The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra
March 4, 8:00 PM, Casino Regina Show Lounge
The Legend Lives On…In 1937, Glenn Miller stepped out to form his own band, but it was not to be. Formed in March 1938, the second Glenn Miller Orchestra soon began breaking attendance records all up and down the East Coast. There were record-breaking recordings, as well, such as Tuxedo Junction, which sold 115,000 copies in the first week. In the Mood & Pennsylvania 6-5000 all appeared on the RCA Victor Bluebird label. There was also Glenn Miller's Moonlight Serenade, a radio series which aired three times a week over CBS.
During the war, he ultimately organized the Glenn Miller Army Air Force Band. After being shipped to England, the Glenn Miller Army Air Force Band engaged in over 800 performances in less than one year. After the tragic death of Miller in 1944, the band was reformed. The 'Glenn Miller Orchestra' continued to record and perform under various leaders starting in 1956. The band continues to play many of the original Miller arrangements and are also playing more modern selections in the big-band style, carefully selecting only those newer tunes that lend themselves naturally to the Miller style and sound.
