This image scanned from page 6 of the Saturday May 10, 1924 edition of The Indiana Daily Student.

According to Phillip R. and Linda K. Evans in their book "Bix: The Leon Bix Beiderbecke Story" this particular dance was played by The Wolverines and Bix Beiderbecke. However, this advertisement seems to refute that claim. It should also be noted that their book claims the advertisement they are citing appears on page 5, however pages 4 and 5 of the May 10, 1924 edition solely consist of a Paramount Pictures and Indiana Theater advertisement for a contest.
