Quotes & Highlights‘a marvelous entertainment. Don’t miss these wonderful performers!’ —L.A. Jazz Review
The June 2006 show at the Alex was completely sold out! So the Towne Singers are again combining forces with the Swing City Big Band and swing dancers from Pasadena Ballroom Dance Association.
Featuring many of the lush ballads and finger-poppin’ jive that made the music of the 1940s so contagious, including: In the Mood; Chattanooga Choo-Choo; I Got a Gal in Kalamazoo; I’ll Never Smile Again; Sing, Sing, Sing; It Don’t mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing); and Moonlight Serenade. These songs, and many more, sung with the original lyrics, many of which rarely have been heard before.
The show is presented in the form of a live radio broadcast from the 1940s, complete with commercial jingles, period costumes, humor, and dancing. This is a unique opportunity to see and hear a full 17-piece 1940s-era Big Band with an over-the-top swing dance ensemble AND a 100-voice show chorus live onstage at the same time.
