Hi folks, I'm researching jazz and dance music in Ireland preceding the show-bands. My grandfather was Richie Burbridge and he played with Joe Coughlan in the Metropole, Ballerina and the gresham. Would anybody have information about the dance orchestras of the 30s-50s? Any information would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to get in contact with as many people as I can that may have played in these dance/jazz ensembles. Smiley

He also played with Jimmie Masson and Phil Murtagh. Would anybody have any information regarding these two band leaders? Thanks Smiley

Hi Trumpet Girl,
I have some information regarding dance bands in the 30s - 50s, all fairly unorganised. I'd also be interested in what information you've got also. Get in touch.
Best,
Damian
