Although Glenn Miller disappeared on a plane flying over the English Channel in 1944, the orchestra that bares his name is still alive and well under the leadership of trombonist Larry O’Brien. The Glen Miller Orchestra will be performing at Gilly’s this Friday, August 13th beginning at 7:30pm. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased in advance from Half Price Books and Huber Music & Video. It’ll be an evening of big band music with a dance floor.
Here’s a little something to put you in the mood for Friday night’s show. It’s the original Glenn Miller Orchestra performing one of their signature songs from the movie Sun Valley Serenade.
