GROOVE ADDICT : 2020

Press

Read an article on a post Bob Stanley on Guardian

"In the summer, the scene would move en masse to Ostend, Belgium's equivalent to Blackpool. DJ Freddy Cousaert played at the Groove, a late night downstairs bar frequented by US marines, lovers of blues and soul music
and tourists, it was Cousaert who later looked after Marvin Gaye during his 80s sejourn in Ostend. The music he played at the Groove included ska, Latin jazz and even Broadway songs such as Stranger in Paradise, or Whatever Lola Wants from Damn Yankees...."

THE ESQUIRES GET UP and GET AWAY

BUNKY RECORDS 1967                                   BS 300


credits:

The Esquires first formed in 1957 around the Moorer family, whose Gilbert
 (died: 28 August 2008),[1] Alvis, and Betty all became members. They went
 through many lineup changes over their first decade, which saw them 
aiming mostly for local recognition. In 1966 they moved to Chicago and 
auditioned for Curtis Mayfield, who was not interested in signing them.
They then attempted to sign with Constellation Records, but the record 
label went under at the end of 1966; they signed instead with Bunky Records,
Constellation's successor. Bunky was distributed
 by Scepter Records on the national level.
Members:
    Gilbert Moorer
