Very sad news to hear about Ronnie Blamire.

I first worked with Ronnie at the Regency Club in Morecambe during the late 1960s. We backed the Cabaret Acts and played for Dancing.  I believe he also played the Cruise Ships as well.

One of the things I remember was that he used to play a feature of the "Les Dawson Comedy Style" keyboard  to entertain the punters.  He also could do a feature playing the "Silent Movie Piano" routine brilliantly!.

Many happy memories of Ronnie. A great  musician and he will be sadly missed
