THE HRW-LANKY BEAT SHOW

SERIES 3.. in February

 

MEANWHILE..

HERE'S ANOTHER SHOW..

 

*

 

Margo Thompson (Ellis) and Jennifer Green (Gorton) were so-called 60s Go-Go cage dancers at The Las Vegas Club and elsewhere in Wigan - the first in the north-west  - allegedly! They join Lanky Beat's Bill Hart and share a fun-filled, colourful, glamorous and distinctly feminine insight into some of their musical romps of the past...

LEE CURTIS

..and other Merseybeat Legends..

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee_Curtis

 

At an Xmas party bash I met up with Merseyside legend and vocalist Lee Curtis who fronted The All Stars in Hamburg and Liverpool in the early sixtes beat boom days of 50 years ago. Lee was on top form and looking forward to jamming it up with more invited guests of such Merseybeat fame as Ken Shalliker of The Dominoes, Dave Ferguson of The Cryin' Shames, Keith Dodd of The Topspots, Billy Churchill and Billy Good of The All Stars.

 

 

Lee, Ken, Billy, Dave play an impromptu warm-up acoustic set, much to the delight of the party goers.

 

 

Ken heads-up a ukulele sing-song with 'I'm Leaning on a Lampost' (Honest!)

made famous by another northern UK legend.. Wigan's one and only George Formby.

 

Billy Churchill leads off with Lee singing a great version of 'Ecstasy'.

 

Many thanks for an unforgettable night in Formby, 'Lancashire' (had to get that plug in!).

 A special thanks to mine-host Ken Shalliker and the fab buffet provided by Maja, Sandra and hostess Sheila.

MERSEYBEAT HERO OF TODAY..

 

My Mersey Beat Hero of Today is: Bill Hart, who launched his concept of the Mersey Sound Wave some years ago. www.merseysoundwave.com This was to gather a vast collection of legendary guitars for display in Liverpool. He then created Lanky Beat, a project to promote and conserve the history of groups from Lancashire. This developed into a website, books, then Lankykats www.lankykats.com - regular gigs for many of the groups concerned – and Lanky Beat now has its own radio show. I was pleased to be able to write a special piece about Bill for his Lanky Beat publications. His personal website is www.newliine.com
