between the years 1929 & 1937 several different chicago-based blues/jazz ensembles made records as the hokum boys.

the word ‘hokum’ is believed to have descended from the english term ‘hokey-pokey’, denoting both ridicule & the ridiculous. hokum can mean flattery, insincerity, derision, deception, nonsense, cheapness, or any sort of stage gimmickry used to elicit a response from jaded audiences.
