In the Mood

Saturday February 6 at 2:00 pm

To the delight of fans of the American Big Bands and the Big Band era, the brassy, all-singing, all-dancing, all-American 1940s musical revue, In The Mood is coming to Savannah in celebration of 23 years on tour.

Hop aboard the “Chattanooga Choo Choo” to “Tuxedo Junction” and get “In The Mood” for a “Moonlight Serenade.” In the Mood is a fully staged tribute to Glenn Miller, The Andrews Sisters, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Harry James, Erskine Hawkins, Benny Goodman, Frank Sinatra and other idols of the ’40s.

Complete with authentic costumes, music arrangements and choreography, In The Mood pays homage to America’s greatest generation who fought WWII. It was a time when Americans listened and boogie woogied to up-tempo big band rhythms and danced cheek-to-cheek to intimate ballads. Experience the swing, the rhythm and the jazzy, sentimental and patriotic music of this pivotal time in America’s history.

In The Mood has a cast of nineteen on stage: the sensational 13-piece “String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra” and the “In The Mood Singers and Dancers” performing over fiffty unforgettable hits — Boogie
