Hello newbie on here so apologies if this info can be found somewhere else on the forum.

I am researching the live appearances of a Black Country group that existed 1963-64.
They were called "Johnny Travelle and theVendors" and they also went out as "The Vendors".
In 1963 they won a Beat contest and the prize was to appear on the same bill as The Hollies at Willenhall Baths..I have spoken to the drummer of The Vendors and he thinks the gig happened in the latter half of 1963 but he's not sure.

I am going to look through the Wolverhampton newspaper archives to see if the gig was advertised but to save time does antone on here have any record of the concert taking place.

Cheers.

A '60s gig list was printed in the tour program circa 2001/2 and I just took a look through it. There is a listing for a show in Willenhall on December 19, 1963, but the venue name isn't given, nor are any other bands listed.

Other mid-'60s listings for that region if you're curious:

April 29, 1964: Wolverhampton Gaumont
February 8, 1965: Willenhall, but no venue listed.
July 16, 1965: Wolverhampton Civic Hall
December 16, 1965: Willenhall, but no venue listed.

Brilliant.
Thanks a lot I can go through the December newspapers .If/when I find the advert I'll put it on here.
The Willenhall gigs would be at the Baths.

This is the 1965 gig-
