This chapter is about the start of the Jazz Age and the dance band era. Music contractor Ed Kirkeby played a major role and gained experience in the music industry, a.o. with a job at Columbia Records and as an artist's representative. His breakthrough came in 1922 when he managed a band called the California Ramblers. This band worked in vaudeville in an act with soprano Eva Shirley. When its personnel walked out, Kirkeby had to find new men, which offered himthe opportunity to hire top quality men. One of these men was Adrian Rollini, who played xylophone and piano.
