Husk O’Hare Super Orchestra In Milwaukee 1923

Anderson “Husk” O’Hare was born in Chicago in 1890, and became a booking agent  for bands during the 1920’s. He led his own “Super” orchestra, which recorded for Gennett in 1922. Husk O’Hare is probably best known for his association with the Friar’s Society Orchestra, and thereafter, the New Orleans Rhythm Kings. In 1923 his orchestra was on tour in Milwaukee, and would perform at the Riverview Ballroom. The publicity for the event was advertised in the Milwaukee Journal on February 4th.
