[Handbill]: ex-tra! ex-TRA! EXTRA! Two Colored Bands Combined. Next Saturday Night! WHOOPEE!! [verso]: The Monster Ninth Annual Moonlight , Shadow & Frolic Dance... Music furnished by Two Colored Bands Combined! Jackson's Original Monarch Colored Melodians & Red Hot Jazz Kings—Pride of Harlem

West New York, New Jersey: River Front A.C. Inc., 1929.

Price: $275.00

Unbound. Double-sided handbill. Measuring 9" x 6". Small nick and some soiling in the upper margin on the verso, very good. Also contains the lyrics for three songs: *Ain't Misbehavin'*, *Pagan Love Song*, and *Am I Blue?* The handbill advertises Continuous Dancing, Confetti, Streamers & Other Novelties, and a Silver Loving Cup: a very Jazz Age event! West New York is just across the river from Midtown Manhattan. Curiously we could find no credible mention of either of the two bands under those particular names. Presumably they were impromptu bands gather together for the event.
