Biography: 

Readers never see the band that plays in the traveling show visiting Jefferson, but several of the novel's black characters talk about it, and in Jason's section both he and Uncle Job hear the music they are making. "That's a good band," Job says (248); "Dem folks sho do play dem horns" (230). Jason refers to the show's performers as "a bunch of Yankees" (230), but there's no clear evidence that they come from the North.
