San Francisco Minstrels Hall
6 June 2020
“‘Hash’ is the savory title of the new burnt cork extravaganza to be brought out at the hall of the San Francisco Minstrels next week. It will contain a little of everything musical, including ‘Shoo, Fly.’”
“Abundance of amusement is offered by the San Francisco Minstrels, and we are pleased to observe that it is not offered in vain.” Notes Hash.
Notes that Hash is a “regular olla podrida of nonsense, twenty minutes being occupied by those engaged in it having a lot of fun among themselves, with a boxing match, upsetting one another, and the development of a few tricks, two or three of which are cleverly done… Previous to the pantomime David Wambold and Ira Paine sang ‘The Daisy Valley’ and ‘When You and I were Young, Maggie,’ both of whom were most deservedly encored. In the olio Johnny Queen and Billy West do the ‘Shoo Fly’ very well, and Bobby Newcomb’s songs and dances, and his imitations of Lisa Weber, Irma and Lotta, took well. There was a falling off in the attendance the past week.”
