Martin Fuggles was the DJ at the Ricky-Tick, Windsor from 1965 to 1967. He was persuaded to come out of retirement after over 40 years and got back behind the turntables to play a set at Club Rude! in Reading on 17 February 2011. He played the same vinyl that he used to play on the golden piano all those years ago.
Having got a taste for it again, he’s been keen to share those sounds with everyone who remembers the mod sounds of the 60s or is just inquisitive about what it was like back then by playing a Ricky-Tick set or two at various events so why not come along? Next date –
Sunday May 15 2022 – Ricky Tick Revisited! at The Hope, Ward Royal Parade, Alma Road, Windsor, SL4 3HR.
He is now making plans for the Ricky-Tick stage at the Retro Festival at Newbury Showground on August 12/13/14 2022. More info here
