Popular bandleader GUY LOMBARDO (1902-1977) played "the sweetest music this side of heaven" His band, Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians, formed in 1924, with brothers VICTOR and Lebert Lombardo as original members. Guy, a violinist, soon concentrated on conducting. CARMEN, a saxophonist, joined the group soon after. Louis Armstrong called the group, which sold over 100 million records between 1927 and 1954, his favorite band. Known for his traditional New Year's Eve musical program, which ran from 1929 through 1976, first on the radio then on TV, Guy was an avid speed-boat racer and was the national champion from 1946-1949. According to the collector's notations on the reverse, the signatures were obtained at Paramount's stage door on May 1, 1936. Light corner creases. Scattered light surface impressions.
