Does anyone remember my Dad singing jazz . He was known as Derek King & he sang with the Keith Peters Jazz band . I would be interested if anyone has tapes of him singing

Places like the Brincliffe Oaks at nether edge & the Harley hotel . Also he sang at Shoulder of Mutton in Derbyshire when Russ & Ray had it . And , he sang with Keith Bentley in Rotherham but I cant remember which pub , would have to ask Mum about that one. I have got a tape of him singing & he sounds so good .

Hi Fairyworld

i was hoping that maybe i could help as my uncle used to play in a jazz band in sheffield , but it seems that it was well before your dad did the rounds.

 

Hopefully some of the customers that used to go in the Brincliffe oaks and the Harley hotel will remember your dad .. good luck.

Thanks anyway Beer Barrel

I am only asking because there may be someone with some more tapes or even videos of him singing . I know the people who liked his singing used to tape him . He started singing in public late because he was too shy before , but once he made the push , there was no stopping him :)
