Named after Clayton Square in their home town of Liverpool, England, the Clayton Squares were a driving R&B band formed too late to cash in on the Mersey boom. The founding line-up comprised Mike Evans (tenor saxophone/leader), Denny Alexander (vocals/rhythm guitar), Pete Dunn (lead guitar/organ), Les Smith (alto saxophone), Geoff Jones (bass), and Bobby Scott (drums). They recorded two excellent singles for Decca Records, ‘Come And Get It’ and ‘There She Is’, but despite consistent touring and numerous international television appearances, the group was unable to achieve commercial success. The Clayton Squares disbanded in 1966 after which Evans joined late-period guitarist Andy Roberts in the Liverpool Scene.
