Anton Lada was the drummer in an early version of the Original Dixieland Jass Band in New Orleans sometime about 1913 to 1914. He is best remembered today as the manager and drummer of the Louisiana Five. He seems to have formed Lada's Louisiana Orchestra after the break-up of the Louisiana Five. Records by this band were labeled Lada's Louisiana Orchestra and Lada's Orchestra. Lada relocated to California in the mid-1920s and then recorded under the name of Anton Lada's Louisiana Lads for the Sunset label.
