, groups or singers that did succeed? The stories and possibilities are limitless with surely an endless supply of humorous, emotional, farcical or even tragic accounts from these times when musicians, singers and local lads and lasses were out on the town ‘letting their hair down’.
