“The Big Band Era” Remembered and Loved

       Does anyone remember those dance hall days partnered up with the huge sound of the big bands? The time when your evening was not only guys revolving their girl about the dance floor but snuggling close during some of those beloved slow dances that meant so much in those days of gentlemen and ladies.

       Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman topped the times with their full-blown orchestras and wild horn sections tearing up the airwaves causing so many a high-stepping, spinning, and enjoyable night of entertainment.

       The mainstays of this musical mood world always included well adored songs like “Little Brown Jug”, “Chatanooga Choo-Choo”, “Pennsylvania 6-5000”, and the big band national anthem “In the Mood”.

       Yes, it was the day of the band in size, volume, and a time when guys and gals let the music take them to the dance floor in a haze that will always be remembered, and forever loved.
