THE HAPPY Hayseeds were created by Ivan Laam, standing with fiddle, and his brother Fred Laam, seated with banjo. Fred’s son Logan, standing with guitar, ran the band in the 1940s and 1950s. Steve Olivas is seated at right. This photo was likely taken around 1930, when the band recorded several string band classics for Victor Records. Photo courtesy of Steve Laam
