Trevor Mac, the drummer on this track by Teddy Weatherford and his Band, was born Trevor MacCabe to an Irish father and a Portuguese mother. He began his career in 1924 as a drummer with a stage show in the UK called Mr Tower of London, but seems to have moved to Bombay by 1929, where he played at Cornaglia’s restaurant in the Fort.
He soon adopted the name Trevor Mac and his first band was called Mac and His Melody Makers. He would later take his musicians on the road to Burma and other parts of South East Asia, where they would perform as Trevor Mac and His Ambassadors.
The 1930s found Trevor Mac in Bangkok, where he married a Thai girl. But he continued to spend holidays in Bombay, and would perform occasionally with the Anglo-Indian bandleader Ken Mac.
This track is from the Marco Pacci collection. It was made in 1941 and features Buddy Spencer on vocals.
