Noted Drummer

Mr. Noah Broadhead is back in Conisbrough after four years as drummer with Felix Mendelssohn and his Hawaian Seranaders, intent on forming his own band, if possible from local musicians.

Only son of Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Broadhead, 8 Athlestane Road, Conisbrough, and an old boy of Mexborough Secondary School, Mr. Broadhead is married to charming Joy Martin, a ‘Scots lassie,’ who was a vocalist with the Seranaders and was formerly with the Nat Allen’s band. She took part in eight broadcasts, her husband in about 100.

Mr. Broadhead, who was an original member of George Ryder’s (Mexborough) New Style Swintette, feels there is wide scope for entertainment tours in occupied countries.

He proposes to launch out on local work, and if possible to undertake such a tour at a later date. He himself, was in the Royal Air Force at the beginning of the War before discharge on medical grounds.
