Boys in the Bands by Chris Scott Wilson

Regular price £29.99

Tax included.

Boys in the Bands, written by Chris Scott Wilson, charts the rise of The Renegades among many other groups.

The Renegades played the same ballroom circuit as the Beatles and the book has three pages centring on the band, including a family tree and seven photos.  In the golden decade of the 60s, when rock ’n’ roll gave way to Merseybeat and R&B, and then morphed into progressive and blues-rock, Teesside had many hardworking local bands.

But they all started on Teesside, learning their craft, honing their musical chops, learning how to work a crowd, and if they got to be good enough, they became The Boys In The Bands.
