Local Legends

artist list below


Since the late fifties there have been hundreds if not thousands of performers that started their musical careers by performing in the pubs, clubs, and theatres across the UK.

Sadly just a tiny few of those went on to become big international stars.

So what happened to the rest?
Well naturally many groups broke-up; some because life got in the way, and they could no longer afford to live their dreams. And others; because key members left to join other existing bands, or to form new bands, and some of these bands then went on to become famous.

But what happened to those that stayed together, and didn't become famous?
Well, thankfully they continued to excite audience with their unique talent for many years to come, performing night after night in the thriving pubs and clubs around their home towns.

So this area of the website is where we can remember those talented and committed founding fathers of the UK pop scene.
