With his jet black hair cut like Moe Howard's, known as "the guy with the low-cut bangs and the high-kicking cornet," Ish Kabibble was a standout in the Kay Kyser Band for two decades. Born Merwyn Bogue in 1908, he joined Kyser's band in 1931. He appeared with the band in a few films, including You'll Find Out (1940), Swing Fever (1943), and Riding High (1950). Between 1949 and 1950, he also appeared regularly on Kay Kyser's television show Kay Kyser's Kollege of Musical Knowledge. Upon leaving the band in 1951, Kabibble moved to Hawaii. Later in life, he moved to Palm Springs, CA.
