Calypso Heat Wave (aka: Juke Box Jamboree)

-- Synopsis:
     This musical was made to capitalize on the popularity of calypso music and features some excellent production numbers. It's about a small time record company that gets bought out by a greedy jukebox company owner. The jukebox guy wants to cash in on the calypso craze of the time. He blackmails the record company owner by saying that he won't put any of his records in his jukeboxes unless he gets to be a partner in the record company. Musical chaos reigns for awhile, but eventually everything is set right and happiness ensues.

* Features:
     Dance scene with Bob Banas (current day Jazz teacher) doing the Calypso Dance song and dance man Joel Grey. Calypso Parties with lots of dancing. Also had Swing Dancers Lenny Smith & Freda Angela Wyckoff.
