A Salute to the Veteran is a music revue of the music of WWI, WWII, through to the present. All proceeds from the event will go to supporting our Veterans and their families.
An MC will take us through events in the world from 1914 to present. The Creole Jazz Band will start the show playing tunes that became popular during WWI.
The Bruce James Orchestra, an 18 piece big band with three singers, will be featuring the tunes of WWII. You'll hear such hits as In The Mood and Sentimental Journey.
The second half will start with them performing the hits of the rat pack with tunes such as Mack the Knife and Fly Me To The Moon
The band Double Overtime will follow up doing the
songs of the 1960's through to the present. Tunes such
as Abba's "Dancing Queen", Aretha Franklin's "Respect"
and Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" will be featured.
