    Cab Calloway Sylvan Gardens Concert Poster (1933). Extremely Rare. Wonderful all action oversized window card poster printed on card stock for a show in Sand Lake, Irish Hills, MI, on Friday July 21. The poster shows an illustration of Cab Calloway in full swing, singing his legendary tag line "Ho De Ho De Ho", announcing "In Person Cab Calloway and his Cotton Club Orchestra". Printed by 'Globe Poster Corp., St Louis, MO.". Measures approximately 22" x 28.2". In Very Good condition with some restoration and touch-ups, particularly a 2" x 4" area to the upper right edge, with touch-ups to lettering, restoration to upper right corner, 2" tear to lower edge, foxing and toning to light areas, ticket price has been changed with white label placed over original price.

    In our opinion, this is the quintessential Calloway concert poster, featuring a classic design, dating from the jazz legend's heyday.
