Cumberland Winds Jazz Project takes you back to yesteryear with “1940s Radio Days” at the Roxy Regional Theatre

Clarskville's Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – Join the Roxy Regional Theatre this weekend as the Cumberland Winds Jazz Project teams with Clarksville’s oldest professional theatre to recreate an old-time radio show from the 1940s.

Combining traditional big band music with radio skits, vintage advertisements and a war newsflash or two, the “Cumberland Winds Jazz Project: 1940s Radio Days” will play the Roxy Regional Theatre for two evenings only, Friday, November 18th at 7:00pm and Saturday, November 19th at 7:00pm.

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, Count Basie, Gene Krupa and Stan Kenton.
 
The evenings’ featured vocalist will be Charlie King, singing such all-time favorites such as “A Foggy Day,” “You’re Nobody ‘Till Somebody Loves You” and “It Had to Be You.”  Our very own David Graham, Production Associate and company member at the Roxy Regional Theatre, will serve as your radio announcer for the evening.
