“Mr. New Year’s Eve” 〜Guy Lombardo

December 31. 2015

There was a rare exhibition at auctionI recently.

“Waldorf-Astoria Starlight Roof Supper Club menu signed inside by Guy Lombardo, printed cover art by Xavier Cugat”

I stayed in the honeymoon in Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

It is written in detail about the Guy Lombardo.

“Guy Lombardo is remembered for almost a half-century of New Year’s Eve big band remotes, first on radio, and then on television. Lombardo’s orchestra played from 1959 until 1976 at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. Live broadcasts (and later telecasts) of their performances were a major part of New Year’s celebrations across North America; millions of people watched the show with friends at house parties. Because of this popularity, Lombardo was called “Mr. New Year’s Eve”.
