Jeff and I have been entertaining around the midwest for several years now. Many times we portray Lucille Ball and Dezi Arnaz in our "Tribute to I Love Lucy" show, which we have performed in several states at festivals, parks, retirement homes and civic events.
We also have two bands that we travel with at times. Rosie and the Rockabillies is an old-time rock 'n roll band that covers songs from the 1950s through 1970s. Our Tin Pan Alley Cats band is geared toward swing and jazz music, reminiscent of the 1920s and 1930s.
Our latest production, "The Songs That Helped Win The War", now covers music from the early 1940s, along with actual radio news reports from World War II. The show is a bit of a history lesson, interweaving musical numbers, chronologically, from the beginning of the war in 1940 to the end in 1945. We portray some of that time period's most popular singers, such as: Judy Garland, The Andrew Sisters, Bing Crosby, Vera Lynn, Vaugn Monroe and Kitty Kalen, just to name a few.
The music, history and radio news clips from that part of our past makes for a great trip back in time, remembering the sacrifices made and the victories that are eventually celebrated.
We are so excited to have two public show dates coming up! We will be bringing "The Songs That Helped Win The War" to The Indiana Military Museum event in Vincennes over Labor Day weekend with multiple shows on Saturday the 4th as well as to Christie’s on the Square in Salem, In. Friday October 8th.
