Additional Information: 

Husk O’ Hare was a Chicago band leader in the 1920s.  In addition to leading his own bands, O’Hare also booked other bands all over Illinois and neighboring states.  He promoted his business and his bands vigorously and rented a flashing sign on top of the building where his offices were located.  O’Hare’s own bands were house bands at hotels and radio stations, which could explain the “every week” reference on the button.  These bookings would have followed a regular schedule, which allowed O’Hare to run his booking business when he was not performing.
