The idea of a jukebox always made good sense. When people got together to drink, dance, and let their hair down, music was a perfect addition. As a club owner, you only had two options. One was to bring in live musicians. But bringing in small combos to wail or honk their way through a few sets each night was going to take a cut out of your profits, and you also had to deal with the aggravations of hiring live musicians, no matter how good they sounded.
