Ken Mackintosh - Band Leader and Star of the Fifties (This obituary first appeared in the "Yorkshire Post" on Saturday December 3, 2005).

It is with sadness I report on the passing of Ken Mackintosh, one of the most popular Band leaders in the 1950's.

Ken and his Band played in the Villa Marina Dance Hall, Isle of Man, for the evening dancing session,
when Ivy and her Girls played the Gardens for the afternoon sessions, Coffee mornings and "Teen Beat" sessions.

Many of Ivy's Girls from that time will have great memories of Ken and his Boys.
