Great. Keep 'em coming Andy. Just to keep you company, here's another of Homer, Bob Richardson and me playing interval to Ed at the Tram Sheds in 1961David
. I am trying to tack down various locations where Caseys Hot Seven might have played. I keep hearing about the tram sheds. Can you tell me where they were? Many thanks

Casey's Hot Seven played regularly in the Trades Club in Upper Fountain Street,which is now subsumed into "The Light" off the Headrow.

Thank you both. Did you ever see Caseys play Jim? I heard a tape of them once. It sounded ... scratchy...

Don’t know if this is how you reply to posts but I guess it works. Many thanks for the info. It looks like it was an interesting place. I would’ve loved to have seen it!

Either way of responding is fine. If you want to reference a specific post e.g. thanking someone for the information then quoting the post or relevant portions is probably best. If it is a general post e.g. thanking two or more contributors then quoting is probably not appropriate. However with a little knowhow on how the quoting works you can include several quotes in the single post.

Several times, but my memory is somewhat dim, it would be nearly sixty years ago. Based more or less on the 1923 King Oliver Creole Jazz Band with two cornet players, but with a brass bass instead of the string variety. I think the band was mostly composed of university students but could be wrong. I think Andy Holdorf (later of Shep's Banjo Boys) was on trombone, and John James may have been one of the cornet players. Small entry charge and the place was usually heaving. It must have been early in my own musical career, as I never had the temerity to ask to sit in! 1959/60 would be about right

Hello there. Now I’m looking for an address for Bradford Student's Club where jazz bands used to play back in the 50s. I’m guessing it was in Bradford but Ive been caught like that before! There’s a photo here of caseys playing at te Bradford students club. https://redhotstompers.home.blog/2020/0 ... azz-venus/
