    When I first started going in our club you had to queue outside on New Years Eve to get the best seats in the concert room.

    Several generations of families would be out and the older end always had food, as you rightly say. It was a long night.

    the lead singer could hit the high note when he sang " Sugar Baby love " better than the lead singer of The Rubettes who recorded it

    The Gents were seemingly a semi permanent fixture at Roof Top Gardens in Wakefield in the mid 80s. Must have seen them more than a dozen times. Happy days.
