The Rocking Chair Blues Band are down as playing at the Coventry Arts Umbrella Club on 22nd November 1969 - 
as shown in the illustration, and at the Umbrella club on a Friday band night in early 1970. 

The following is from Pete Clemon's article on Barnabus in the Coventry Telegraph october 2013.
" Rocking Chair Blues band last performed in the late 60's. Tony Cox left to form Barnabus. They were a popular act back then, regularly seen at venues such as the Drumbeat club at the Globe Hotel in Warwick, They were also on the bill in November 1069 for the weekend Music Marathon at the Coventry Arts Umbrella Club alongside such bands as the Chris Jones aggression, Wandering John, Dando Shaft etc."

In the 70's I saved this advert from Melody Maker but it was probably another band called Rocking Chair.
