Remembering the rein of the Rockavons

editorial image

Belper group the Rockavons rubbed shoulders with some of the most popular groups of their age - sharing the bill with the likes of The Moody Blues and The Mersey Beats.

Pictured here circa 1965 the line-up comprised of (from left) Dennis Froggatt, bass; Graham Meakin, guitar; Tony Simmons, guitar; Alan Toft, singer and Mick Burrel, drummer at the front.

They were a regular sight at all the local pubs in and around Belper and the rest of Derbyshire during the sixties.

Do you have any memories of one of their performances you would like to share? Write in to 8 Heanor Road, Ilkeston, DE7 8ER or drop a letter at our community postbox at News Corner, King Street, Belper.
