Remembering Alan Palliser

Here's the photo of my dad in the Alley cats. 
I have asked my mam when it was taken and she thinks it's the early 60's. 
She can't remember all of their names, from left to right - 2nd left is Joe Errington, 3rd left is John Franklin, then Bob Forster on drums, then there's Bill  - possibly Wright - but she can't remember. And then my dad of course on piano. 
We have some other photos too, stored away, of the River City Jazzmen mainly, I will have a look soon and send them too. 
Thanks again for the lovely mention for my dad, he would have been chuffed

Thanks Barbara - I wonder if any of our older readers can identify the clarinetist?
