  • Aubrey Bedingfield – Saxophone
  • Roy Jenkins – Saxophone
  • Kathleen Bedingfield – Piano
  • Brian Steane – Drums (on an occasional basis)

Aubrey and his band were very active on the Gwelo scene during the 1960’s.  Generally speaking, they were a dance band featuring two saxophonists, double bass, piano and drums.  Aubrey’s son, DAVID BEDINGFIELD, was also a pianist and performed regularly.  He was often a member of a trio which included a double bass and Brian Steane on drums forming a popular residency at the Midlands Hotel’s Grill Room.  Sadly, David’s death at the very young age of 21 was to deprive the Rhodesian music scene of one of its most promising talents.
