The Roxy around the corner from Whitty's .. a huge old building painted red .. I only went there once.
'Excellent site for info, most informative Lynn ~ good work...now nobody mentioned The Roxy in Taylor Square run by Tim Martin .. spawning ground for some great musicians including the Emanuel brothers .. it was where I met Earlwood Greg who was a regular performer there in the mid seventies. Others may have detailed memories of the venue and artists. just as an aside... I remember gigging with the Neasdens at Buster Browns down from Taylor square on Oxford street.. the waiters were on roller skates and we were supporting Madam Lash.. indeed strange bedfellows...and we were told it was a family show! Glad you caught up with Chris Blanchflower. We had a lot of fun when we played in Richard Brooks Puffin' Billies harmonica band. Incidentally he was the harmonica player in Greg Quill's Country Radio, a band that had a couple of good selling albums in the early seventies.I have attached a shot taken at my fortieth ( Forty years in OZ) and showing a group of great mates that have been playing together for over thirty years...
