Tony Hill (UK) Banjo & Guitar player, Tony Hill (1900 - 1986) was active mainly between 1921 and 1933 during which time he played for Percy Bush at the Oxford Galleries, and also for Leonard Pilbeam, Joe Loss, Geraldo and his Gaucho Tango Band and Don Sesta. Tony's name is not mentioned in Rust & Forbes "British Dance Bands on Record" discography, but it is likely he was on some of the recordings  by Geraldo and Don Sesta in the early 1930s.

Jack Howard (US / UK)
British-born saxophonist and bandleader who returned to England in 1920 (after emigrating to America before WWI), playing in Art Hickman's New York London Five and making a number of recordings for HMV and one for Winner. Then formed his own band to play at the Metropole Hotel in the Midnight Follies, and then at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden in the mid-1920s. Subsequently returned to America. The latter band also recorded for Duophone for their so-called unbreakable series of recordings. Unfortunately, these have proved to be more fragile than normal shellac records, and so are almost impossible to find in playable condition.
