During the late 60's/early 70's, the The RJ Combo were resident in the Queens hotel and the Lido in Silloth. They also played at the Sunset Inn plus other private functions.
They went under the name of "The RJ Combo" due to the fact that the music stands already had RJ painted on them when they acquired them!!.
The line up in the picture above was (left to right Alan Williams on guitar, vocals and harmonica, Brian Coyles on drums, Aubrey Melville on piano and Trombone (Alan played chords on the piano while Aubrey played trombone) and Bob Jardine on his electric accordion.
Sadly Aubrey and Brian are no longer with us, and Bob has returned to his native Scotland.
