Here are some selections by the dance band of the piano duo of Victor Arden and Phil Ohman.

The Arden Ohman Orchestra performed in a number of Broadway productions in the late ‘2s and early ’30s.  “Who’s Your Little Who-Zis?” composed by bandleader Ben Bernie,  is typical of the Arden-Ohman band’s early ’30s sound – very bouncy and along the lines of what one might expect to hear in a Broadway theatre of the time.

“It’s You I Love” and “Why” come from the 1929-1930 Broadway production Sons O’ Guns.   The play was later made into a 1936 comedy film.
