Yackley & Bunnell

Musical and comedy act by two men. A very good three-show-a-day turn. One of the men makes up straight [sic] and the other in blackface. The comedy while not being particularly strong is still pleasing and the music is really good. The feature of the act is [B]unnell’s playing on ordinary bottles which he accomplishes in a novel way, having a metal hammer on each finger and playing them …. After the same style that one would play a banjo. Made quit[e] a hit. 16 minutes; full stage, closing in one.
