Celebrate Veteran’s Day with Sweet Swing, a tribute to the Andrew’s Sisters! Stick around town after the annual Vet’s Day parade for an early 6:30 p.m. show at the Auburn Avenue Theater on Saturday, November 10. It’ll be a flashback to great 1940s music.
The Andrew’s Sisters began their carriers singing with various dance bands and touring in vaudeville shows with such acts as Ted Mack, Leon Belasco and Larry Rich. They quickly skyrocketed to fame and were a household name by 1940. With the advent of World War II, the Sisters were dubbed the “Sweethearts of the Armed Forces Radio Service” with their many appearances on shows like “Command performance”, “Mail Call”, and “G.I. Journal” not to mention the many live performances and appearances they did both in the U.S. and abroad. Sweet Swing keeps the harmonic tradition alive, performing the songs made popular by the Andrew’s Sisters and others of the time.
