A Site Dedicated to all enthusiasts of Classic Style Banjo
I wonder has anyone come across the recordings by Olly Oakley's Syncopated Five. Discogs has listed: The Vamp/Arabian Nights and By the Camp Fire/Sand-dunes (1920).
I found a photo of Olly Oakley with his band (ZB, piano, violin, trap drums, saxophone) in the Oct 1922 BMG and this has sparked my curiosity. I have a particular fondness for these early dance bands.
