Van And Schenck

Profile:
Songwriting team and vaudeville stars comprised of Gus Van and Joe Schenck. It should be noted that they have written with others (e.g. Harry Akst) as well as individually.
Gus Van 1886-1968
Joe Schenck 1891-1930

Van And Schenck were popular United States entertainers in the 1910's and 1920's: Gus Van (born August Von Glahn, August 12, 1886 – March 12, 1968), baritone and Joe Schenck (pronounced "shaŋk"; born Joseph Thuma Schenck, c. 1891 – June 28, 1930), tenor. They were vaudeville stars and made appearances in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1918, 1919, 1920 and 1921. They made numerous phonograph records for the Emerson, Victor, and Columbia record companies.

With Schenck on piano, the duo sang and performed comedy routines. Van was especially adept at dialect humor, and could imitate any number of regional and continental accents.
After Schenck's death in 1930 of heart disease, Van continued to perform as a solo artist on stage, screen, and radio. He appeared in many New York-produced Soundies in 1941. Schenck was buried in The Cemetery of the Evergreens in Brooklyn.
