"Put On A Happy Face"

Roger Smith said...

When I see this one, I have to ask--Did the Front End really make the band put on clown makeup and expect them to look happy about it? Staged clown bands on a parade wagon were part of clowning, but if this is the show band, where was their shop steward?

Back around World War I, there was a saxophone group called THE SIX BROWN BROTHERS that wore clown makeup. Although they appeared with circuses when they first got their start, they appeared mostly in vaudeville and an occasional Broadway review. They also recorded for Victor.
