Biografia

“Les Brown and the Band of Renown” brought Doris Day into prominence with their recording of “Sentimental Journey” in 1945. The release of “Sentimental Journey” coincided with the end of WWII in Europe and was the homecoming theme for many veterans. They had nine other number-one hit songs, including “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm.”

Les Brown and the Band of Renown performed with Bob Hope on radio, stage and TV for almost fifty years. They did 18 USO Tours for American troops around the world, and entertained over three million. Before the Super Bowls were televised, the Bob Hope Christmas Specials were the highest-rated programs in television history. Tony Bennett was “discovered” by Bob Hope and did his first public performance with Les and the Band.

The first feature length film that Les and the band apperared in, was the war-time movie “Seven Days Leave” starring Victor Mature and Lucille Ball. “Rock-A-Billy Baby”, a low budget 1957 film, was the Band of Renown’s second movie and in 1963, they appeared in Jerry Lewis’ comedy The Nutty Professor.

Les Brown and the Band were also the ‘house band’ for the Dean Martin Variety Show, which ran for ten seasons, and for the Steve Allen show.

Les Brown and the Band of Renown performed with virtually every major performer of their time, including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Nat “King” Cole.
