Delmar Porter, who sang with the Foursome -- a vocal and ocarina quartet Jones had backed on Decca Records -- was Jones' partner in musical mayhem from the outset. Porter led a six-piece group Im Going Back To Where I Came From - Spike Jones And His City Slickers - Strictly For Music Lovers (CD) the Feather Merchants, which was managed by Jones before it gradually evolved into the City Slickers.
Few musicians took Jones and Porter seriously when they started the band. It was no more than a spare time proposition, and many of them -- who had steady work in radio -- departed after a rehearsal or two. The precise evolution of the band, which consisted of various studio musicians of Spike's and Im Going Back To Where I Came From - Spike Jones And His City Slickers - Strictly For Music Lovers (CD) acquaintance, is unclear.
Adding to the puzzle is the existence of a concurrent Jones band which made experimental "penny records" for the short-lived Cinematone Corporation. Jones was not officially the leader of the City Slickers -- nor had the group yet adopted the name -- when they entered Victor studios for the first time in Within a year of their first Victor session, most of the sidemen involved -- including Botkin, Jackson, Wrightsman, and bassist Hank Stern -- departed for greener pastures.
Porter and violinist Carl "Donald" Grayson were the exceptions. Botkin, who was too busy with radio work, brought Luther Roundtree in to replace him on banjo. Wrightsman, an ace jazz pianist who didn't care for the Slickers' slam-bang style, gave his seat behind the keyboard to Frank Leithner, who played The Eddie Cantor Show with Spike.
Jackson left to enlist in the army and was replaced by trombonist John Stanley. Hank Stern's successor on tuba and string bass was a man of almost limitless talent. Joe "Country" Washburne, a first-rate jazz musician who had performed with Ted Weems, eventually took over most of the arranging duties from Porter. In doing so, he became a major influence on the Slickers in their evolution from a pleasantly silly cornball style to the riotous, all-stops-out zaniness that put them over the top.
Ernest "Red" Ingle, a colleague of Washburne's from the Weems band, was more than capable on the saxophone; he was hired less for his musical skills than his comic genius. Along with Carl Grayson, Jones came to rely heavily on Ingle for the gags and vocal effects used to annihilate the songs. Many of the early Slickers left the band because they could not accommodate Jones' demand for "first call" on their availability.
