                                                                                                                              Click on pictures on how we all started in the early years
         I am trying to add a band or two each week from recordings  made over the years with pictures to match from venues
        that have ceased, or  even don't exist any more, also Burtie's Hall of fame, hear what the present and sadly the ones
        that have left us sounded like. I would like to add that a lot of this information would  not be possible if it was not for
       the references from Clive Brooks book:TRAD MAD  - a wonderful book of the concise history of the Traditional Jazz Revival
       in Kent -   thanks Clive. - sadly Clive is no longer with us
