Bob Haring

(1896 - ? )

Born in the New York area sometime during 1896 Bob Haring was a bandleader and arranger who began his illustrious recording career in 1922 as the musical director for the newly established Cameo Records. Cranking out dance hits under pseudonyms including the "Lincoln Dance Orchestra", "The Caroliners", the "Society Night Club Orchestra", and "King Solomon and His Miners" he became an overnight success. Haring signed a contract with Brunswick Records in 1925 and made his debut for the label as leader of the "Regent Club Orchestra" an assemble that focused mainly on waltzes in May of that year. In May of the following year he began leading what would be mainly a fox trot assembly known as the "Colonial Club Orchestra" and that July appeared on record for the label for the first time under his own name.

In the Spring of 1929 Bob Haring was promoted to the position of Brunswick's musical director for their New York City location. He continued to work there even after Warner Brothers bought the company in April 1930 but was terminated when his contract was not renewed in March 1931. Haring continued to record for dime store labels like Banner, Oriole, Perfect, Romeo through July 1931 and would lead and arrange for radio orchestras until around 1935 when changing musical tastes of the Swing era forced him out. Over the course of his career Bob Haring was directly responsible for the production of a mind boggling number of dance records.
