Musical Chairs

While on the topic of singers, we realized that many of the singers moved from band to band and at the same time,  some bands couldn't seem to hold onto singers for more than a couple of years, or less. On this page we have tried to start tracing some of the "musical chairs" that were the fabric of the showband era.
