Tickets are on sale now for IN THE MOOD Live, a 1940s big band musical revue hitting the road for its 22nd year of touring in 2016. The show will visit 60+ U.S. cities for 125 performances. Fans of American Big Bands and the Big Band era, and music and dance fans in general, will appreciate the brassy, all-singing, all-dancing and all-American 1940s musical revue that is much more than a concert.
IN THE MOOD is a live, fully staged tribute to the American music and lyrics of the ‘30s & ’40s. Nineteen cast members including the sensational String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra and the In the Mood Singers & Dancers bring authentic, classy costumes, sizzling choreography and more than fifty unforgettable hits to the stage. From show Creator and Producer Bud Forrest:
“IN THE MOOD pays homage to America’s greatest generation, when people listened to up-tempo big band rhythms and danced to intimate ballads. The show’s success over two decades is a sign that the swing era music is alive and well, plus we’re introducing new generations to the swing, the rhythm and the jazzy, sentimental and patriotic music of a pivotal time in American history.”
IN THE MOOD celebrates the music of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Harry James, Erskine Hawkins, The Andrews Sisters, Frank Sinatra and other idols of the 1940s.
IN THE MOOD is a phenomenon among touring shows, performing in 49 states in the U.S, Canada, New Zealand, The Netherlands and two sold-out tours of Australia.
