Photos from First Night of the 59 Club with Founder
and his words summing up the atmosphere of those days.
A unique and unseen collection of original photographs from the heydays of The 59 Club featuring Curate John Oates - the Founder of The 59 Club. This is our memorial tribute to John, pictured on the right with Russ in the first picture.
Russ Sainty and the The Nu-Notes starred on the very first night of the 59 Club and at the official opening with Cliff Richard, Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon. They recorded a single especially for The 59 Club at HMV Studio on Oxford Street and play to a trainful of screaming teenagers on a day trip to Clacton-on-Sea. Inspiration for Cliff's " Summer Holiday " ?
