San Francisco bandleader Art Hickman was enjoying considerable success in New York with his Art Hickman Orchestra in 1921 when he was offered an engagement in London, England by band booker Harry Yerkes . Hickman's Orchestra couldn't make the trip because they were providing the music for Ziegfeld's Follies, but Hickman allowed Yerkes to use his name and Yerkes assembled a group of musicians to perform under the name of Art Hickman's New York London Five. This band played at the Criterion Roof Garden in London from 1920 and 1921 according to Mark Berresford.
