Red Onions live performance

Click below to hear Gerry Humphries' vocal.  You will notice the obvious bridge between jazz and rock. There is an historic washboard solo by Sally Iggulden (later Sally Browne the couturier after she married Allan, the band's drummer).  

Also note the driving banjo-led rhythm section.  

'It's tight like that" was recorded live at the Kew Town Hall in 1963.

The average age of the band was 17 at the time.

Personnel:  Brett Iggulden trumpet;  Gerry Humphries clarinet;  Bill Howard trombone;

 Allan Browne drums;  Rainer Breit banjo;  Kim Lynch tuba.
