Excellent performance. Musicians, dancers/singers were all very good. No dull moments at all. At the end they had military veterans in the audience stand and be acknowledged. There were lots of wet eyes in the audience and even on stage. 2...continued

This show is TOPS! The band of thirteen is every bit as good as Miller, Dorsey, Goodman, Shaw and the rest. The singers are superb and the dancing stirs up wonderful memories. This is the second time I've seen the show and I'd go again tomorrow if...continued

Fun and very much like a cruise ship evening performance. Toward the end they overdid the patriotic tear jerking, but overall it was very entertaining. However, the sudden "Oh Danny Boy" during the armed forces songs was pure corn! What a...continued

I was surprised at how polished this group was -- the big band had a huge sound nostalgic of the great orchestras of yore (Basie, Ellington, James, etc.). The singers/dancers were fantastic too, playing true to the voices, moves, and characters of...continued

We had hoped for more of a big band experience that focused on the musicians and not a musical with cheesy dance numbers. The singing was good but we could have done without it and kept the focus on the band. This production seemed not quite...continued
