And his unique style included a knack for simulating Hawaiian guitar with his soprano sax. Robert Paul Davis was born in Charlestown, New Hampshire, July 4th, 1903, the second of four sons born to Charlestown native Patrick J. Davis and Annie Cosgrove, of Ireland. At some point, Davis made his way to New York City. The papers of Ed Kirkeby on file at The Rutgers Institute of Jazz Studies indicate Davis was with the California Ramblers as early as 1923. He left the Ramblers in 1924 to join Jan Garber's Orchestra, and was replaced by Jimmy Dorsey.

Ed Kirkeby is a little-known name, but it's true to say that but for him our recorded legacy would have been the poorer. As a recording manager at Columbia he showed his musical leanings early on by his active involvement with the California Ramblers, whose recordings he supervised (not forgetting the Little Ramblers, the Vagabonds, the Five Birmingham Babies, the Goofus Five and the Varsity Eight). In January 1927 he began recording for Okeh under the pseudonym of Ted Wallace with a group drawn largely from the ranks of the California Ramblers.
The original bandmembers were from Ohio, but chose the name California Ramblers because they thought people would be less inclined to listen to a jazz band from the Midwest. The Ramblers Inn was named after the band and was in Pelham, New York. The band was instantly successful, and would remain well known throughout the decade. Ed Kirkeby, who had a lot of pull in the New York music scene, had the B. F. Keith Circuit bar the Ramblers from playing in any of their restaurants, dance halls, or theaters. By the end of March 1922 the original band broke up. They made their last recording on March 16, 1922 for Arto Records.
