The Sapphires

"Teenagers go crazy over them!"
Peter Robinson, an Argus reporter at the time, wrote this after seeing The Sapphires perform at The Starlight Rooms.

"They are without a doubt the best group ever to play at The Regent Ballroom!"
Alan Brown, Southern Area Manager of Top Rank.

"They are the most enthusiastic teenage band in the town and it will take them a long way to success!"
Stan Jacobs, Musical Director of the Starlight Rooms.
