Real Name:
Adolph Joseph Hohl
Profile:
Arthur Hall (his real name was Adolph Joseph Hohl) was born in New York on Oct, 14, 1889. He was married 10/11/1911 to Matilda Kroencke (1890-1963). He had two sons Eugene A. Hohl (1912-2005) and Henry E. Hohl (1914-1989).

His first recordings were on 1912 as member of the Manhattan Quartet (Manhattan Quartet / Manhattan Quartett), with whom he stayed until 1929.
During the World War I, Adolph J. Hohl changed his name to Arthur Hall on 1917 due to the anti-german hysteria, & started recording as solo artist as well.
Among the many recordings he did on as solo artist, Hall cut "Yes, We Have No Bananas!" on 1923 for Black Swan under the pseudonym of Howard Lewis, which went also issued on the Olympic label.
Hall also worked for other labels (both as solo artist & part of vocal groups ranging from duets to quartets as well as providing vocal refrains for jazz & dance band records) such as the Plaza group (Banner, Domino (as either Allen Craig or Cliff Stewart), Regal, Oriole (as Charles Nelson), etc.), Emerson, Everybodys, the Grey Gull group (Grey Gull, Madison, Supreme, Radiex, Globe, Amco, etc.) (the Grey Gull company used masters from the NYRL group, Emerson & other companies until it opened his own studio on 1926), the NYRL/New York Recording Laboratories group (Paramount, Puritan, Broadway, Puretone, etc.), the Pathé Frères Phonograph Co. (Pathé Actuelle, Actuelle, Perfect (3), Davega, etc.), The Arto Company (which also included Bell (4), Cleartone Records (2) & many others), the Bell Record Corporation (which included Bell (4)), Gennett & Edison, just to mention several of these.

From 1924, Arthur Hall began recording several duets with tenor John Ryan (14), beginning with "Hawaiian Nithningale" (matrix 9863 - recorded on November 21 of 1924) / "I'm Someone Who's No One To You" (matrix 9832 - recorded on November 7 of 1924) (released on Edison Diamond Disc 51473), which brought the beginning of a long series of recordings by Hall & Ryan, both under their own names & several pseudonyms (for example, The Harmony Brothers).
Hall & Ryan were also augmented by Ed Smalle when they recorded also as The Frolickers for Edison.
One year later, Hall joined the vocal group That Singing Four, which also gave way to the National Male Quartet on 1926.
His final Edison Diamond disc was "Sweet Elaine" (matrix E-18188 - recorded on January 24 of 1928), which was issued on Edison Diamonc Disc 52235 on 1928.

Arthur Hall died during March 1960 in Broward County, Florida.

I updated the profile for Arthur Hall as he was my great grandfather Adolph Joseph Hohl! I am so glad I can contribute to facts about him and enjoy his talents when I could not as a child. I'm proud that he is in my family tree! I was born 1959 and he died 1960. His success in the music industry helped his family during the depression! Proud of him!
