Nat (Nathanael) Gonella (07.03.1908 - 1998)

Musiker (trumpet), orkesterledare och sångare från Storbritannien. Född och uppväxt i London. Spelade i de flesta stora brittiska dansbanden i mellankrigstiden. Bildade i slutet av 1930-talet sin egen orkester "Nat Gonella and his Georgians" som blev väldigt uppskattad och besökte Sverige vid flera tillfällen, bl.a. vårvintern 1946. Orkestern gjorde också några skivinspelningar i Sverige och turnerade med Thore Jederbys band 1947 under namnet Nat Gonella and his Swedish Georgians. Han drog sig tillbaka på 1970-talet och avled i Gosport 1998.
