Steve Stephenson Show Band.

Our man in Hong Kong, Colin, sent us this clipping from 1965, Colin, who played trumpet with the band with the band from 1977-1986 wonders if the band took up the offer to play at La Dolce Vita in Newcastle.
As he and the article point out, this looked like the beginning of the end for big bands as a viable proposition.
