Who could forget the incredible sounds and imagery of Cab Calloway and his hot jazz orchestra? The whole audience bouncing and swaying to the irresistible rhythm and everybody singing "Hi-De-Ho!" as the king himself, Cab Calloway, jumps, twirls, and signals to the band to begin another joyous chorus.
The Cab Calloway Orchestra has been dazzling audiences since the 1920’s and continues to tour and perform nationally, from the historic jazz club “Birdland” in New York City to venues all over the country. Now under the baton of Cab’s grandson, C. Calloway Brooks, The Cab Calloway Orchestra delivers both the authentic sound of a hot jazz orchestra and a snazzy stage style… bringing out a jump, blues, and boogie experience of "swing that is king and jive that's alive!" With the Calloway band’s original, vintage orchestrations, and musicians who have been playing together for decades, The Cab Calloway Orchestra creates the authentic, unforgettable sensation of a modern jazz orchestra in full flight.
