Goodbye Ricky’s Blues

1 Comment

Mick found these images on Facebook – it’s what remains of the interior of one of Pompey’s longer-standing venues from the 1950s onwards –  Ricky’s the Marina, the Sound Barrier, Vagabonds etc (others?). Apparently that whole row of places on Goldsmith Avenue is due to be flattened soon

One thought on “Goodbye Ricky’s Blues

  1. Happy memories of playing Ricky’s with the Dynamos sharing alternate weeks with the Diplomats. Ricky let us rehearse there too.
