We're about to have a blast here at The Vintage Lifestyle Hour, chatting with the amazing Moonlight Serenaders!

 

The Moonlight Serenade Orchestra has been performing great big band music since 2001! 
 
Come on out and join us for a nostalgic trip back to WW II and enjoy a re-creation of an authentic USO Canteen Show and Dance. If you’re a WWII veteran, perhaps you’ll look back to these USO dances fondly as some of the better memories of your war experience. Or, if you’ve seen great war movies like Pearl Harbor, Memphis Belle, 1941 or The Glenn Miller Story, you saw how the USO would provide entertainment for the troops and fliers by sponsoring dances featuring the leading dance bands and singers of the time. In order to accommodate the large crowds and provide shelter, the dances were often held inside the same hangars where aircraft were maintained, local auditoriums, hotel ballrooms or nightclubs.
