Roney's Boys is considered the first ever band button circa 1901

From 1888 to 1913, the charismatic Professor Henry B. Roney helped over 10,000 wayward Chicago boys find the path to righteousness through the rigorous practice of hymns.

In doing so, he created an extremely popular touring boys choir that played across the country– from small backwoods towns to bustling major cities– and in any venue, from jailhouses to Teddy Roosevelt’s White House.

In 1901, Roney’s Boys were the first band known to promote themselves with buttons! Check out an original Roney’s Boys button at the new Busy Beaver Button Co. Museum on Friday, September 10 and click here for the invite.
