‘A First Class English Band at Prince’s.
‘The Revilos, who came to the fore at our ”Tango Ball” [in May 1922], are now playing at Prince’s [sic]. They have a first class combination, including two French horns, and are featuring the Lawrence Wright productions, especially ”Caravan” [a fox-trot by Gene McCarthy and Gene Williams]. As will be seen from the photograph [above], they can put their usual instruments on one side and give a delightful Hawaiian interlude.’
