  • Midge, my buddy from WVMS, (West Valley Mature Singles) , has invited us to this show.  She says it is a great show, akin to the USO shows, for those of you who remember them.  She says it lots of fun when you are with a big group. 

    The event is attended by thousands, an evening promised to be full of fun. Doors open at 4:30 pm with a dance lesson at 4:45, with the Arizona Lindy Hop Society,  a World War ll Musical show at 5:30, with Sing, sing, Sing, with a Swing, a Costume Contest at 7 pm and the Big Band Show with dancing from 7:30 to 11:00. There is a Swing Dance Contest as well.

    There are drinks and food available.  A lot of people come dressed in the styles of the 40s, so this posting gives you plenty of time to start scouring the vintage stores for an outfit. Doesn't that sound like fun?

    The Commemorative Air Force Arizona Wing 'Night in the 40s Big Band Dance is one of the largest Big Band Dances in the country with a 22 piece Big Band Orchestra, named the Sonoran Swing Big Band Orchestra .  Their B-17 Sentimental Journey will take you right back to 1943!

    Tickets are $35 in advance , or $40 the day of the dance.  Tickets are available at either the Commemorative Air Force Arizona Wing Museum , or online at

    For more info, email Midge through our website, as she is a member of my group as well.

    Glad to see some of you will be joining us for this event. It's a lot of fun and even better when you have a group sitting together.
