Bandleader, singer, songwriter
Cab Calloway — the legendary “Hi De Ho” man — was an energetic showman, gifted singer, talented actor and trendsetter. A truly “larger than life” figure in American pop culture, immortalized in cartoons and caricatures, Calloway also led one of the greatest bands of the Swing Era. The middle-class Calloway family hoped their son would become a lawyer like his father., but young boy wanted to be an entertainer. Cab did attend law school in Chicago, however when he he met trumpeter Louis Armstrong, he decided to become a musician.
