    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The January 12, 1951 issue of Down Beat magazine had an article on the show entitled "Many Contribute to Success of 'Cavalcade of Bands' TVer." by Ria Niccoli. In the article Associate Producer Henri Gine described some things about the show: "There must be plenty of sections playing since the cameras have to keep changing pace to maintain audience interest. No camera shots last longer than 10 to 12 seconds, and great emphasis is placed on closeups. Musicians must keep their eyes on the leader at all times, and when a soloist goes up to do his stint, he must have memorized it, because if he looks at the music he appears to the viewers to be asleep. The band's seating is tricky, since the sections have to be slightly separated for easy photography, and yet appear together. And finally, the boys of the aggregation must never, never look bored or lackadaisical."
        Gine also had advice for musicians appearing on the show: "if you're a musician making your first video appearance, don't polish your horn; don't wear a tie clasp; don't wear a gold watchband if you're doing a solo, and do wear a solid color tie."
