"...... it was Benny Goodman who officially launched the Big Band Era one night in 1935 at the Palomar Ballroom in LA. Benny and his musicians were tired of the boring dance music they were churning out .... and on the final night of his engagement he defiantly broke out into a wild, swinging session .... The crowd went wild and The King of Swing was crowned that night. The Stardust Memories Big Band (SMBB) is comprised of some of SW Florida's finest musicians, and was created to carry forward the legacy of this true and original American art form to dance venues and the concert stage through public and private performances.
The concerts are free, but donations will be accepted.
