SUCCESS FOR OUR VOICES PROJECT AT S.P.A.C.E. IN BOOTLE AS LIVERPOOL STARS FROM THE SIXTIES COME TOGETHER TO PAY FOR A BRAND NEW RECORDING STUDIO.

Bands from the 60's including The Merseybeats, The Foremost, The Pete Best Band, The Swinging Blue Jeans, agent Hal Carter and Cavern City Tours - were so impressed with the staff at the centre and the effort they put into running workshops and training programmes that they agreed to pay for a new studio which can be used by young people in Bootle.

Local bands will be able to use the studio to make quality demo tapes and get a professional service from the S.P.A.C.E. technicians who are dedicated to giving them a future in the world of music.

Bernie, John and Danny were speechless when Billy Kinsley from the Merseybeats made the surprise announcement live on the Roger Lyon programme. Billy said "it's a great opportunity for the bands to put something back into the local community - we'll ontinue to support the centre in any way we can."
