The Kilduff’s Red Devils were a jazz band in Baltimore, Maryland which were formed by my Grandfather, John H. Kilduff, back in the 1920’s to about the 1940’s. The band went by several different names over the years, and the chief promoter of the band was my grandfather, who appeared to have a new business card for every name change.
Even the sheet music which they played had his personal touch. I have been digging up all types of programs for the band, and whatever I find I will post it here.
The band went by several names, and played from about the 1920’s to the 1940’s,from what I can tell. Just about any promotional item John Kilduff put together for the band he saved.

Over the years, I have been able to find lots of neat things about my grandfather. He collected all sorts of things, and one thing I found was a collection of old 1920’s jazz posters. See Link here.
