You won’t forget it: those smooth shiny instruments all in a row, the soloist singing and playing their hearts out, the silky smooth ensemble passagework, those spicy brass harmonies, the whole room bouncing and swaying to the irresistible rhythm, everybody singing “HI DE HO!”…. It must be The Cab Calloway Orchestra, now under the Baton of Cab’s Grandson: Calloway Brooks.
The Calloway family has been dazzling audiences since the 1920’s and this year is no exception. Calloway Brooks, along with the Cab Calloway Orchestra deliver 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”.
Using the Calloway bands original vintage orchestrations as a starting point, coupled with the awesome musicians who have played with this big band for decades, The Cab Calloway Orchestra creates the authentic unforgettable sensation of a Modem Jazz Orchestra in full flight. So if you want to Swing Swing Swing, and every other thing, strap on your Zoot suit with the reet pleet and bring that Cotton Club brand of hot sophistication and the REAL Minnie The Moocher to your stage!
