My name is nigel filmer, I started work at R&Js in 1979 I had come from Mecca Samanthas/Tiffanys/ Crazy Daisy to join EMI the first owners of R&JS the 1st manager was Dave Jamason from crazy Daisy, I dj in the Romeo room with a band, the company became Thorne EMI then became First Lesure, about a year or so after the Cairo Jax refit and silks bar add on, I left to go to Blue Lace in Bradford, I was called back to sort out the <Removed> with the sound & lightning, then I moved to 7th Heaven in Doncaster, still carried on sorting out the sound & lighting in SHEFFIELD till the venue was sold on,stayed on in Doncaster after the refit to Karisma,moved to Club WOW Sheffield till it closed, lots of info on management,DJs, lighting jocks,and staff+door staff. Hope this has been a insight to bank street, posted once before when a DJ said he had worked a club I was at! So Walter Mittys beware!

I loved it when it opened in 67 when I was 20 as The Cavendish, however I have a theory as to why    clubs/discos lose their popularity when their clientele get into their mid twenties and start earning good money. With me I didn’t need the free tickets,  I went the suburban/Derbyshire pub route which were free to enter, along with many of my contemporaries, most of the pubs did ‘after bird’, sold decent food and didn’t suffer nutters gladly. We were part of the party circuit, I met my wife along with many friends, which I would never have done in the city centre, I simply grew out of it.
