Bernie Cummins (1900-1986) was one of the few former boxers ever to lead a big band. He played the drums & had the looks that put his band on the map as early as 1919. His band recorded frequently for such labels as Gennett, Brunswick, Columbia, Victor, Vocalion, Bluebird and Decca. The band was also well noted for their live performances. Among the most important engagements were the Biltmore Hotel in New York, the Hotel New Yorker and the Aragon, Trianon, Blackstone and Edgewater Beach Hotel all in Chicago. Over the years the band also featured Belle Mann, Dorothy Crane and the Sophisticates, and Scottee Marsh. This great record was made in 1929. Delicate vocal by Cummins himself.
