Clarksville, TN – With a nod to yesteryear, the Cumberland Winds Jazz Project is teaming with Clarksville’s oldest professional live theatre, the Roxy Regional Theatre, this fall to recreate an old-time radio show from the 1940s.
Traditional big band music will combine with radio skits, vintage advertisements and maybe a war newsflash or two at “The Jazz Project: 1940s Radio Days” at the Roxy Regional Theatre on Friday, November 22nd, and Saturday, November 23rd, at 7:30pm.
In the intimate setting of the Roxy Regional Theatre, The Jazz Project will present music from the popular big bands of the 1940s, including Glenn Miller, Les Brown, Gene Krupa and the Andrew Sisters, in addition to popular arrangements of Dixieland Band music.
The evenings’ featured vocalist will be Charlie King, singing such all-time favorites such as “A Foggy Day,” “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” and “It Had to Be You.”
Tickets to “The Jazz Project: 1940s Radio Days” are $15.00 and may be purchased online at www.roxyregionaltheatre.org, by phone at 931.645.7699, or at the Roxy Regional Theatre during regular box office hours (9:00am to 2:00pm, Monday through Friday, and one hour prior to the performance).
