Our Patron, "FRANK HOLDER" (2 April 1925 – 29 October 2017) was a Guyanese jazz singer and percussionist. He was a member of bands led by Jiver HutchinsonJohnny Dankworth, and Joe Harriott.

Frank Holder, who has died aged 92, forged a lengthy career on the Londonj azz scene that encompassed everything from singing with big-name bands to solo appearances on cabaret and supper club circuits. Along the way he taught himself to play the conga drums and bongos, adding his percussive skills to jazz rhythm sections and later functioning as a kind of one-man variety act, incorporating a few dance steps and always singing with sensitivity and gusto.
