  1. Apparently, Willie Waters (1926 – 2011), Trevor Jewell (1922 – 2007) and Audrey Jewell (1926 – ) were also members or used to go round with the Banjo Band at one stage too.

    1. Groupies !! There seemed to be a lot of people that were involved with the Banjo Band, I had lessons on the Banjo when I was a lad with Rita Jacka down Fred Epletts.
