In the 30's, there was a trumpet vaudeville act called the Trumpet Aces composed of the Candreva Brothers. The only recording I can find of them was from a 1935 movie with George Burns and Gracie Allen called Here Comes Cookie.
Can anyone tell me what the names of all six brothers? I studied with Phil Candreva in the 70's (one of the brothers), a first call trumpet player for Universal, CBS, Disney and other studios in Hollywood. He talked a bit about his vaudeville days and his drinking buddy, Ralph. I eventually asked about 'Ralph' and found out from him it was Rafael Mendez. I've uncovered a picture of Louis Maggio, Rafael and Phil taken in the 50s (picture on Scott Webber | A Brief History of ‘The Original Louis Maggio System for Brass’).
So, I'd like to know more about his brothers, where he fit in the birth order, names of siblings, and if any of them played professionally after their vaudeville days.
