Swing Orchestra to Perform in San Diego

| January 2, 2013 | 0 Comments

The band is composed of 8 horns, a driving 4-piece rhythm section, 3 female vocalists, and Pete leading the band and playing clarinet.

By popular request, Pete Jacobs and his 16-piece “Wartime Radio Revue Swing Orchestra” will be in San Diego this January for one show only. On Friday evening, January 25, 2013, from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m., the band will provide the music for an evening of big band swing dancing at the San Diego Women’s Club, located at 2557 Third Avenue., San Diego, CA 92103. All ages are invited, as Pete and the Wartime Radio Revue will be playing the classic big band music of Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey and Artie Shaw. In addition, the intricate harmonies of The Andrews Sisters will once again draw in a crowd as Pete’s young female singers, dressed in their khaki army costumes pay tribute to the much-beloved ‘40s ‘sweetheart sisters’ group.

Admission to the dance is $20.00 at the door. All ages are invited, and there will be refreshments, as well as plenty of seating for those who just want to watch. Advanced Tickets can be purchased through the Pete Jacobs Productions website: www.PeteJacobsProductions.com

Pete Jacobs’ Wartime Radio Revue was formed in 1997 and has developed a huge fan-base of all ages. The band has played at such swingin’ landmarks as The Hollywood Bowl, New York’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, The Disneyland Resort, and Catalina’s Casino Ballroom. The band is composed of 8 horns, a driving 4-piece rhythm section, 3 female vocalists, and Pete leading the band and playing clarinet.

“We are very much a dance band”, says Pete Jacobs. “I wanted to re-create the music the way it was played back when big-bands would play for packed houses and dance halls.” And everyone who has ever seen this band live would overwhelmingly agree!
