It is a smashing photo Val.   The guys at the front look like they have very short legs :-\

Tera are you takin' a hand outa me, the're sittin' down.... ::)

My husbands Uncle started this band in Brussels St, Shankill Rd. and I believe there was another brother and his two sons in it. Most of the members came from in and around Brussels St. and one of the conditions, was practice and playing to music.

Hi Shankill girl, what did he play, you never know it may have been the same band.
The Drum Major (Leader) I remember was a big military lookin' man who was nicknamed (Hutchie) I guess his name was Hutcheon.

"takin' a hand outa you" Val?   I'd never do a thing like that, honest.

Hi Val
I'm nearly sure it was the drum. I don't know if my aunts would remember what band it was; it was a long time ago. He'd be 100 if he was living now.  :o

Hi Val,
