Bob Crosby and his Orchestra
Playing in Chicago
(Relayed in collaboration with the Columbia Broadcasting System)
Brother of the celebrated Bing, Bob Crosby will lead his orchestra in tonight's broadcast from Chicago. Although only twenty-five years of age, and despite what he declares to be the great handicap of a famous brother, Bob Crosby has already risen high in a country where good dance bands are, so to speak, ten a penny. With his orchestra Crosby has made innumerable tours throughout the United States and played in most of the famous resorts. Included in his band are such figures as ' Nappy ' LaMare, one of the finest guitar players in the world ; Ray Baudac , who has been jazz drumming since 1916 ; and Marian Mann , famous throughout the United States as a band vocalist.
