This chapter describes Sweatman’s career in the 1930s. The demise of two-a-day vaudeville due to the rise of radio and talking films, along with the onset of the Great Depression, spelled unemployment for hundreds of long-established performers. It was a tough time for Sweatman, but, unlike many of his contemporaries, at least he had some income from his music-publishing and band-booking businesses. While these desk-based activities consumed most of his time in the 1930s, he still led pickup bands whenever the opportunity for such work arose.

Keywords:   Wilbur C. Sweatman, African American musicians, music publishing, band booking
