Late 70s Kids!

The Lockett Brothers' first musical venture: "The Hot Club Of Neasden" a Dixieland outfit, active on the Isle Of Wight in the 1970s. Left to right: Dorian Lockett: cello; Phil Collins: E flat bass euphonium; Steve Martch: trombone; Neil McPherson: alto saxophone; Gerard Trevett: trumpet; Mornington Lockett: clarinet; Martin "Chirpy" Lewis: trombone; Dave "Buddy" Chivers: drums; Gary Lee: banjo; Andy Rayner: piano; "Richie" Richardson: double bass. We think this was about 1977. Photo taken to celebrate Richie's retirement as school head caretaker. A classic, never-to-be-repeated lineup!


  1. Actually, we now think it was 1979. Gerard Lancaster on trumpet, sorry. Gerard Trevett was my clarinet teacher at Dartington.

  2. Crikey.. that's a blast from the past.. yes it was 1979, I was in lower 6th form (along with yourself and Chirpy Lewis)
