A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
Essex was always looking for new opportunity to make money and mentions providing dance bands for 'Hunt Balls' etc. in his reminiscences. I have not traced any other information relating to these bands but I do not think that they will have been banjo bands. Essex again demonstrates that he catered, quite wisely, for the 'upper crust' as he did right from the start with his showroom and studio situated in the former premises of Sir Henry Irving on Grafton Street (New Bond Street) to provide assurance to his smart clientele of the respectability of the banjo and kindred instruments.
