Memories
The band moved to London in April 1966, where they recorded a demo disc at Regent Sound in Denmark Street. Their new manager, Alvin Roy, submitted the disc to Decca, who were interested but the band split before any deals were made.

The Hollis Brown Group played quite often at The Assembly Rooms, on Friday or Saturday nights, during 1965 and early 1966.
