You bet the band was spiffied up to a T. Every band, in those days, wore a uniform, of sorts, mostly tuxedos or business suits that matched, ties issued by the band leader and so on. Clyde Trask is easy to spot because he was something like six feet, 22 inches tall, but the entire band wore clothing to match his.
That little vest-pocket-sized singer may be Thelma Staton. She later became a comedienne and singer in a movie or two, if I am not mistaken.
