Ellis Brooks 
Last updated: 17.10.18
Ellis Brooks is another of those obscure ragtime era composers known only for a single published work, in this case a rag two-step entitled A Florida Cracker (1899) published by S. Brainard's Sons Co. Chicago, Illinois. From the original sheet music we learn that he was the conductor of Brooks Band and on the front cover he is shown in smart attire as a stern, heavily moustachioed and bespectacled bands-man.
