Directed by Ray McVay
featuring The Swing Time Jivers and The Polka Dot Dolls
Ray McVay invites you to experience a ‘feel for the forties’ as the world’s greatest Big Band transports you back to the heady days and music of the 1940s – with the fabulous harmonies of the Moonlight Serenaders and the sublime vocals of Catherine Sykes and Mark Porter.
Giving you a taste of the Lindy Hop dance moves of the Forties are the energetic and exciting Swing Time Jivers. And as a special treat we are proud to introduce the Polka Dot Dolls singing the songs of the Andrews Sisters.
Come and hear the music that got us through the war with smiles on our faces and laid the foundations of pop right up to the present day – In the Mood, Moonlight Serenade, American Patrol, Little Brown Jug, Tuxedo Junction and the song that became pop history’s first gold disc, Chattanooga Choo Choo!
Audiences of all ages will be thrilled by the sound of this amazing Big Band.
