He would not have been a Sir at that time, of course, and he did not marry Cleo until 1958. You could have dated her!
Thank you RR,
My apologies............can we please stay on topic please...we do have a thread for you tube music
It’s a nice, relaxing Sunday morning, and I’m sitting here awaiting the cricket commentary so it seems time for another visit to songs ancient and modern. Ancient: American (nearly) society bands have always fascinated me so how about Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadians in 1928, Coquette...birminghamhistory.co.uk
Yes Johnny Dankworth was I think a regular favourite. Very likely wrong but to me he was so in love with Cleo that he surrenderd his everything to her. She had a great voice but I didn't like her style.And hopefully the Sir Johnny Dankworth band!
Tim, I am not sure either but I think you might be correct!Yes Johnny Dankworth was I think a regular favourite. Very likely wrong but to me he was so in love with Cleo that he surrenderd his everything to her. She had a great voice but I didn't like her style.
I'm not a musician, just like what I like.
Great days and happy memories.
Unfortunately Bob, those days of being “cleaned up” are sadly long gone!Some memories in this thread and we all seem to remember Humph at the Town Hall...Onions and When the Saints... and the big bands, especially the polished performances of the Heath band. One of the things I remember that is noticeable on this thread and on another thread is how smartly we all dressed. Suited and booted.
