Join us in the Large Meeting Room at 7:30 pm for Jack Craig’s Music Program for The Story of Swing, Bands in War Years: 1940 – 1944. From 1910 into the 1950’s, dance bands left an amazing footprint on American culture. During the ‘swing era’, band leaders developed their own theme or signature songs, and singers emerged as superstars. This program covers 1940 – 1944 swing music and features Lionel Hampton, Vaughn Monroe, Stan Kenton, Spike Jones, Bonnie Lake, Anita O’Day, Sarah Vaughn, Kitty Kallen and several more.
