Another musician turned politician

by Mark Gabrish Conlan

Another musician who turned politician: Ernani Bernardi, who under the nickname "Noni Bernardi" played in Tommy Dorsey's first big band without his brother and wrote the arrangement for Dorsey's theme song, "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You." Later he was elected to the Los Angeles City Council and served there for nearly 30 years.
