This photograph of the Teesside group, The Denmen was taken by Bernard Fernley round about 1966. It shows, left to right in the back row, guitarist and vocalist Alan Ludley (who sadly died in a car crash in the mid 1960’s) drummer Merv Jones, bassist Peter “Tubby” Ayton, and tenor saxophonist George Trigg. In the front row is keyboard player Peter Jackson with Paul Rhucroft on baritone sax. Paul sadly died of cancer a few years ago. Peter “Tubby” Ayton still lives in Norton and for many years was part of the resident band at the Club Fiesta.
