The Vaugh Monroe Show - Dan Gabel's troupe on tour this month!

This month the 1940s Big Band era comes to life again in a touring show by the terrific musician and band leader Dan Gabel, who goes beyond his already fabulous Abeltones swing orchestra to morph into a delightful version of a live stage show such as New England's own great big band of yesteryear, lead by trombonist and singer Vaughn Monroe might have conducted.

From the press release:

This unique show transports the audience to October 1949, just after World War II.     The Vaughn Monroe Orchestra under the direction of Dan Gabel performs the original hits of Monroe, along with the Moon Maids vocal group, dancers, comedian, and skits from the Camel Caravan radio and TV show. "Racing with the Moon", "There, I've Said It Again", "Ballerina", "Let it Snow" and "Ghost Riders in the Sky" will all be heard using the original hand-written manuscripts through special arrangement with the Monroe family and New England Conservatory. Original band member and legendary guitarist Mr. Bucky Pizzarelli joins the outfit in a truly spectacular event. It is our goal to create an evening of entertaining time travel and "the voice that won the war."

A list of the dates and cities is above.  The next performance is at Springfield Technical Community College - the Springfield Armory site grounds - on Sunday, October 8th from 2:00 p.m. to 4 p.m. and the show is FREE!

Give yourself a treat and catch one of these shows.  You'll love it!  For more info, see this website.
