MGM 1929 Sousa Player

I love old musical movies, particularly those with a brass bass. Anyone hazard a guess as to who played Sousaphone in this old MGM classic from 1929?

Almost impossible to know. They gave no credit to anyone other than the composer/lyricist, apparently even the on-screen musicians weren't credited. I was wondering if Whiteman's orchestra could have been involved, but wrong studio and too early. Whiteman took his guys out there in late June 1929, intending to work on "The Jazz Singer" for Universal, but nothing happened for quite a while.
