Bobby and Harry Cardillo

Bobby Cardillo has enjoyed a long, varied, and successful musical career spanning over fifty years. He describes himself as a product of the big band era. During the 1940's he traveled with the Ina Rae Hutton jazz band, after she broke up her renowned all-female big band and began enlisting ex-GI's. Since then Bobby has worked as recording artist, performer, and teacher. He has accompanied such international stars as Mel Torme, Diahann Carroll, Henry Mancini, and Michel LeGrand with the Pittsburgh Symphony at Heinz Hall. In the late 1980's, he opened Cardillo's Club Cafe on Pittsburgh's South Side. A full-time jazz club, Cardillo's Club Cafe booked local talent and occasionally national talent, such as pianist Tommy Flanagan. Bobby still occasionally performs in the Pittsburgh area.
