|Title:||Letter: Boston, Massachusetts to Macon, Georgia, possibly 1929 Apr. 3|
|Date:||1929 Apr. 3|
|Description:||Letter from Loyd P. Pinckney, leader of the Boston-based orchestral group Loyd Pinckney's Etheopian Serenaders, to the management of the Douglass Theatre, probably dated April 3, 1929, advertising Pinckney's orchestra. Pinckney indicates his desire to travel to the South to work, and claims that his orchestra can play dance music. He explains that he and his members pay tuition to the New England Conservatory of Music with the money that they receive from playing music. Pinckney asks the management to respond if they think he could be successful at the Douglass Theatre and says he would like to make an appearance for advertising purposes with a five-piece orchestra. Pinckney notes that the orchestra's novelty name is "Loyd Pinckney's 'Etheopean Serenaders'" and suggests that if the management does not believe that the revenue would be large enough to support a five-piece orchestra, he will appear alone. Pinckney asserts that he is a recognized jazz and classical pianist in Boston.|
