Burry Port Gondoliers
« on: Wednesday 13 December 17 21:23 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone. I recently found out that my grandfather was the drummer and leader of a jazz band called the "Burry Port Gondoliers". Bit of a surprise to me as I never knew he was the least bit musical. This would have been in the 1940s-1950s I think, probably after he left the army.

So far I can't find any reference to them anywhere - I can't imagine they did more than play in various fetes around the Burry Port area but I would like to know more.

My searches so far have brought up nothing, so I wondered if anyone else with family in the area might have heard of them?

Fingers crossed  :)
