The Golden Gate Orchestra was a pseudonym to the well established California Ramblers who were a popular and prolific jazz group from the 1920s, that recorded hundreds of songs under many different record labels throughout the 1920s. Three of the members of the band, Red Nichols, Jimmy Dorsey, and Tommy Dorsey, would go on to front big bands in later decades. The original bandmembers were from Ohio, but chose the name California Ramblers because they thought people would be less inclined to listen to a jazz band from the Midwest. They recorded for nearly every independent label in the U.S., Canada and the U.K., using over 100 unique aliases. This excellent record was made in 1925. Vocal by Hall and Ryan.


Definitely this song very well epitomizes the roaring 20's doesn't it :-)

If the 1920s had a "national anthem" this song would be a top contender.

Thank you Genia, this is one of my oldest videos, but totally reworked with better sound and that gorgeous poster I'm just as fond of as you are. Lou has recently posted another version, but I still prefer this one with those funny vocalists adding to the vaudeville atmosphere.
