Title: The Just William Band
Post by: Mickey on December 07, 2010, 03:42:22 PM
Hi Everyone,
My names Mike and I used to be the guitarist and singer with the Just William Band.
We had a residency at the Tavern in the 70s.

Also in the band was Sharon, Shannie,Tom Gray, Ken O'halloran.

Does anyone remember, the great times we had there in the 70s.

Shannie and Sharon were Pats daughters.
We also played the old tigers head,and a few pubs in the Old Kent Road.

Great Days!!!!

Mike

Sorry left UK in 1968, so my Taven and Tigers head days had long gone, 64 on till 68 I lived in Catford, Married with 2 Kids so was not into going out much. some of the younger lot might remember. I think Acker Bilk was my old Tigers Head back in the late 50s early 60s Regards Frank

I'm afraid I wasn't much of a pub person.  I doubt I went to the Downham Tavern more than twice in my life.  Nice to hear your memories even so, Mike.

Great to hear from you guys .  I am sure we did a few gigs at the Northover as well.

By the way I went to The Good Shepherd  and then on to Bonus Pastor.

I now Live in Spain, after what seems a lifetime of touring as a session guitarist
