Long Island’s premier swing band presents a fun new program of cinematic hits from the Great American Songbook! This exciting 20-piece band explores music from the classic era of Hollywood films, with a spotlight on songs from 1945 to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the end of World War II. And, in keeping with tradition, Swingtime’s 100th birthday celebrations this year include jazz icons Dave Brubeck and Charlie Parker, and legendary big band singers Helen O’Connell and Peggy Lee.
