Strictly adhering to the principle that dance music, even for broadcasting, should be played in strict dance tempo, Toe Loss has got together, and run for many years, one of the most successful dance combinations in the country. From 1935 to 1940 he played at the Astoria Dance Salon, London, which he left over eighteen months ago to take his band on tour.
During this time he has travelled all over the country, playing not only in theatres and music-halls, but also for dancing in many of the large halls that are now enjoying their greatest boom since the middle nineteen-twenties.
Loss was actually destined for a career in the world of serious music. At the age of 13 he had won a scholarship to Trinity College and studied there for the next three years. Then suddenly he rebelled, and in doing so became the youngest dance-band leader in the country, and the founder of an orchestra that is u popular today as it was eight years ago.
