Billy J. Kramer & the Dakotas, not only signed to Epstein’s  NEMS management but also The Beatles label Parlophone with the Lennon & McCartney penned Bad to Me.

Tommy Quickly, also signed with NEMS, but on Picadilly Records with another 1963 Lennon & McCartney “give away” Tip of My Tongue.

Also on the bill with Johnny Sandon & the Remo Four. The Remo Four were another Liverpool band who also recorded as Tommy Quickly band and as the New Dakotas with Billy J. Kramer.

‘The Fabulous’ Heinz : Joe Meek’s lover and recording star who never quite caught.

Plus US  singer Tommy Roe, who’d toured with the Beatles on the Chris Montez Tour in 1963 before The Beatles shot to top of every bill.
