I WON­DER if you can help me trace the peo­ple in the at­tached photo ( above)?

It was taken in 1974 in Di­a­mond Lil’s Wild West Cabaret Bar in the Sky­line Ho­tel (now the Sher­a­ton Sky­line Ho­tel) on the Bath Road near Heathrow Air­port.

The singer who played ‘Di­a­mond Lil’ was Gabrielle Parker and I am to her im­me­di­ate right.

I was the leader of The Banjo Boys and we per­formed six nights a week at this five-star venue.

Gabrielle and I have de­cided to mark the 40th an­niver­sary of our col­lab­o­ra­tion with an af­ter­noon show called Come To The Cabaret at The Beck The­atre, Hayes, on Tues­day, Septem­ber 16 at 2.30pm.

The guys in the bow ties are The Banjo Boys (from the ITV se­ries, The Co­me­di­ans) and the re­main­ing girls and boys are the 10 staff.

We’d love to try and track them down to in­vite them to our show next month.
