Denton Park

’58 Kerkrade


Meet some of the ’50s boys from the Vancouver Boys’ Band. Listen to them talk about their days in the band and Arthur Delamont’s influence on their lives and on generations of Vancouver’s youth. The lessons they learned while in the band were far more than musical. They had to do with management skills, deportment, discipline, team work, standing on your own two feet, representing others, performance skills, programming and showmanship. They learned what it meant to live a competitive lifestyle and to strive to be in the top one percent. “Do the best you can each day and don’t settle for second best,” he would say! “Nobody remembers the also ran! You either win or you lose!”

Some of the interviews are done posthumously, as one boy reflects
on some of the others who have passed away. The interviews offer
some insight into what it was like to have been a member of “The
Worlds Most Famous Boys Band,” a true Canadian success story. The stories they tell run the range of emotions from the humorous, to
the serious, to scary, to loving, to surprising but always from the heart.
The boys went on to become doctors, lawyers, accountants, civil
servants, engineers, teachers, scientists, composers and writers and
are today, twenty-five years after his death, the Legacy of Arthur
