    What did they wear at the mecca.

    it was more like the other clubs where the jazz funk guys were wearing different stuff as blackpool mecca you had to be fairly smart jacket and tie job to get in, but it was loud shirts peg trousers with pyjama cord belts floppy haircuts whistles were in use a lot. clubs like angels burnley, Ritz alldayers were a mix of the two northern and the jazz funk crowd
