The Inspiration - circa 1972-73
John Chappell (Drums), Allan Brown (Guitar), John Storey (Saxophone), Dave Ruth (Bass Guitar) and Dennis Grant (Organ/Keyboards)
(Chris Fox, who is not shown, also drummed for the group)

This was a "pub band"capable of playing all the hits of the day (albeit sometimes with highly recreated lyrics), and they were one of the most consistent pop bands on the local hotel scene.  Resident at the Valley Inn Tavern for more than two years, and being somewhat unusual in their inclusion of a saxophone.  The three images immediately below cover iterations of the band over the years 1973 through to 1975.  Individual members are shown at the bottom of the page in an approximate order of participation.
