Embarking on his professional drum career during the Summer of 1923 as a member of the "Ole Miss Jesters" Snooks Friedman gained a considerable amount of experience on the road with touring bands before returning to Memphis in 1926 where he organized his "Memphis Stompers". Originally a sextet this extremely versatile group of musicians equally capable of providing both hot jazz and dance music had expanded to include ten pieces by the time they relocated to New York late in 1928.
