California Ramblers

A jazz orchestra originally consisting of musicians from the midWest who chose the name "California Ramblers" to perk listeners interest, they first recorded for Vocalion in 1921. The group's manager Ed Kirkeby together with banjoist and founder Ray Kitchenman traveled East and reformed the group. The new band began performing statewide at a string of establishments including their own "Ramblers Inn" in Pelham, New York.

The "Ramblers" were the first pop jazz group and spawned a number of satellite bands such as the "Little Ramblers", the "Five Birmingham Babies", and the "Goofus Five". In addition they also appeared on record frequently throughout the 1920's with varying personnel under numerous pseudonyms including the "Golden Gate Orchestra" the "Varsity Eight", and the "University Six".
