I came across this article when upgrading our site in 2012, it was a reply on our forum regarding a band line up list for the Terry Hines Sextet, it refers to the Clayton Squares also. I republish it below....
Re: The Terry Hines Sextet and the clayton squares by george roberts » Sun Aug 15, 2010 5:26 pm
I am George Roberts, original Manager of the, 'Clayton Squares'. Formed by, Terry Hines and Bobby Scott.
During 1962, I found Terry Hines, lead singer and rhythm guitar, Bobby Scott, drums and another guy rehearsing in a closed, to the public, pub during the morning time somewhere along near West Derby, Breck Road or by Newsham General Hospital, I can't be sure exactly.
A Mother to/of one of them was the cleaner therein, whilst they were rehearsing! That day I impressed Terry and Bobby with my Original Cavern Club connections. The other lad, whose name I forget, was not impressed, he decided that very day he did not want to go down to my connections at the Cavern.
This find of mine was to lead to possible fame and fortune for Terry as I viewed him as particularly gifted as a, Rhythm & Blues singer, of excellence, which he turned out to be, minus the fame and fortune.
Within days of rehearsing in the basement of 54 Huskisson Street, Liverpool 8, my home address, we brought in Peter Dunne. We decided that a saxophone would be beneficial to the sound and we auditioned, Mike Evans on alto saxophone. He accepted our invitation to join.
Thereafter I found them work all over, what is now termed, 'Merseyside'. During these outings, Bob Wooler of the original Cavern Club became interested in the band and we formed a legally binding contract of joint management between Bob Wooler and George Roberts, (Me) and Cavern artists Ltd. This contract was signed by the parents of, Terry Hines, Bobby Scott and Peter Dunne, Mike Evans signed for himself.
I became tour Manager, on the road, with the band, all over England, Scotland and Wales. During these times we integrated with the Liverpool poets and became their band of choice for TV appearances and the like, 'happenings' were the order of the day. The Liverpool poets were, Adrian Henri, Mike McCartney, Brian patten, Roger McGough and John Gorman! This situation continued until 1965, when I left the business abruptly. having been given a, 'whisper in my ear' by Mike Evans about infidelity between my ex-wife and a band member.
I think Terry continued with the Clayton Squares for a few months and he left to form the Terry Hines Sextet and that's where the main article about the sextet begins. All this background information can be read, as contextual information on me, in a thesis, called, "Ideas of belonging in the work of John Lennon and Paul McCartney" by Doctor James McGrath at Leeds Metropolitan University.
Thank you for this opportunity to set some records straight, Mr George Roberts aged 73 on 10/11/2010.
