Hit of the week Orchestra

The Hit of the week Orchestra, responsable for a lot of Durium recordings for the Hit of the week label was a studio orchestra made up of white New York musicians. It is unknown what musicians played exactly during each individual recording session, but a list of names of musicians that participated in that band has been compiled.

We don't have any pictures or films from that band so far. I found a short from a band, named Captiolians, directed by Walt Roesner, in 1928 that might have several members of the Hit of the week Orchestra. If not, it is a good example, how these bands performed in those days.
Enjoy it.
