Down Broadway, High Street

Recommended Posts

Hi Tash,

 

I walked past the site of DB yesterday and the memories flooded back.

Was too young to go to the MOJO but looked forward all week to Sat nights at DB. I recall often standing outside chilled to the bone in winter waiting for

Stringfellow to open the place up.

 

I remember it was often the middle of the week before I could hear properly again.

 

great days

 

Chris

Hi, just read your post about Down Broadway,I first went there with a pal of mine 1969,We were not Towny,s at the time,and of course we were picked on by a gang of lads,fortunatley for me I found out i was good at scrapping and made my self a hero that night,thanks Dad !.Any way my mate was not and he ran off,and never went back,where as I loved it and must have attended there solidly for a year I guess.I had a new group of mates and became a Towny !I saw Several acts there my favourite was Arthur Conley.I remember Pete Stringfellow as he popped in from time to time,one of his main DJ,s at the time was Pat Sweetwater,anybody remember him ? cheers for now.

Did this place not evolve into Crazy Daisies in the mid 70's.

 

No The Crazy Daisy was farther up towards the Star offices. It later became the Geisha Bar and they did have a piano player.

Didn't the Crazy Daisy have a slightly different spelling than what I just wrote, like a Z in the Daisy bit ?

Down Broadway was in the basement of a shoe shop a few doors to the right of the entrance to the Old Blue Bell. There were two shoe shops near to each other, Manfield and Stylo, not sure which one it was. Puzzled me at the time how a functioning shoe shop had a basement to spare.

You are right about the Z, it was Daizies, I originally spelt it that way but my spell checker corrected me, and I let it. :roll:

Worked as a DJ at Silver Blades. Went for an Audition with Stringy at Down Broadway was impressed as him as a DJ but security was shambolic. Fighting broke out in the toilets then moves to the dance floor and the mirrors at the back were covered in blood. They were then ejected to which the club emptied so they could get a better view from the upper decks of the buses parked in the High Street. Did not get the job wasn't interested.
