Last week we brought you the revelation that Sleaford’s Mabern Club played host to budding pop star Andy Summers, later guitarist with top eighties group The Police.

At the time in the photo in 1967 he was playing with moderately successful group Zoot Money and the Big Roll Band.

Here we have a photo found in our archives of their single released a couple of weeks later in April after their live appearance in Sleaford. Spot Andy Summers among this lot?

Zoot Money and the Big Roll Band had a hit with Big Time Operator, before changing their name to Dantalian’s Chariot.

According to Mike Barnes of Sleaford, Rod Stewart played at the Mabern Club around this time as well. Was anyone there?
