Get “in the mood” for our sensational Big Band voyages and embark on a musical journey unlike any other. Touching on the distinctive, popular periods of the genre from the early 1930s to the late 1940s, special performances by our extraordinary American Queen ensemble, along with the 13-piece orchestra “The Great American Swing Band,” will play the tunes you know so well all in the original arrangements that made them legendary. Benny Goodman once said that Glenn Miller was so popular because his music had mass appeal, but that could just as well be said of all bands of the time. And it is as true today as it was back then. This is the iconic sound that kept people dancing through a depression and a war. Today, although times have changed, this is the music that can lift the human spirit, span the generations and bring everyone together - both the young and the young at heart. Each evening offers the opportunity to dance and swing to your heart's content with our dance hosts, so if you are a fan of the big band era, this is a sentimental journey you do not want to miss.
