Bob Scheerer began tap dancing at age six and by thirteen was under contract to Universal Studios. He later moved on to Broadway, and was featured in Lend An Ear, Dance Me A Song, Top Banana, and The Boy Friend.
Bob transitioned to television where he became an Emmy Award winning director. His credits include shows and specials featuring Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Shirley MacLaine, Danny Kaye, and Barbra Streisand. Bob also did many jazz shows featuring such luminaries as Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Gerry Mulligan, and Billie Holiday.
In the early 1990's, Bob created this work of sheer swingin' delight -- "The Organ Grinder's Swing."
