Kirkeby develops the concept of the "band-within-a-band" andin 1923 the first recordings by the Varsity Eight, a small unit from the California Ramblers are made. The full band also debuts on radio that year and on one occasion, Rollini recorded with saxophone virtuoso Rudy Wiedoeft. Engagements by the full band include the annual dance of the Talking Machine Men aswell as a charity event at the Roseland and a grand re-opening of the massive Hippodrome Theatre. At the start of 1924, the California Ramblers Inn was refreshed with new drapes and carpets to be ready for guests during the hot summer.
