Description

The guy in question was a pianist named Art Bronson, and the six-piece band he was seeking to enlarge was known as the Bostonians. Since it came originally from Denver, Colorado, was now based in Salina, Kansas, and had no known connection with Boston or New England, the reason for its name remains a mystery.
