Mr. & Mrs. Tjader

Callen & Victoria Tjader – About 1923, Bob and Muriel partnered with a couple they met in a Los Angeles dance studio named Tjader.  The two couples formed the Berkeley Four, a musical/comedy act that toured for several months on the Pantages Circuit.  Callen Tjader and Bob play the banjo, the wives the piano and all of them danced.  The act broke up as Muriel and Victoria Tjader did not get along.

Callen & Victoria Tjader are the parents of Cal Tjader, a child star who tap danced with Bill Robinson (Mr. Bojangles) in the movies and later became a noted, Grammy winning percussionist.
