The Cab Calloway Orchestra at Benaroya

Tonight I was able to see the Cab Calloway Orchestra, under the direction of Cab Calloway "CB" Brooks, perform at the Benaroya Hall in Seattle. . They put on an amazing show… I have always been a Cab Calloway fan since I saw the movie Cotton Club where they performed his most famous number, ‘Minnie the Moocher’

Before the actual performance, they showed two old Betty Boop cartoons, ‘Snow White’ and ‘The Old Man of the Mountain’ which actually feature Cab Calloways songs… and a couple of his dance moves too..

By the way, Cab Calloway Brooks is actually Cab Calloway’s grandson.
