He brought music and many famous acts to the City in the 60s such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye,Tina Turner and Joe Cocker was a regular at Peter’s clubs. All remained friends throughout his life. His Sheffield clubs are remembered affectionately by many.
“We believe Peter James Stringfellow should be celebrated as a famous and valued son of our great City – a Sheffield legend.”
