Back in the heady days of the 60s Henry Fawcett and Brian Taylor formed the Johnny Taylor 5 up in the North East and played gigs all over the North including The Liverpool Cavern as a support band for the Beatles, and later again in Liverpool as a support band for The Rolling stones.
Over the years they played in different line-ups, appearing on The Jimmy Young Show, BBC Bristol, and with Dave Allen on The Middlesbrough Empire.
In 2005 they teamed up with Graham Thompson, a brilliant session pianist who had played on cruise liners supporting artists like Bob Monkhouse, Carl Denver, Bert Weedon, Bony M, and the Rocking Berries. Later two talented young singers from the North East, Lisa Lawlor and Wendy Moutrey joined the band adding glamour, style and a modern repertoire.
The event: a 50s/60s rock n Roll / Jive dance night is promoted by The Khiraule Education Project , a local South Lakeland Charity, who support a village, school and health clinic in the Khiraule Valley, a remote area in Nepal, East of Everest.
