Casa Loma Jazz Band - Washboard Wiggles

Considered to be the first swing band in the United States, the Casa Loma Orchestra got its start in Detroit as Jean Goldkette and the Orange Blossoms.

In 1929 the band was scheduled to play at the exclusive Casa Loma, a new club in Toronto.

Later that year, the band adopted the club's name and set up a corporation, becoming the first cooperative band of its kind.

After playing at prestigious venues like New York's Roseland Ballroom and the Glen Island Casino, the Orchestra appeared on the "Camel Caravan" (1933), the first radio commercial series to feature a swing band.

After recording for Okeh Records, the Orchestra signed with Brunswick, then simultaneously with RCA Victor, recording under the names Casa Loma Orchestra and Glen Gray Orchestra, respectively.

Eventually, the band recorded exclusively for Brunswick, then Decca, under the name Glen Gray and the Casa Loma Orchestra.

Glen Gray, a saxophonist, began fronting the band in 1937 and remained its leader until the group disbanded in 1950.

In 1956 Gray came out of retirement to record a popular series of phonograph records for Capitol Records, "Sounds of the Great Bands." He died in Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1963.
