Blue Barron's rise to fame as a na tionally known radio, recording, movie and dance band maestro dates back 10 October 1936, when the management of the Floating Palace, showboat at Troy, X. Y., engaged the orchestra for a try-out after having played some of the country's biggest name bands. The Barron orchestra made an over night hit at the Floating Pace and remained there for 22 weeks. Next came a 12 weeks engagement at Martin's Paradise Restaurant in Rochester, N. Y., with radio broadcasts, and this was followed by a lengthy stay at the Colvin Gables in Tonawanda, N. Y. From tlhe Colvin Gables, the band went to Cleveland where they scored a great hit at the Southern Tavern with nightly broadcasts. It was the Cleveland engagement that was really the turning point in Blue Barron's career. Executives of the Hotel Edison, New York City, had heard the band broadcasting from Cleveland and after an audition for the New York hotel spot Blue Barron's boys found themselves playing in the exclusive Green Room of the Edison Hotel, just off Broadway. For nine consecutive months Blue Barron was heard nightly over the networks from the Edison Hotel where his popularity increased weekly making. Blue Barron one of the most popular orchestras in the country today. At the conclusion of their nine months engagement at this spot the band was booked on a successful coast to coast tour. Theatres broke all previous records at the box office On their one night engagements the band invariably went into percentage regardless of the guarantees. Blue Barron's popularity continued to grow. In April Blue Barron and His Orchestra returned to the scene of their great success the Green Room of the Edison Hotel, New York City where the management literally had to hold two openings to take care of Blue's fans and well wishers wfoo were on hand to welcome this popular young maestri back to New York.
