Israelite House of David - Hard To Judge
In retrospect it is hard to judge how important the music of House of David was. The bands played to huge audiences and enthusiastic reviewers across the United States before and during the early days of Jazz. Contemporary accounts consistently describe them as top musicians but while the baseball team's position in history is secure the echo of the road band's music seems to have faded almost as quickly as the bands themselves.
