Five Masqueraders, Masquerades

Many sources connect the Five Masqueraders to the Masquerades with Seaphus Scott being the same person as Howard Scott.  History searches for both groups and their members yielded repeated information.  Confirming documentation is still needed.

    • Thanks for your comment. As/the book, the Five Masqueraders and Masquerades/Masquarades are connected. Other than the repeated info I found on discographies, I was hoping other documentation existed that confirmed ’Seaphus’ was Howard Scott’s middle name.

      There are a few corrections and additions to the post.
