Tequila Twist ’72 ~ contributed by Bosco D’souza

Tequila Twist ~ 1972

Live music, great food, lots of booze and dancing were the hallmarks of the scene.  Shown here is ‘The Panthers’, a club band playing to a happy audience at a ‘mid-range’ nightclub in Karachi (in 1972).

According to former nightclub owner and entrepreneur, Tony Tufail, ‘Karachi would have gone on to become what Dubai later became if not for the ban.’*
*Nightclubs were closed down in April 1977

The Panthers were ~ Norman Braganza (lead and vocals), Fasahat Hussein (sitar, keyboard and tabla), Eric Fernandes (bass) and Ahsan Sajjad (drums and lead vocals) –

They formed in 1967

  1. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and
    entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the
    head. The issue is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I came across this during my search for something concerning this.
