What venues? Can you remember the names of any of the venues, where they were?

Yes. Well, we used to play the Town Hall, that was Police dances mostly. And then different organisations, you know we used to play different bands, different places. And our piano-player, he was an Englishman from Henley and he knew a lot of it, so we used to play Benson airport, you know for the airmen, and Polish dances for all these camps, and everywhere, we used to play there. It was a good band, very good band we used to have.
