Red Nichols and Miff Mole became a fixture in New York’s jazz scene, recording frequently with a regular band that included Jimmy Dorsey, Artie Schutt and Vic Berton. On Brunswick, the band was christened Red Nichols and his Five Pennies, a name that stuck with Nichols throughout his recording career regardless of the actual number of musicians in the band. On Columbia the band was given a standard house band pseudonym The Charleston Chasers. On Columbia’s budget Harmony label the band was The Arkansas Travellers. On the Perfect label they were The Red Heads. On the OKeh label they were Miff Mole and his Little Molers. When they recorded for Edison or Victor they were Red and Miff’s Stompers.
