Looking back at past years of entertaining. 1966-2020

1966 to 2020 looking back.

Here are photo's from those years.

In 1966 I joined the British Army The 1st King's Regt,. as a bandsman.

This is where the training came from to help me become an entertainer.

Marching the streets of Hamburg 1970

1970 Minden Germany

Always been a fan of "JIMI HENDRIX" what a photo

1973 to get the look right was important to me.

The fashion in Hong Kong was very Americanized thus here I am.

What was I thinking, really !!!!

1972-1974 The look soon progressed to the rest of the group and,

"Hey"  the band had character a style a look of the 70s and 80s                                        "THE KINGTONES" 

were from left to right

 Me Lead Vocals & Guitar,                    

 Brian Lane   drums,      

 Susan Butler vocals,         

 Robert Crabtree Vocals,                      

 George Youper  Bass.


This band was together in Germany, Preston, Hong Kong. .

1974 November I left the Army and took on a full head of hair, and a new outlook, I needed to find a way to entertain in civvy street.

Clubs and pubs all over the country had entertainment,

So teamed up with Robert Crabtree an ex Army mate,

and started a Duo called.

1975  Hetherington & James 

This lasted a few years and was great fun,

but we both felt the need to go solo. 

So took on the roll of solo artiste with a lot of success.

Bryan Hetherington solo act 1979. working with

Janet Wilson & the Supreme's, The  Crankeys,

Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders,

Matt Munrow, Del Shannon, Jimmy Cricket, Roy Chubby Brown, Bernard Manning, Eddy Flannigan, Ken Dodd, Rainbow Cottage, Malcolm Vaughn, Eric Delaney,  to name but a few.

1980's found me working all over the world in many way's as

"BRYAN KRAMER" multi instrumentalist on the cruise ships             As a multi-instrumentalist performing to

                          multi nationalities.

Sitting in with the band as a lounge musician.

 Turning to my skills as a dancer.

Three part harmony songs from  "The Show Stopper".

Of course there had to be leisure, some of the time. Barbados after a sudden downpour.

My love's, golf & horse riding in the Caribbean.

                         The SUN CHASER

 This is the latest addition to my life
