ODJB billed itself as the Creators of Jazz, because it was the first band to record jazz commercially and to have hit recordings in the new genre. Band leader and trumpeter Nick LaRocca (composer of "Tiger Rag") argued that ODJB deserved recognition as the first band to record jazz commercially and the first band to establish jazz as a musical idiom or genre.
Friar's Society Orchestra: In 1920, Paul Mares and George Brunies were working on the Mississippi riverboat S.S. Capitol when it stopped in Davenport, Iowa, where they teamed with Leon Roppolo on clarinet. They eventually added Elmer Schobel on piano, Frank Snyder on drums, Alfred Loyacano on bass and Louis Black played banjo. They got a gig at the Friar's Club in Chicago in 1922. At first they called themselves The Friar's Society Orchestra, after the club the Friars Inn at 1834 Wabash Street at Van Buren in Chicago, but they changed their name to The New Orleans Rhythm Kings in 1923 after losing that gig.
Johnny Bayersdorffer was a popular bandleader at the Spanish Fort resort on Bayou St. John by Lake Pontchartrain. He is best remembered to later generations for his 1920s recordings for Okeh Records. Bayersdorffer also played with Happy Schilling and Tony Parenti's bands.
