Howard Fredericks Band

Happy New Year to you all. Recently my 89 year old father in law passed away, and while looking through this wonderful man's photo archieves of his musical past, we came across photos of him on the bandstand as a trombone player for The Howard Frederick (s) Band. Location was San Francisco, approx time was WWII. Does anyone know of this band? Any feedback you can give us would be of great meaning for his daughter, my wife, who understandably is now "discovering" her Dad, now that he has passed.

Best regards.
