The Square Set started one March day in 1966. Neville Whitmill , Derek Marks and Keith Moffat met Nol Klinkhamer with the idea of making music professionally.
Composition, arrangements and rehearsals went on daily for 6 months before the band presented itself to the public. “Silence is Golden” our own composition went on to make it to No1 within 3 months of its release. “That’s what I Want” made it to no1 in South America (both Brazil and Argentina) and Portugal in 1971/1972 respectively. The band went on to create many singles like ‘Carol Carina’ ‘Get me some Help’ as well as produce 3 full albums with great successes in South Africa, South America, Portugal, Angola, Mozambique, Belgium Congo and many more countries. The revival is taking place to represent the original music, with a few changes to the arrangements plus the addition of popular Motown and Soul songs to old and new fans alike.
