"You know, I
feel that Gerry Levene & The Avengers have never been given enough
credit for the part they played in the start of Brum's 60's music
scene. They were one of the first bands to be gigging in and around
the Manchester & Liverpool areas during the start of the Liverpool
boom, working with such greats as The Beatles, The Searchers etc.,
long before many of us other Brummie bands. He was also one of the
first performers to have the guts to wear a silly lame suit!! Sorry
Gerry, but the girls loved it! We had many good times working together over the years and Gerry will be missed both from the music scene, but also for being a great friend to many. One of the best. You will always be fondly remembered.
Over the years Gerry
& wife Maz have had several business ventures in the field of music.
One being a Management Agency for bands during which time they managed
Body & Soul featuring Cissy Stone and people like Danny King &
Cozy Powell. Sending many of them to Fulder in Germany.
Soveriegn Music was
also a record company owned by Gerry & Maz releasing many albums
from classical to pop & including such acts as Drowsy Maggie, Shenannigins,
English Philomonic Orchestra, Quill, Mike Sheridan, Lisa Carter, Elmer
Goodbody, Gary Perkins & Lisa Stansfield. A selection of novelty
albums were also highly successful and these included:- the Wurlitzer,
Fun of The Fair and Pan Pipes.
For many years they continued to enjoy the world of Dog showing & breeding.
