In the following years there were changes in the line up and Bruce King joined in 1963. In the late  1960s the band went into recess, but reformed again in 1994, bringing in Bernie Allen (clarinet), and Merv Thomas (trombone, vocal). Then following some deaths and disability within the ranks, the band is now back in business, having welcomed Neville Grenfell (trumpet) and Cameron McArthur (double bass), and continuing to play swinging Dixieland jazz inspired by the Chicago style of Eddie Condon’s All Stars.
