WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In The Mood is much more than a concert and recreates defining moments with the hypnotic String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra, In The Mood Singers & Swing Dancers from New York, sizzling choreography (from Alex Sanchez - a veteran of 10 Broadway musicals), sassy costumes and an authentic score of over fifty unforgettable hits –Chattanooga Choo Choo, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy (of Company B), In The Mood, Tuxedo Junction, and so much more.
In the mood takes a look at America's Swing Era, the last time when everyone listened and danced to the same style of music. Swing music ranged from mellow intimate ballads to up-tempo big band rhythms, where the waltz and fox trot competed with the wild, acrobatic jitterbug and jive, and when boogie-woogie crazed hepcats crowded the dance floors. Swing Music inspired America with a vision for the future filled with hope, promise and prosperity. The music moved the Nation's spirit and helped to sustain the nation's morale during World War II.
