ARTIST BIOGRAPHY
Abe Lyman (August 4, 1897 - October 23,
1957) was a popular band leader from the
1920s to the 1940s. He made recordings,
appeared in films and provided the music for
numerous radio shows, including Your Hit
Parade.
His name at birth was Abraham Simon. Abe
and his brother Mike changed their last
name to Lyman because they both thought it
sounded better. Abe learned to play the
drums when he was young, and at the age
of 14 he had a job as a drummer in a
Chicago café. Around 1919, Abe was
regularly playing music with two other
notable future big band leaders, Henry
Halstead and Gus Arnheim in California.
