  • Helo everyone.

    The Beat Scene club was put together by my Dad and Mum. Norman and Chris Sheffield.

    Dad went to school with Cliff. Was in a local band called the Hunters who had a couple of hits. Then in 1968 created Trident Studios. The Worlds first 8 Track Studio where the Beatles recorded Hey Jude and Bowie became Ziggy. In 1972 he discovered and signed Queen.

    I was born in Waltham Cross and am still active in the music business. It’s in my blood. 😁

  • WOW (Good Vibes) I was born in 1960 living off Theobalds Grove In Cheshunt during this time so I was VERY young at the time and my first record which I still have is ‘Pickty Witch’ That same old feeling (1969). I DO HAVE A COUPLE OF albums of The KINKS (LOLA) and 7″ singles of the WHO However my niche market is the 70’s and 80’s and have just STARTED up my own DJ BUSINESS and looking to expand my 60’s collection. I supported ENFIELD FC throught the 80’s and 90’s till their demise and now a BIG FAN of ENFIELD TOWN FC and saw their first match at HOME to Grays in Ryman North Div 1 when they moved in to Donkey Lane I Live in West London at the moment and have been to a few games last season and will go to a few more this season. Brilliant blast from the past MARK W

  • Very interesting. I remember seeing some of these groups at the California Ballroom Dunstable. Plus elswhere, such as Watford, and believe it or not, Eric Burden and Chas. Chandler with Julie Grant at a fashion event in Hotham Park Bognor Regis in 1964. I took some cine film, which one day I will have to get transferred to DVD. But it is inconvenient at the moment.
