"The band played mainly at The Beehive, Lostock which used to have two bands on at the same time in different rooms. Also played Wigan venues like Goose Green LC, The Pier and The Pink Elephant in Aspull. Later, John Wilcocks replaced Mike Hurst as Singer. The group ended their playing days at The Railway, Ramsbottom.
John Moulton moved on to play in various bands including Wigan Emp, whilst Mike Hurst went on to be lead singer with The Trekkers. Keith Walmesley is still playing and also produces paintings-sketches, etc. Terry Burns is not playing currently and Neil Smith went on to play Wigan Emp and Pier, Bolton Palais, Nevada and Manchester Ritz. I turned Professional in 1968 and has played worldwide, discs/tv/radio in the UK and abroad. I have written an online book called Have Guitar, Will Travel. www.guitaristuk.com
