Together For The First Time!
Two of nostalgia’s major attractions — The Glenn Miller Orchestra and The Diamonds — star in this entertaining, non-stop musical revue JUKEBOX JUNCTION. The package features musical hits of four decades of America’s favorite music — from Big Band to Doo-wop and Rock and Roll classics. Both attractions have consistently demonstrated their ability to appeal to that ever expanding demographic of fans that love “The Music of America."
Each group performs separately, then the show ends with a show-stopping finale, performing together.
THE GLENN MILLER ORCHESTRA:
Formed by Glenn Miller in 1938, The Glenn Miller Orchestra was THE dance band that took the nation by storm. The arrangements were built around a clarinet and tenor saxophone playing the melody while the saxophones play the harmony. This allowed the impeccable Glenn Miller to create his own arrangements in a style and sound that broke away from the big-band norm. In 1939, the band hit it big with “Moonlight Serenade” and ”In the Mood.” By 1940, The Glenn Miller Orchestra had 31 top 10 hits, and a record eight #1 hits in a single calendar year.
“Moonlight Serenade”, “In the Mood”, “Tuxedo Junction”, “Pennsylvania 6-5000”, “Chattanooga Choo Choo”, “A String of Pearls”, “At Last”, “Little Brown Jug”, and “(I’ve Got a Gal In) Kalamazoo” have appeared consistently in pop culture and have brought swing music to a new height of popularity.
In 1957, The Diamonds released an instant million selling hit called “Little Darlin’.” The song continues to sell worldwide and has been dubbed “The National Anthem of Rock and Roll.” To date it has sold approximately 20 million copies. “We’ve been pleased to find a growing audience among all age groups," says leader Gary Owens. "They love songs they can understand, remember and actually sing the words to… today, tomorrow, or even 20 years from now.”
The Diamonds perform all the #1 hits, including "Silhouettes," "The Stroll," "Little Darlin'," "Why Do Fools Fall In Love" and more.
