Legends of the Rain Bo Room: Jack "Legs" Diamond

In the late 1920's, when prohibition was in full swing - the city was bustling with gangsters including Jack "Legs" Diamond.
The night after Legs was acquitted from a theft charge in Troy he celebrated one last time at the Rain Bo Room. He was then murdered later that night in his boarding house - the murder is still unsolved.

The Kenmore Ballroom is so rich in architectural history but also arts and entertainment too...especially those who played on our stage.

We are excited to kick off our "Legends of the Rain Bo Room" feature - we' will start with Cab Calloway who brought crowds to the famous night club.

Cab Calloway was a famous American Jazz singer and bandleader during the 1930's and 1940's.
