Roof Raisers (2)

Peter Davenport left the Stargazers in the Summer of 1982. He later formed this band heavily influenced by the Jodimars and Bill Haley around 1984. The first line-up included Neil Barnet (vocals), Russell Gillam (double bass) John Tuck (drums, who played in Dynamite band and with The Rapiers), Chris Gardner (piano, clarinet, sax) and Davenport on guitar.
The band played some local gigs then the line-up evolved, featuring Jacko Buddin (Flying Saucers, Dynamite band and later vocalist with The Comets), Andy Dunnet (sax) with Gardner concentrating on piano. They recorded two tracks (Both Bop A Doo A Doo Bop and Let's Loose Those Blues, both written by Davenport) at University of East Anglia concert hall/studio in Norwich for Northwood Records that appeared on the compilation album "Big Noise From Northwood".
They disbanded around the first half of 1985.
