My name is Norman Moore and I was the lead singer with the band. We were a semi-pro White Soul Band.
Our greatest achievement which has been a secret since it happened was on Saturday 13th May 1967 we supported The Jimi Hendrix Experience on the same stage at Imperial College, South Kensington, London, SW7 2AZ.
The gig originally scheduled for a group called 1984, who's lead guitarist was a young Brian May.
We got the prime spot by default as we were the first band to arrive.
I am now 74 and suffering from Parkinson's Disease.
I am trying to put together a History of the band together from Start to Finish but my memory is not as good as it use to be.
Band Members I can recall are:

   Brian McCarthy - Lead Guitarist - I am still in contact with him
   Fred Field - Original Drummer
   Roy Wallis - Rhythm Guitar - Switched to Baritone Sax - Sadly Deceased
   Geoff Nash - Bass
   Paul Gittings - Multi-Instrumentalist
   Geoff Castle - Principle Keyboard Player with LYJO
   Barry Raven - Keyboard - Formally - Vandals Blues
   Geoff Hammond - Drums

Any input would be gratefully received.
Best regards,

Norman MOORE
