Over the generations, the Manchester area has nurtured thousands of musical acts, ranging in styles as diverse as music hall and Madchester.

But it was the sixties that was the first to bring the music to the people.  There were groups in almost every street, kids playing their music without thought of fame - just fun.

Although many were adopted on a national scale, others were content to stir only local interest before their eventual demise.

Despite their lack of national commercial success, they were part of the tremendous Manchester area music scene that continues to play such a major part in our lives.

Proudly based in the sixties, these pages salute the groups, agents, disc jockeys, shops and clubs in the Manchester area that gave us all such a great time! Memories that have lasted a lifetime!

Are you a GEAR HEAD?

Interested in the history of gear?  Course you are!

I played sax and was a singist, so know little of ampliferters and such things - but you may be a musician, so why not visit the Museum of Rock.

Online at  www.chvintageaudio.com   or a leisurely 18 miles job, south of Manchester - private viewings are available.

More info on the site - thanks for your info Chris
