Those Swinging Years

Week Seven of the Long Beach Municipal Band's 99th Season is all about swing.

I know.

What's a flute player doing on a swing gig.

We're playing medleys of the greatest big bands ever to burn up a stage including:

"Caldonia" Woody Herman Band

"Four Brothers" Woody Herman Band

"Don't Be That Way" Harry James Band

"Sing Sing Sing" Benny Goodman Band featuring Gene Krupa and Harry James on trumpet:

This band is my all time, hands down favorite:

"In The Mood" Glenn Miller Band with Tex Beneke (check out the sweet choreography!)

We're in the parks of Long Beach all week.

Tomorrow: Los Cerritos Park
