In 1926, Theo Uden Masman joined The Resonance Seven and changed its name to 'The Original Ramblers Dance Orchestra'. The band debuted in The Hague on September 1, 1926. After touring Holland and Germany, further engagements abroad followed and from 1932 onwards the band played 7 years at the Casino Hamdorff, a popular resort in Laren (near Amsterdam). The band was expanded to 11 in 1937. The orchestra enjoyed undiminished popularity until the early 50s. However, towards the end of the decade popular enthusiasm gradually diminished and although its 30th Anniversary in 1956 was celebrated in style, recording sessions and live performances became rare. Masman, after having suffered a stroke, when VARA Radio decided to break up the band in 1964, Masman, disappointed, gave in. A year later he died. In the early 70s The Ramblers were brought to life. The band still exists today and holds the record as the longest-lived jazz band of the world. This great record was made in 1933.

Thanks a lot for your appreciation Jack! Thank you as well for sending me the link about copyright, which I've found in my inbox today :-) I hadn't been on the site for several days either and found 90 spam comments! It took a while to clean those out

So welcome Walter! Thanks so much for leaving this highly appreciative comment. The site seems quite deserted lately. Your comment certainly makes up for it :-)
