Glendelles Profile

8 May 2013

Gary Daverne was the music teacher at Auckland's Glendowie College and desperately needed a group of female backing vocalists for his recently formed Viscount Record label, which he moved under the wing of his cousin Eldred Stebbing’s Zodiac label.

After auditioning all of the College’s hopefuls, Daverne chose Susan Redfern, Sharon Swain, Barbara Brown, Louise Girvan and Barbara Stitchbury.
