The Columbia Saxophone Sextette was a group organized by Harry A. Yerkes probably in an attempt to cash in on the success of the Six Brown Brothers. Ads in Variety magazine in 1921 announced that Broadway's Saxo-Harmonist's were formerly know as the Columbia Saxophone Sextette and listed their business manager as Fred Blondel. The band was playing a six month engagement at Ike Bloom's Mid-Nite Frolic in Chicago at that time.
