Comment by George Osborne on 4th March 2014 at 21:45
The bloke on the left is indeed Chris Docherty (the ex (bankrupt) keeper of the Royal Oak)


Comment by tuddy on 4th March 2014 at 22:58
That banjo player looks temperamental, 50% temper, and 50% mental!!!


Comment by Bill on 5th March 2014 at 11:19
Nice pic, Bri. The band was given its name by Wilf Rhoden of the former Stage Door Bar, who, after listening to them practice and argue , practice and argue for 6 months in his upstairs rooms , kindly awarded them its inaugural gig. 'What are you called?' he asked Billy. 'Oh just put 'Band Tonite'.
On arrival for the big night ''Billy and The Tempramentals' was chalked on his A-board in the street, outside the bar. A memorable night it was, too. The Great Britain Rugby League squad turned up drowning their sorrows after another Test series defeat by Australia where a mild mass brawl ensued during the performance, Blues Bros-style! The name stuck and so did the band, its been a while, maybe ten years.

I was at the beer festival that night. Now I know I had sunk a few pints but I'm sure there were six of them! But I can only see five on here!


Comment by Bill on 5th March 2014 at 13:39
You're right of course Dennis P. Massif Ian Thornley with his banjo is obliterating the drummer, Stu Faz and the fellow in black, eponymous Bill Green doing the same to the sax and lead guitar Richie Thompson; rest of line Up: funny hats and guitar, Chris Docherty; bass Johnnie twelve-bands Lewis.

A friend of mine had a 60th birthday party in club number 5, Cavendish square, off Oxford Street in London. He hired these guys along with another musician, Jon Brindley. All the drinks were paid for. After what they drank that night they should rename themselves Peroni!! I enjoyed them though.

This group have helped raise money for a lot of good causes in the past especially macmillman nurses its a pity they do not play more often together as a group as they are a lovely bunch of lads.

I do wish some people would check their facts (George Osbourne). You can easily check the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Register: http://www.insolvencydirect.bis.gov.uk/eiir/IIRSearchNames.asp?court=ALL&CourtName=ALL&Office=&OfficeName=&page=1&surnamesearch=DOCHERTY&forenamesearch=ALLFORENAMES&OPTION=NAME&tradingnamesearch=
