See David Rose, Mick Douglas and John Kelly give their illustrated talk with live music – Guildford the Rock ‘n’ Roll Years – at Shere Village Hall on Saturday, June 17, raising funds for the charity Hope for Justice.

The show promises to be an evening of nostalgia with a trip down memory lane focusing on Guildford bands, beginning with those playing skiffle at the end of the 1950s, soon turning to rock ‘n’ roll in the early 1960s and what became of them, plus some of the music of the early 1970s.

Both Mick and John were there at the start, later going to Hamburg in West Germany to hone their talents as professional musicians.

They will add amazing details of their musical careers, while others bands featured will include the Stormsville Shakers, the Kossacks, Ricky and the Secrets, the Switch and many more.

The venues they played at will also be featured such as the Ricky Tick Club at the Plaza in Onslow Street, the Harvest Moon Club, the Stoke Hotel and the Civic Hall.

After a quick break, the trio will pick up their guitars and play out the evening with some great songs from the era in question.

John Kelly, David Rose and Mick Douglas end their set at one of their previous Guildford the Rock ‘n’ Roll Years shows.
