That brings back a memory. There used to be a ballroom in Stockport that advertised itself as having the biggest triple sprung maple floor in the north of England. Maple was also used in spinning mill floors and was one of the first things to be recycled when a mill was demolished. The boards were so tightly fitted that when water got into the mill the floors used to expand and rise up in waves.

I remember it being said that the Dave Clark Five hadn't to play "Bits and Pieces" as people stamped on the floor and that would not do it any good------or was that down the Burnley Mecca?


I'd be dangerous with a brain!!!!!

I have been referred to a book by Steve Chappells entitled "Imperial Ballroom Nelson, the ballroom of the stars 1956-1970".  I believe this is currently out of print, but I managed to find a copy in Burnley Reference Library.
The book has details of all the artists appearing  with dates etc... Just what I was looking for !!!!

Sony, I would be interested to see the listings you have.
Do they include local groups?
Would you be prepared to email the lists to me?

It's just a coinidence then, that a chap from Lancashire came up to me at the end of the gig and asked me where I was from....When I said "Nelson originally", we got into conversation , and he began telling me about playing in bands in the 60's , and that he'd played a lot at The Imp....

His Band was called the Beatovens and apparently they still get together sometimes....

We had quite a long conversation about The  Imp and I told him that a cousin of my Dad's used to part-own it  (his name was Roland Cort....of Cort's furniture shops)

When I told Mum about it the next day , she said she was under the impression that "Uncle Roland " actually owned it outright....I'm not sure , but now I have Steve Chappel's Email , I could check with him !

Having seen your site , I'm also prompted to ask if any of your members have come across a bloke called Alan Holt ....He used to live on Every Street in Nelson , and taught me my first few chords on the guitar...(about  1958/9)

Be in touch...eh!

All The Best

Bradders

All,
Thanks for resurrecting this forum and thanks for all your info.
Some good info on Lankybeat site ---- Glad to see my name in lights (well a few lumens of candle power anyway !!!)

After a bit more info .....
Anybody have a date when Geno Washington & the Ram Jam Band played at Burnley Miners (late 1960s)?
And when Alan Price (blues combo?), or Roy Harper appeared on stage at Burnley Mechaninics (1990s)?

Cheers
Daveiw

Bit of an argument going on here 'cause hubby says we saw him at Colne Muni. He could be right....but I'm not convinced.
