VIP Night Soiree

Dress dapper at VIP Night for MDPL Members— featuring The Cab Calloway Orchestra, swing dance performances, mini dance lessons, and more!

Get ready for a high-energy, joyous, and soulful performance ignited with audience participation! The Cab Calloway Orchestra, directed by Cab’s first-born grandson, “The Prince of Hi De Ho,” C. Calloway Brooks, comes from the Big Band Swing Jazz Orchestra style that came bursting out of the Cotton Club and Savoy Ballroom in the Harlem Renaissance during the golden age of radio in the 1930s and 1940s.

Growing directly out of the Louis Armstrong New Orleans Dixieland tradition, Cab Calloway and his Orchestras virtually wrote the book on the “Hot Swing” sound and the “Jump” genre, including a featured progressive approach to performance. 

Every day Brooks carries on the tradition of American big band music. The Cab Calloway Orchestra’s goal under C. Calloway Brooks is to expand the recognition and appreciation of its unique sound and sensibility while maintaining the integrity of Cab’s amazing musical repertoire. They want to make sure that you “keep that Hi-De-Ho in your soul!”
