Bands of the sixties in Sheffield

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, Dave doesn't play any more. That is his choice, which we must respect. He is alive and well, though. :-)

I remember going to the Saturday morning flicks at the Gaumont cinema in Barkers Pool in the early 60's and there was always a local band on first. Can't recall any of the names, but may well have been some of the ones mentioned. And in case you're wondering how a band played at the cinema, the Gaumont had a stage as well as a screen.

 

Someone mentioned Bitter Suite - 3 of them still play together under the name Phil Brodie Band. They are fantastic players - if you like Hendrix, Gary Moore, Stevie Ray Vaughan etc go and see them, you won't be disappointed.

 

Keep on rocking! 8)

Hi there, I can give you a bit of a lead re: Dene Marshall from Dene Marshall & the Deputy's. Dene was actually Barry Marshall who went on to play with the LIZARDS & also ended up with the SQUARE CIRCLES I think.

Guys who played with them were Gerry Scanlan, Billy Durrant Phil Squires & there was also Alan Dale as singer of the Squiare Circles.

These two bands were very popular in the late 60's early 70's & good bands too. Would love to hear any news of any of them if anyone has any.

I know this is an old thread but hope some of you will pick up on it.

I have just heard that a book is being published about the MOJO days.

Launch party at the Boardwalk (old Black Swan) on 17 July.

Everyone welcome.

 

These were great days although very few local bands played there.

Most memorable for me were Hendrix, Small Faces, The Move and Procul Harem.

Anybody elses thoughts

I think I spent just about all my waking hours at the Mojo club as a 16 year old & would dearly love to be at that book launch, however its a bit difficult from Australia. I remember Rod Stewart

Chris Farlow, Spencer Davies John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers

small faces the who & probably if it wasnt 10pm at night here after a hard day at work I would think of many more. Would love someone to keep me posted on the book launch though. I think the Mojo was about the best thing that happened to Sheffield teenagers back then.

The Mojo was considered about the best club in Britain between '64 and '67.

 

Very. very mod.

Don't remember the Supremes appearing but it is possible.
