The hall was cholkful of music. It was good music from Peter Rezant and his Famous Merry Blackbirds. I said to the fellow next to me, "What do you think of this fellow, Peter Rezant?" The fellow next to me said, 'Man first class." Peter Rezant was on the stage in nineteen nineteen, till today. He remembers the days when the band wouldn't play if they didn't have a four gallon of beer standing by, to keep them from falling.(Photograph by Drum Photographer Baileys Archive) neg 426
