About this memory

1966 – This list is an illustration of the various venues we were playing in Edinburgh and its surrounding areas. The list also includes the date 23rd June that we took part in the subsequent Beat Competition at The Kinema Ballroom in Dunfermline. The 1966 event was equal in its challenge to the 1965 event due to the array of quality bands on show. We were very pleased to come out out winners again making it 2 years in a row.
