wilco 1920 - How common family bands?? (15) RE: 1920 - How common family bands?? 20 Nov 06

I notice that most of the bands on Padre's list were from the southern USA. I wonder if this is a regional phenomenon, since these family bands are very common around here.
    Guest's comments (Scoville...), about streamling to become marketable, suggests two thoughts.
    Many of the "Brother acts" of the 1930 to 1950 period grew out of larger family bands: Louvin , Binks, Bales, Stanley, McGees, etc.
Did they streamline to become marketable or to cut costs?
    Also, who cares if you have a national or regional market? Many of these family bands are very good and entertaining.
