Jimmy Durante was a legendary mid-20th century American jazz musician and a popular Las Vegas act who was included in the holosuite program Bashir 62, a 24th century rendition of 1962.

That year, Vic Fontaine interrupted a heart-to-heart he was having with Quark, because he and his lady friend, Ginger, were on their way out to see Pete and Jimmy perform at the Sands Hotel. (DS9: "What You Leave Behind")

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 224), the birth and death years of Jimmy Durante were 1893 and 1980, respectively. Furthermore, the authors of the reference work stated he began his career on the stage, before moving to audio and video broadcasts, as well as in the movies. The entry ends with a quote from Durante, which he said at the end of his shows, "Good night Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are.", after the death of his wife. Mrs. Calabash was his nickname for her.
