It’s still cold outside but there will be a hot time in the ol’ town Saturday night when the rollicking big band sounds ofLadies Must Swing come to town, sponsored by Cooperative Care, The Waushara Argus, Gary Christensen – State Farm Insurance, and McComb/Bruchs PAC Inc.This show promises memorable music, great musicians, and lots of fun.
Capturing the essence of the nearly forgotten “Girl Bands” of World War II, the 18 women in the award winningLadies Must Swing bop their way through a roaring repertoire of 20th century dance classics. With musical and professional backgrounds as varied as the players themselves the ladies, ages 20-60, enliven wartime classics, celebrate the contributions of female composers and arrangers, and belt out a smokin’ foxtrot. Ladies Must Swing puts audiences In the Moodfor a Sentimental Journey to Route 66, scattering Stardust and creating Mood Indigo because …. Swing they must!
A Silvercryst dinner package is also available before the 7:00 PM show.
