Having a good time!
The Zephyrs at the Club Fiesta, in Norton. Barrie Miller says "We had the great pleasure of appearing with Dusty Springfield and this photograph was displayed outside the entrance." It shows Allan Coverdale rhythm guitarist, Denny Coleman on drums, Tommy Harbron lead guitar and Barrie Miller on bass. Rett Allen had left the band and was replaced by Tony Martin, who is still on the circuit today.
The two photographs directly above were taken at the Oxford Galleries Newcastle. The top one shows the band with TV presenter Tom Coyne. They are all in a happy mood as they had just won the north east final of the All England Walls Ice Cream sponsored Beat Group competition - beating the local red hot favourites band The 16 Strings from Whitley Bay.
Christmas in Whitley Bay - the lads having a good time with long standing friend George Robinson.
A very early photograph of The Zephyrs at Richardsons and Westgarth Club in Hartlepool. Back then the band had to carry their gear and use buses!
The Zephrons with Alan Coverdale, Barrie Miller and Tommy Harbron at the back with Dennis Coleman and Tony Martin in the front. The band were forced to change their name to The Zephrons because of broadcasting and contract problems. There was another band called The Zephyrs who were also recording at the time. Tony Martin, formerly of The Blue Caps, replaced Rett Allen in 1969-70 and this photograph was once featured outside the Club Fiesta, in Norton, when the band appeared there.

How nice to see this webpage and The Zephyrs mentioned in Paul Delplanque's "Remember When" column in the Evening Gazette on March 30th, 2009.
