Coventry Hitmakers


Known for their ‘mad’ on stage antics, they played six months in Germany, and even recorded a single Hunny Bunny. Bev Jones was once a member and married lead vocalist Johnny Wells.  Jeff Lynne was once a member of the band (for a short spell). He left the band and joined the Birmingham unit the Nightriders, who became the Idle Race. Then onto The Move, ELO and the world.




”I wouldn’t have missed the German tour for the world, and it was hard for me because I had a wife and family at home. We worked three to four hours a night six days a week and rehearsed on the seventh. Yes it was hard work, but an opportunity I couldn’t miss”.
