Marlow Hardy and his Alabamians
Marion Hardy and his Alabamians were originally formed in Chicago, Illinois in the late 1920s. Cab Calloway fronted this band in 1929 at the Savoy Ballroom. This was the only record released by this band and Marion Hardy’s first name was apparently misspelled as Marlow.
