Jim Diamond And The Lancers

Brian Sibley, Jim Diamond, Eddie Thompson, David Cheales, Trevor Chapman. Kangaroo Point, down river other side of the Story Bridge 1964

The lancers formed in 1961 as a four-piece group, playing around Brisbane in clubs and pub, and at church dances and private functions. An extremely versatile band, they could play a variety of styles, from the latest rock and pop songs to old time dance music.

By 1965 they had added an extra member in saxophone and harmonica at a time when they were engaged by Ivan Dayman to play on a regular basis at the Cloudland Ball-room (Every Tuesday and Thursday night playing 60s/40s rock music to be precise) and at the bowl in South Brisbane (every Friday and Saturday night playing all the latest rock and pop music, and backing various other touring artist such as Normie row and Tony Worsley)

To their credit they continued playing through until the 80s with various personnel changes during that time - all while retaining the original members Jim Diamond and David Cheales.
