The group backs The Vibrations at Toft's in Folkestone, Kent. Former Loving Kind guitarist Noel Redding joins the musicians backstage after the show. Little does he know but his future band leader Jimi Hendrix is flying out from the USA tonight on route for London.
If anyone has anything to share on old gigs in Folkestone, please get in touch.
UPDATE: I only really meant for this to appear on Folkestone Gerald but I made a change to my blog recently so it posts new stories I write there, or on my family tree page, up here. I'm sure it won't actually bother anyone...
This is my website The FG that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for best venues and stuff, and I know it was a useful reference for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. My name is not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a fake newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
