Have Trombone Will Travel - Tommy Weatherley.

Our man in Hong Kong, that intrepid trumpet player, trombonist, band leader and jazz archivist Colin Aitchison, has collated 38 photos and memorabilia of trombonist Tommy Weatherley. Photos show Tommy with bands such as Teddy Foster, The Squadronaires, Jimmy Bence, Harry Bence, Ronnie Keene and Don Smith. 
Some photos were taken on board Cunard liners others at various ballrooms including the Oxford Galleries.

PS: If anyone can add a few names please do.

Still have information to add, and some more photo's, as you no doubt know Ronnie McLean was my godfather, and Tommy was his brother-in-law, and the 3 of us all play trombone !!! it would be nice to have some memories on this blog from those who remember The Oxford, Don Smith, Ronnie Keene etc

My Dad played the trombone with Don Smith in the early 60s. His name was Derek Pilkington and his good friend Ken Bowers was on drums.

Dave, your Dad was my trombone teacher and my idol I remember going to your house in Whitley Bay on a Saturday morning for lessons. Along with Tommy who taught me at school they provided me with a full career in music and an enjoyment of Big Band music. I will forever be grateful to them both and will remember forever that rich Bolton accent with enormous fondness. Regards, Steve Humphrey
