Under Gary Winkler’s Globaldale Management, Dooyah! flourished on the R&B and live band circuit across the UK. Working with big names like Fast Freddie & The Fingertips, The Boogie Brothers Blues Band, The Bay City Rollers and Georgie Flame and the Blue Flames, Dooyah! appearances included The 100 Club, Dingwalls, The Town & Country Club, The Mean Fiddler and The Cliff’s Pavilion.
They headlined at The Herald Of Free Enterprise Disaster Festival and recorded with Stevie Wonder’s producer Malcolm Cecil. Radio appearances and play across the UK culminated in Essex Radio’s Roger Dexter co-producing their 1987 AA sided single ‘Love’s Where You Find It/Spend! Spend! Spend!’.
Dooyah! songwriter Gary Thompson had previously had chart success in the 70′s band Tonight. Dave Dulake currently fronts Virgo Intacta. 2008 saw Dooyah! featured on BBC television’s Inside Out. The live tracks In Praise Of Older Women and Wear It Out were written by Gary Thompson.

Jeff Kristian (vocals/keyboards) Jeff Moody (percussion/keyboards)
Jeff met Jeff Moody when he had been drummer to his previous band Berry Lane. Prior to that, Moody had been drummer for Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson.
Tzotzil did few live performances, mostly around the South-East of England. One highlight was a theatrical showcase at Radclythe Manor, Buckinghamshire in 1983. There was also a Showcase Special on Basildon Radio, 1983. They had a single release with ‘The Tzotzil’ in 1983.
NEW WAVE BAND
Jeff Kristian (vocals/keyboards), Chris Burdon (guitar), Steve Parr (bass), John Chamberlain (drums #1), Doug Garvie (drums #2), Jeff Moody (drums #3)
Though Jeff performed with eleven different professional bands around Essex in the early 80′s, his first full time outfit Berry Lane came out of Basildon, Essex – very big at the time for electronic music. Acts such as Vince Clark’s Yazoo and Depeche Mode used the same rehearsal rooms as Berry Lane. They performed at The Basildon Ballzup, which legend records as Alison Moyet’s 21st birthday party.
Other live performances were mostly around Essex and the South-East of England. A single ‘Gypsy Girl’ was released in 1982.
