The Gettysburg Big Band

The Gettysburg Big Band

The Gettysburg Big Band, comprised of seventeen musicians from Gettysburg and surrounding communities, announces the continuation of their monthly dance. The band was initially formed twenty years ago and has undergone numerous changes resulting in one of the few and leading true "dance bands" in South Central Pennsylvania.
As a group, the members include active and retired doctors, teachers, service musicians, businessmen, accountant, computer specialists, financial advisor, and college professors.
The dance band's repertoire includes the most popular and original arrangements of the 1940s Big Band Era when Glenn Miller, the Dorsey Brothers, and Harry James crisscrossed the country performing in the great ballrooms and famous clubs of that era.
The first dance of the New Year begins January 25 from 7-9pm at the new Gettysburg American Legion, and continues on the fourth Sunday of every month.
A buffet in a nightclub smoke free setting is available from 5:30pm. Admission is $5 at the door and the dances are open to the public. For more information about the dance, or to make buffet reservations, visit the band's website at www.gettysburgbigband.com or call 717-677-7198.
