Jan Garber (born Jacob Charles Garber, November 5, 1894 – October 5, 1977) was an American violinist and jazz bandleader. Garber was born in Indianapolis, Indiana. He had his own band by the time he was 21. He became known as "The Idol of the Airwaves" in his heyday of the 1920s and 1930s, playing jazz in the vein of contemporaries such as Guy Lombardo.
Garber began playing the violin in the "Philadelphia Orchestra". In 1921 he formed "The Garber-Davis Orchestra" (with pianist Milton Davis). In Groups: Jan Garber And His Orchestra. Variations: Viewing All Jan Garber. Garber, J. Garber, Jan. The Fabulous Dance Band Of Jan Garber, The Wonderful World Of Jan Garber (Comp). The Good Music Record Co.
Jan's greatest popularity surfaced in early 1933, shortly after he took over leadership of the 'Little Freddie Large Orchestra' from Canada. With Freddie's unique lead alto saxophone captivating radio listeners from Cincinnati to Catalina Island, the Garber Band - with a sound like Lombardo but lots peppier - became an overnight sensation at Chicago's famed Trianon Ballroom. A year later, it was solidly entrenched among the most popular dance groups in the entire country
