We joined the LE Agency run by William Leyland and went on to play at many far flung places in the north west of England, Whitehaven and Workington.. Amongst the other better know places were Dalbeattie Town Hall, The Cat's Whiskers in Burnley, The Riverside Club and The Bodega Bar in Wigan.
On one occasion we played a treble. Finishing at The Wigan Beachcomber beneath Wigan Casino went went upstairs to play there. Then off to Mr M's which was the Casino's Night Club Lounge. Wow - what a night that was! In our time during the 70s, we supported bands like Mud, Sweet and Lindisfarne.
At the Cat's Whiskers we had a great night with comedian and impressionist Mike Yarwood as top of the bill. He accidently set the club on fire and I was the one who put it out! A really funny man. We went on later to share a bottle of whiskey between us."
