Yes Fran, I remember Vi and my husband, who I met at Studio 51, and I made a pilgrimage to the club about twenty years ago and Vi was still there. I believe it was a rehearsal place for dancers at that time. I also rememer Johnny Dankworth playing there in the fifties with Cleo Laine who was about 16 and wore pigtails. Wonderful memories of fantastic music. (Betty)

I was a very young matelot, in the early fifties and went to the club. I seem to remember Dizzie Gillespie doing a gig. Ah! Nostalgia for the greatest jazz. (Derek)

I was a regular visitor to Studio 51 in early Sixties. Saw some great groups there, including the Stones, the Yardbirds, the Downliners Sect, and a whole host of fantastic blues singers from America. Fabulous days!!! (David Soulsby)
