The Dennisons

The Dennisons

The Beatles were the only group that people associated with a collarless suit in the States. Interestingly, the Dennisons were wearing the same outfits in this promo-ad for PHOTO-CAST 1963/64 [edition 8]. The agents/managers had to buy their space by august ’62 so am not sure of exact dates of the photographs recorded in the publication.

“The Dennisons were formed in 1962, at Liverpool Collegiate and took their name from a Liverpool street.
They were inspired by another early Merseybeat band The Ravens, who later became Faron’s Flamingos. The Dennisons advanced from learning the Ravens’ chord patterns, to building a local reputation at the BICC club in Melling, Liverpool. They signed with Kennedy Street Enterprises in 1963, which ensured that they appeared at The Cavern Club, sharing bills with other aspiring acts such as The Beatles.”


My research began in 2007 as a visitor to the north of Scotland. With a fascination for the beat music era that took place throughout the UK, my research investigates the late '50s through early 1970s. Relying on interviews, the Albert Bonici archives, and other resources, I continue to gather materials to tell the story of a special time in music in the mid 20th century. Scottish promoter, Albert Bonici, brought many of the top beat music acts to Scotland which delighted music lovers during the early days of the beat music era. SCOTBEAT was created to share a bit of history about the BEAT years in Scotland and remembers the contributions of promoter, Albert Bonici, a man with a vision who, with the help of his family and staff, created a happening that is still fondly remembered by those who attended dances and concerts. Besides other local resources and interviews, SCOTBEAT presents exclusive photos, adverts, and documents from the A Bonici Archives [circa 1960s].
