One thought on “Travisty

  1. Jon (Joff) was Kitwood Boys 77-82 & Carl, Mark & Steve were BGS 79-84/5/6. The band formed in 1983 led by Jon, playing a mix of rock/metal covers and one or two of their own compositions (most notably Culloden) and were originally a 5-piece with a second guitarist, the late Shaun Upsall (BGS 79-86).

    The band played several gigs between 1983-86 but with people going their separate ways to work or further education, folded until reforming in 2010.

    In their early days, Mike Siddaway (BGS 79-86) did sound & lighting. Nowadays sound is managed by Graham Platt (BGS 81?-86), lighting being seen as a waste of time and available electric sockets.

    A regular venue is the Ship Tavern, as Carl is landlord and the band have a collective passion for Batemans ales!
