[Photograph of Laboratory Dance Band Performing with a Harpist]

Description:

Photograph of the Laboratory Dance Band performing on stage with a woman named Pat McCracken playing a harp. McCracken occupies the lower center portion of the photo. She is wearing a light hued dress and is sitting down behind a microphone. Her hands are mid-glide over the harp's strings. To her left, one of the many tuxedo-clad men plays a double bass. To the left of this man, another man sits with his back to the camera and plays a piano. The rest of the band is seated on a series of three increasingly elevated platforms. They are holding a variety of brass instruments and, in the case of one man at the left end of the topmost row, playing at a drum set.
