Jimmy Jack (UK) Details about drummer Jimmy Jack's career are still a bit scanty. He was a member of The Masterkeys dance band in mid-1934. In 1935, he was present on one recording session for The Six Swingers (directed by George Scott Wood). At the time, this was a studio (recording) group only and Jimmy's presence makes it likely he was in demand for one-off gigs and recording / broadcast work. He was subsequently a member of Billy Thorburn's band when Billy first formed it in 1936 and was with the band for about 6 months. He joined Henry Hall's band in spring 1939, but it is not known how long he was with the band. The family tell me Jimmy led his own band at The Dorchester Hotel (possibly during or after WWII) and he also worked at The Pavilion Hotel in Scarborough. Later in his career, he was the original drummer in the stage show of The Boy Friend at the Wyndham Theatre, London.
