Jimmy Cavallo was a rock and roll pioneer with his band Jimmy Cavallo & His House Rockers who are believed to be the first white band to play Harlem’s Apollo Theater in 1956. Cavallo’s band caught the ear of legendary rock DJ Alan Freed who put them in his 1956 movie “Rock, Rock, Rock!,” where they played the title song and appeared in other scenes in the film.
