  • I was playing trumpet with The Derek Bruce Showband on this performance. I remember it very well.

    I think The Derek Bruce Showband were the resident band at the time and played every Saturday night and at private functions. I remember many hunt balls which were very raucous affairs. We had to compete for sound against the ‘hunting horns’!!

    Billy J Kramer and The Dakotas had just had hits with ‘Bad To Me‘ and ‘Do You Want To Know A Secret‘. The girls were going crazy at the front, and screaming their heads off.

    I remember Mr Briggs as being the ballroom manager at the time.
