Estate Auction Inc. will roll out the red carpet for Old Hollywood starting November 25, 2014. You can be part of the Cab Calloway legacy, and be part of his history. To be part of Cab Calloway’s legacy would be pretty great considering he was a spirited showman, extraordinary singer, talented actor and trendsetting fashion plate. A truly larger than life figure in American pop culture.
