In 1928 Armstrong began fronting Carroll Dickerson's Orchestra and traveled east from Chicago to New York. The band became known as the Louis Armstrong Orchestra, with Dickerson acting as musical director. In 1929 Louis Armstrong was hired to play in the pit band of the popular all Black musical revue Hot Chocolates, which featured the music of Andy Razaf and Fats Waller. The show was a great success and Armstrong stole the show with his singing of Ain't Misbehavin' which became his biggest selling record to date. After each night's show he would then join the Dickerson crew at Connie's Inn and finish the evening at the Lafayette Theater (7th Avenue at 132nd Street) next door.
