A walk in the park - Nick Straker Band

The Nick Straker Band formed in the late Seventies. Its members were Nick Straker, Tony Mansfield, David McShera, Pete Hammond and Phil Towner. In 1979 they released 'A walk in the park', a rather innovative disco song. It did not reach the Dutch Top 40, but it did peak at number 20 in the UK singles chart.

Tony Mansfield and Nick Straker were also members of New Musik, but while Straker didn't return to his old group, Mansfield did. Both the Nick Straker Band and New Musik did not meet a lot of commercial success after 'A walk in the park'.
