Live: Davie Jones and the Manish Boys, Royal Star, Maidstone

Davie Jones and the Manish Boys performed at the Royal Star Hotel in Maidstone, Kent, on Saturday 14 November 1964.

Absent from this performance was the one of the band’s sax players, Paul Rodriguez.

The hotel was later converted to the Royal Star Shopping Arcade.
