Song #14: Mr. Ghost Goes to Town-The 5 Jones Boys

5jonesboys

Released in 1937, The 5 Jones Boys were Jimmy Springs (lead tenor vocals), William Hartley, Herman Wood, Louis Wood, Charles Hopkins. There is not a lot to report about this band. From Carbondale, Illinois, they seemed to have only existed for only a few years. They toured with Duke Ellington and appeared many times on the popular radio program, The Laff Parade.  Great song; fun, spooky, and talented.
