The Temperance Seven

The Temperance Seven

Despite the name, they are an 8-piece vaudeville jazz band from the London area. They formed in 1955.

Their style can best be described as quintessentially English and play a hybrid of 20s and 30s jazz delivered with light humour.

Key members include: Captain Chris Buckley - leader and sousaphone, Colonel Galloway, Michael Grimsargh Deighan ASBO (no really) and Flight Cmdr Rixon.

Their biggest hit was in 1961, 'You're Driving Me Crazy'.
