Towards the end of the '60s, five of
Joe Dolan's Drifters left to form a new showband which they called
The Times. Fronted by Jimmy Swarbrigg, brother of trumpeter Tommy
and joined by lead guitarist Seán Kenny from The Mystics and
sax-player Gene Bannon from The Millionaires, they went on to become
a big draw on the ballroom and carnival circuit.
