Since developing this website in 1997 there has been demand for Personality Pages, and some of these requests have come from families of the dance band stars! Please contact me if you would like a webpage for an old-time musician in YOUR family. Maybe you had contact with a musical family? I have listed some names that we'd like to know more about at Musicians Research. Also, to satisfy enquiries on births and deaths I have prepared the British Remembrance Book, a calendar of births and deaths in the British Dance band scene 1880-2012. And a Gallery of Photos of British dance bands and musicians is being assembled.

But THIS PAGE lists the old-time music personalities that we HAVE dealt with and prepared Tribute Webpages.
