Millward was the leader of The Nitwits, a band that played unusual versions of classic songs, usually in a humorous way.

He was raised in the East End but left school in his teens to play music. By 1936 he was one of the top saxophonists in the country and his new band debuted in 1937 at the Paramount Cinema. At this time they played the music in a more traditional way with Sid doubling on clarinet.

During the war he was the bandleader at London's Cafe Anglais. Read more...
