The most important credit for this website goes to Chris Barber himself, the members of the Big Chris Barber Band, and the other thirty or so people who have been members of the Chris Barber Band from the days of Ken Colyer's Jazzmen in 1953-54, and even before that. Without them there would not have been more than fifty years of great music to enjoy!
