An interesting group that performed on the WLS Barn Dance.
They could be humorous, then turn right around and do a serious
number with the nicest music you could ever hear. So much of a contrast,
that you may have wondered if they were the same group.
By 1939, they were a seven-piece orchestra. Each was said to be
able to play at least two instruments. Otto was the leader and
really a fine musician, though his comedy act as Little Genevieve
was what he is remembered for most of the time.
