Biography | show moreshow less
Sammy Kaye (1910-1987) was the leader of one of the most popular "sweet" bands of the big band era. A popular performer on radio and in venues from New York (the Commodore Hotel's Century Room, The Roosevelt Grill, etc.) to the Hollywood Palladium to cities across America, Kaye received his "million dollar tagline", "Swing and Sway With Sammy Kaye", from an announcer at the Cabin Club in Cleveland, Ohio. Kaye was as well known for his audience-participation novelty, "So You Want to Lead a Band?", as he was for his hits, which included "It Isn't Fair", "Daddy", "Room Full of Roses", "Charade" and "Harbor Lights". In addition to being a prolific recording artist for RCA Victor, Columbia and American Decca, Kaye and his band appeared in the films Iceland (1942) and Song of the Open Road (1944), and Kaye wrote songs for 1987's Radio Days.
