 The Schnozz did indeed have a band - this is from the Red Hot Jazz web

"This band was organized by drummer Johnny Stein after Stein's Dixie Jass
Band broke up and became the Original Dixieland Jass Band. It is interesting
to note that Achille Baquet was an African-American, but passed for White
and played for mainly White bands in New Orleans, including Papa Jack
Laine's Reliance Orchestra. His brother George Baquet was a member of the
Original Creole Orchestra and Jelly Roll Morton's Red Hot Peppers. The band
also recorded under the names of the Original New Orleans Jazz Band and New
Orleans Jazz Band."
