If you are in the mood for a moonlight serenade then Hackness Village Hall is the place you need to be later this month.

Tony Turner’s Northern Showtime Orchestra will be performing its tribute to Glenn Miller there on Friday February 22.

“This is our new show for 2013 that will be playing theatre dates later in the year,” said Tony.

“We are doing a special preview of the show as part of Hackness’s Village Hall Friday programme, and with only 100 tickets available we are expecting it to sell-out.”

The Glenn Miller show features all the favourite tunes including In the Mood, American Patrol, Little Brown Jug, I’ve Got a Girl in Kalamazoo,Chattanooga Choo Choo, A String of Pearls, and Moonlight Serenade with both male and female vocals.

“As with all of our shows there is a wealth of background information and clips about Glenn’s life and music and the eight- piece live band perform specially transcribed arrangements from the original recordings by Dave Clegg.” said Tony.

Glenn Miller was an American big band musician, arranger, composer, and bandleader in the swing era.

He was one of the best-selling recording artists from 1939 to 1943. He went missing in action in 1944 on a flight from Engand to France.

This is an amazing opportunity to see this show before it goes on tour.”
