Majestic Dance Band

1950s

Jimmy Olin (Leader on saxophone), Lottie Duckworth (pianist), Neill Bamford (drummer), Tom French (double bass) at the Mayfair Lounge, Worcester Street. This venue had the only white grand piano in Christchurch. The men dressed in black suits, white shirts and bow ties. The lady a long dress. Not many women played in dance bands but Lottie was an excellent pianist. They played at Balls, 21st birthdays and wedding dances. Winning Entry in the 2008 Christchurch City Libraries Photo Hunt by Merle Conaghan. The judges felt that this photograph, also the 1950s decade winner, encapsulated the spirit of the fifties and portrayed a moment in social history that will not be seen again.
