While Hayman continued with Captain Custard, The 1860 Band – whose name was imaginatively taken from the Lambton Quay tavern at which it held an extended Saturday afternoon residency – kept drinkers happy with a selection of jazz, funk and disco grooves, culminating in the release of their self-titled 1978 debut and swansong, now a very sought-after item by rare groove hunters the world over.

Rob Winch - bass
Geoff Culverwell - flugelhorn

The late Martin Winch hit it big later on in his career with the easy listening Espresso Guitar album in 2002, which hit No.1 on the local charts, and sold over 80,000 copies.
