Moonlight Swing Big Band

P.O. Box 133
Citrus Heights, CA 95611

916-207-3822

Organized in 1996, the Moonlight Swing Living History Big Band is a step backward in time. Not only are the arrangements from the 30's and 40's, but the organization also strives for that vintage look through swing era attire, on-stage choreography and arrangements taken directly from original 78s and V-Discs.

 The Moonlight Swing Living History Big Band is an incorporated not-for-profit, living-history musical organization dedicated to preserving the music of the swing era. As a full sized, authentic recreation of the big swing bands of the 1930s-1940s, with twenty members, the band performs for a variety of public and private venues and also recreates the great 418th Army Air Forces Training Command band of WWII, led by Capt. Glenn Miller. The group’s busy schedule has included such popular settings as the Nevada County Air Show, the Magic Circle Theater, the Rocklin Jubilee, and the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee.  The band has been privileged to perform for Bob & Dolores Hope at the "Wings Over Stockton" airshow in 1998, the Jimmy Doolittle Raiders Reunion in 2003, and members of the Tuskegee Airmen in 2005.
