The Glenn Miller Orchestra

Glenn Miller

A band ought to have a sound all of its own. It ought to have a personality.Glenn Miller

'It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing!' Duke Ellington famously said it, and The Glenn Miller Orchestra has it, continuing to thrill audiences worldwide with its unique jazz sound and incredible repertoire of Glenn Miller favorites. With tunes like 'Moonlight Serenade', 'Tuxedo Junction', 'That Old Black Magic' and a host of others, The Glenn Miller Orchestra had over 50 Top Ten hits during the early War years, until the plane carrying Miller disappeared without a trace over the English Channel in 1944, ending the band's legacy. Re-formed in 1956, the 18-member group is now two generations of extraordinary brass and wind players along, still rocking the original Miller arrangements, while adding some modern momentum to the mix. Back by popular demand, you'll love The Glenn Miller Orchestra's big band sound whether you're a part of the Greatest Generation or a brass-and-rhythm-loving Millennial.
