The Chris Barber Website Message Board

  Author   Comment  
I'm writing a book (on the history of the Academy Cinema and the building it occupied) of which a section will be devoted to the first iteration of the Marquee at 165 Oxford Street, below the cinema.
I'd really love to know if Chris might have any memories or thoughts to share - about the atmosphere or that venue versus other such venues etc. If I was able to talk to him it would be wonderful as there are so few people left who took an active role in the club. Could the mods possibly ask if this is possible?
If anyone else here has any ephemera or photographs of the venue, inside or out, I would love to see them - or any memories that help paint a picture of that period between '58 and '64 when it played host to Chris, Ottilie et al., and Alexis Korner and the early Stones.
Please drop me a line on 😉
Thanks and happy Christmas,

Hi Pete
Thanks for your lines here in the message board.

I will forward your request to Chris directly, hoping he will answer to you very soon.

Best regards


Co-Webmaster Chris Barber/Big Chris Barber Band
