In the early sixties a friend of mine and I used to go to a restaurant in
West Covina, California, and listen to Teddy Buckner and his band.
I understand he was in the movie, "The Five Penny's", along with Satchmo.
I've mentioned before that I spent 3 nites a week in the Beverly Caverns in
Los Angeles in the late 50's listening to Teddy Buckner. The other 4 nites
I was busy with our "young band" playing at the Roug et Noir in Seal Beach
(the South Frisco).
Teddy was a fantastic horn man, an excellent band leader & entertainer. He
was extremely friendly with everyone around him, including his band members.
Great memories! I picked up a lot of ideas from him, both commercially &
Yes, he was in Five Pennies, and was often used in films when they couldn't
afford Satchmo (Teddy looked a bit like him).
Good to see his name mentioned again.
