Photos of Tony Burt in Action Across the Decades
Black and white images of Pig’n’Wissul in 1969 at Bournville Village Hall in Birmingham. This was my first band and included Ray Hadden, Phil Knowles, Paul Capper and Dave Mojic. 40-odd years on Phil and Paul are still among my closest friends (Paul is my cousin) and I still see Ray Hadden and keep in touch via FB. Dave Mojic unfortunately has disappeared. The event was a fundraiser for the Bournville Venture Scouts and the Scoutmaster/MC Brian Williams is still a friend too.
Jubilee Day 1977
Couple of shots of Trilogy performing at a street party in Kings Norton on Jubilee Day in 1977. I think the audience were expecting the Hokey Cokey and Viva Espana so not one of our more successful concerts. The expressions in the first photo are a bit of a give-away!
Witches Brew Rehearsal 1982
Witches Brew followed on from Trilogy and ran from 1982 through to the early 90s. It comprised Tony & Maryse Burt together with John Davis and John Sullivan. Having recently listened to some old tapes I reckon we were pretty good!
