THE HOOSIER HOT SHOTS
Photograph of the comedic 1930's band picturing Hezzie, Ken, Gabe, and Gil, signed with sincere wishes of health and happiness by one of the members (dated 1946). Extremely rare!
Inscribed photograph signed: "Our Sincere Wishes to Inez/for Health +Happiness/The Hoosier Hot Shots/11-27-46", in blue ink, Sepia toned 8¼x10. The Hoosier Hot Shots were an American group of musicians who could be described as a mix of swing, jazz, pop, but always showed a good time with their comedic stylings and vaudeville roots, becoming one of the most recognizable names on records, radio, and film in the 1930's and 1940's. Formed by brothers Ken and Paul (Hezzie) Trietsch, the group was originally a family act with their father, but ultimately broke up with the sons performing together in vaudeville. When the roaring '20s ended, they moved into radio, having added "Gabe" Hawkins by this time, and found success with novelty songs like "I Like Bananas (Because They Have No Bones)" and "From the Indies to the Andes in His Undies". Bass fiddler Frank Delaney Kettering (later replaced by Gil Taylor) was added in 1934 and the Hot Shots went on to perform as a quartet for countless radio programs and television productions, and appeared in films alongside Gene Autry, Dale Evans, Bob Wills, and Merle Travis. Even after the groups popularity faded in the 1960's they continued to perform in some form until Gabe Ward, the last Hoosier Hot Shot, died in 1992. Corners lightly worn and creased. Tear on top margin. Edges slightly creased and worn. Lightly soiled on outer margins. Surface creases and dents (not seen head on). Faint stain to bottom left of inscription. Ink stamps on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
