Van and Schenck

Van and Schenck were a highly successful vocal duo composed of baritone Gus Van (1887–1968) and tenor/pianist Joe Schenck (1891–1930). Their distinctive sound was the result of by Schenck's high tenor harmony to Van's baritone lead. They specialized in dialect songs, with the portly Van singing the expository verse solo and Schenck joining in harmony on the refrain.
