Eel Pie Sect 19/10/17


Very much part of the London Rhythm and Blues scene in the 1960's, The Downliners started out in Twickenham on Eel Pie Island and subsequently took over The Rolling Stones' residency at Ken Colyers Club in London's West End. Tonight, The Downliners Sect (Video Of The Day) return to The Eel Pie Club, The Patch, 67 London Road, Twickenham TW1 3SZ, a band that still attracts crowds of thousands in Japan, Spain and Sweden where their song, 'Little Egypt', reached Number One in the Hit Parade. Today, The Downliners Sect are original members, Don Craine (vocals/guitar) and Keith Grant (vocals/bass) plus Del Dwyer (vocals/guitar), John O'Leary (vocals/harmonica) and Mark Freeman (drums). Doors open at 8.30pm with music from 9-11pm. WRC members are reminded that they can use their cards to get discounted admission.
