Description

Over sixty years since the public first embraced the successful Miller Sound, both the legend and the music live on. The World-Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra is the most sought after big band in the world today for both concert and dance engagements. Still considered the greatest band of all time, its unique sound is loved by almost anybody that cares for dance music. The legendary Glenn Miller was one of the most successful of all the dance bandleaders back in the Swing era of the 1930’s and 40’s. But, in 1944 while leading the Glenn Miller Army Air Force Band, Miller died while traveling to entertain the troops in Europe. The Miller estate formed the present Glenn Miller Orchestra in 1956 following strong popular demand. The band has been touring consistently since, playing an average of 300 live dates a year around the globe to millions of fans.

The 16-member band continues to play many of the original Miller arrangements that keep exciting fans who have not heard them played for a while. Additionally, they are also playing more modern selections in the big-band style, carefully selecting only those newer tunes that lead themselves naturally to the Miller style and sound.

Come out and hear the music you love from the best band around! Moonlight Serenade, I’ve Got a Gal in Kalamazoo, Chattanooga Choo-Choo, A String of Pearls …. all the great tunes of the Swing era!
