The Portsmouth Music Scene
There may be gaps, missing names and no doubt mistakes - we would welcome further contributions to improve the record.
“Groups” refers specifically to those playing pop, beat, rhythm & blues, soul and rock music, broadly utilising amplified guitars and drums plus in some cases, other instruments.
Our aim is to include any group from/based in the Portsmouth area that made at least one public performance.
