Cab Calloway Orchestra

Shiny instruments all in a row, red-hot lyrics, smooth ensemble work, spicy brass harmonies, a joyful audience bouncing and swaying to irresistible rhythms, and the sound of “Hi Di Ho!” filling theatres on cue: these have been the classic trademarks of concerts by the Cab Calloway Orchestra since the 1920s. These days, under the baton of Cab’s grandson, Calloway Brooks, the Orchestra delivers the same sizzling jazz sound and snazzy stage style of hot Cotton Club music and hijinks, producing the jump, blues, and boogie sounds of swing that is king and jive
that’s alive!
