  1. Jeremy, thanks for the superb article on the blue plaque unveiling, particularly since it’s so well-researched. I’ve added a link to it on my music site and shared it on the Hampshire and Dorset Musicians Past and Present page on Facebook. I hope that’s ok with you. Cheers, Al Kirtley

    1. Hi Al,
      Thanks for the kind words. So pleased you like the piece. I enjoyed writing it and I’m only too happy for you to share with anyone who might be interested. Having only arrived in Bournemouth 28 years ago I missed the days of the Downstairs Club and Le Disque A Go! Go! but understand totally what a special place it must have been in its heyday. My own memories of those days are of the almost identical scene on the south east coast in my hometown of Folkestone where Tofts Club fulfilled precisely the same function as The Downstairs Club in Bournemouth. Where acts like John Mayall, Graham Bond, Alexis Korner, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, Geno Washington and even (as a special favour to club owner Harold Toft) Derek and the Dominoes would satisfying our need for ‘real’ music. I’m sure Zoot must have played there too, though I can only recall seeing him at the larger corporation run venue the Leas Cliff Hall. Happy days!
