Many a good singer and musician started with Dave Glover and that was Wednesday night at the Astor.  I went one week and by the next the whole band with the exception of about two had left him .  I was one of the fittest people around.  I trained about 4 times a week and dance a couple of time a week. ;)

I was at the Astor from about 1960 but stopped going in about 1965.  I was 22 yrs at the time and thought that the crowd had become a bit young :( or maybe I was more in line for Maxims at the time. .and more sophiscated.   :swoon: :swoon:

Hi Our Bobby - You are right - Tony Morrelli and I believe the band was the Northern Comets?

I loved the Astor, Romanos and the Orpheus.
I met my ex husband on New Years Eve in the Astor.
We would go to as many dances in a seven day week as was possible.
I think Maxims had the nurses dance on Thursdays.
We didn't like it so much as the boys were much older than us!! lol
That didn't stop us from going though.

Do you all realise that a lot of us  have probably danced beside each other if not ACTUALLY with each other.??
Oh boy!!!! :D

Oh IC, I am sure Albert is somewhere deep in my subconscious. lol :D
My ex was a brilliant dancer as well.
That is the only regret I have where he is concerned.
When we danced it was as if we were tuned into each other like Siamese twins. :D
It was incredible!!
OMG, I am laughing so much here!! :D
It's the truth though!!!
\
Just had a funny thought.
There was a HUCKLEBUCK Contest on at the Orpheus and we came in for the final round!!
I was on night duty,the night of the final and wow of woes , will never know if we could have won it!!! :D
 Who remembers Brendan Boyer and the Hucklebuck????????
