Event

In The Mood 2pm & 7pm
Hop aboard the "Chattanooga Choo Choo" and you'll soon be "In the Mood" to hear some great musicians "Sing, Sing, Sing." In the Mood is a fully staged tribute to Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Sinatra and the big band greats of the '40s. Complete with period costumes and choreography, In the Mood pays homage to America's greatest generation who fought WWII. It was a time when people listened and boogied to up-tempo big band rhythms and danced intimate ballads. 19 on stage including six singer-dancers.
Many of the musical arrangements were written by Vic Schoen, conductor and arranger for The Andrews Sisters, and Music Director for both Universal and Paramount Pictures. Experience the swing, the rhythm and the jazzy, brassy, sentimental and patriotic music of this pivotal time in America's history.
IN THE MOOD celebrates America's Greatest Generation through 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 takes a look at America's Swing Era, the last time when everyone listened and danced to the same style of music.  The show is more than a concert. Through medleys, it recreates defining moments from the 1940s from the happy-go-lucky era before WWII, to the start of the war when conscripts were going abroad to fight the war, to the glimmers of hope that the war would be won and loved ones be reunited. The famous LIFE MAGAZINE picture by Alfred Eisenstaedt of the Sailor Kissing the Nurse epitomized such a moment. Bud Forrest skillfully juxtaposes songs of the 1940s evoking powerful emotions even in people who were born decades after the WWII.  
Swing music ranged from mellow intimate ballads to up-tempo big band rhythms, where the waltz and fox trot competed with the wild, acrobatic jitterbug and jive, and when boogie-woogie dominated the dance floors.
