We're off doon the watter for a riverboat shuffle with Glasgow's young jazz fans.

The band, The Steadfast Jazz Band, was formed by Parkhead lad Bill Bain. A keen musician, Bill learned his chops playing bugle in the Boys' Brigade. When he heard trad jazz, and picked up a bass, he never looked back, even borrowing the 'Steadfast' name from the BB motto.

The Steadfasts were regulars at the Prince of Wales Halls at 350 Sauchiehall Street, the Riverside Club on Maxwell Street and the adjacent Iona Community Centre on the banks of the Clyde.

No date to this picture, although it must be pre-1959, as that's when Bill hit the big time, joining The Clyde Valley Stompers.

In this picture, we're tied-up on the south bank of the river, looking across to the Clyde Navigation Trust building
