Artefact

This photo was taken at Tiffany's on Oxford Rd. Manchester at a Charity Disco Extravaganza they held. The photo shows all the Manchester D.J.s that took part, some of whom were quite famous; Mike Shaft is one of them; also Simon Barton-Bates, Steve Reno,Jonny Owen,and Ed Simons. Sad Cafe made a personal appearance,as did the lead singer of the Olympic Runners (sorry I can't remember his name). It was a fantastic event. Does anyone remember the names of the other D.J.'s ? The photo was taken by a professional photographers who were based on Washway Rd. Sale and I think it was for publication in a local newspaper.

Yes it is. If you study it there's Marvin Gaye above Stevie Wonder and Junior Walker below. On the right side there's Diana Ross.
