"The Casa Loma Stomp" by The Casa Loma Orchestra

LISTEN: "The Casa Loma Stomp" by The Casa Loma Orchestra

1930s swing music

By 1927, when The Orange Blossoms started an eight month stint as the house band at Casa Loma, they had already featured an impressive line-up of musicians over the years — including the Dorsey brothers and the alcoholic trumpet genius Bix Beiderbecke. But it wasn't until after their time at the then-classy-hotel-and-nightspot now-cheesy-tourist-trap that they changed their name to The Casa Loma Orchestra and went on to become one of the most popular swing bands in North America. Their biggest hits included "No Name Jive", "Maniac's Ball" and "The Casa Loma Stomp". They would stay together in one form or another for decades to come; they didn't break up until 1963.
