The Blue Note doubled as the rehearsal room for the Balfodem group management acts. The most famous band they managed was The Famous Watson Browne Band.
The vocalist of the group was Tony Owens who is the authority on all things Browne. More details can be found using this link from the Manchesterbeat website:
The Famous Watson Browne Band were managed by Balfodem Management, out of the Blue Note and often used to practise in the club. Tony recently managed to catch up with the two entrepreneurs from those far off days and kindly sent a photograph. Great to see them all looking so well.
