Home of the Brave
a tribute to our Armed Forces

Featuring The Swing Sisters and The New 8th Army Air Corp Orchestra

Home of the Brave delivers all of the nostalgia from the height of our nation’s greatest generation with an expert re-creation of the very best of the service bands: THE NEW 8th ARMY AIR CORP ORCHESTRA featuring the incomparable Swing Sisters. This musical tour de force provides a swinging foundation for timeless classics such as: Glenn Miller’s Moonlight Serenade and In The Mood, Benny Goodman’s Let’s Dance and Sing, Sing, Sing, The Andrews Sisters Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and Don’t Sit Under The Apple Tree. Home of the Brave will take you on a sentimental musical journey through the war years. During World War II, scores of inductees from the entertainment ranks gave military bands and special services units the crème of the big band crop - from Major Glen Miller’s famous Army Air Corp Band to the many smaller service bands all along the war front. Working with the USO and a host of legendary guest stars, it was their job to help lessen the pain of war and bring a little touch of home to thousands of military personnel stationed at remote military bases. Home of the Brave features ALL 13 performers dressed in full WWII Army uniforms, colorful band stands emblazoned with the popular 8th Army Air Corp insignia and several other authentic wartime memorabilia. Home of the Brave featuring The Swing Sisters and backed by The New 8th Army Air Corp Orchestra is THE patriotic tribute that will make you feel proud to be an American!
