Dick Himber and His Essex House Orchestra on Spotify
Richard Himber 20 February — 11 December was an American bandleader, composer, violinist, magician and practical joker. His parents gave him violin lessons, but when they found him performing in a seedy Newark dive, they took the instrument away from him and sent him to military school. In , he stole away into New York City , where Sophie Tucker heard him play and hired him as a novelty act to play with her and the Five Kings of Syncopation where Himber was the highlight of the cabaret act. He worked his way through Vaudeville and down Tin Pan Alley. He managed Rudy Vallee 's orchestra service, which sent out bands for private parties and society functions.
