You’ll hear a variety of styles from Aaron Copland’s Hoe Down to Malaguena, from A Salute to Spike Jones to Seventy-Six Trombones and more.
Back by popular demand, It’s the Rocky & the Rollers Big Band Orchestra playing from the SWING Era songbook of a great generation…..PLUS two Superstars of the 1960’s: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Shirley Alston Reeves, the former lead singer of all the million selling #1 songs of The Shirelles and Dennis Tufano, former lead singer of The Buckinghams.
Return to the swinging "Fabulous Forties" with The LaLiPops (BJ Odendahl, Melody Gardner, Donna Francis), The Villages version of the Andrew Sisters. They will be bringing back the "Big Band" era with the help of the Shades of Blue Big Band led by Paul Holtzman. High powered songs like "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy", "Chattanooga Choo Choo" and, of course "Sing, Sing, Sing". Swoon to "Apple Blossom Time" and "Sentimental Journey”. William (Bill) Davis will serve as emcee and host. A portion of the proceeds for this event will go to Operation Shoebox.
