The Blue Angel was the only club in the US that regularly featured calypso music and entertainers, long before Belafonte had his first hit and the craze took off.
In February 1955, the Calypso Follies was presented at the club, including a violinst and singer calling himself The Charmer.
The Charmer was actually born Louis Wolcott. While in town with the act, he attended a speech given by Elijah Muhammad. Soon after, he quit show business, became Minister Louis X at the NOI Temple 11 in Boston and later became head of the entire NOI.
