“Texas Tommy Dancers”

The act was seven minutes long on the full stage. These dancers are the original “Texas Tommy Dancers” from the Barbary Coast. They wear cowboy and cowgirl costumes and play brass instruments and drums as they dance. One number is similar to “Apache” dances which are familiar to New York vaudeville.
Although this group is the originator of this style of dance and clearly works hard onstage, its imitators have beaten it to the New York stage. That said, audiences have already seen this type of act too many times for it to be interesting. They may have been a hit in the Far West a few years ago, but they lack the sensation they once held for New York.
