IN THE MOOD is a celebration of the music of the 1930s & 40s – the Big
Band era. It was the last time that all Americans were listening and
dancing to the same kind of music. With our live sensational 13 piece
String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra and our fabulous IN THE MOOD
Singers and Dancers, the great melodies and lyrics that are still with
us today are presented in a musical revue that is jazzy, sentimental,
rhythmic, nostalgic and patriotic – all happening at the same time.
With music arrangements, costumes and choreography IN THE MOOD is as
authentic as it gets.
IN THE MOOD captures the feel of the big band era in part because of
the involvement of the late Vic Schoen as the show’s primary arranger.
Mr. Schoen created the musical arrangements for the entire career of
the legendary Andrews Sisters and was Music Director for both
Universal and Paramount Pictures. He was one of the seminal creators
of the swing-era sound that he imbued into IN THE MOOD. We are both
pleased and proud to carry on this tradition.
The National Archives in Washington, DC brought IN THE MOOD to their
audiences as part of their commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of
WWII, and the response was so extraordinary that crowds lined up for
hours before curtain time. In 1993, thousands attended an out-of-doors
performance on Constitution Avenue and many stayed to dance the night
away. As a result, in 1994 and 1995 IN THE MOOD, in affiliation with
the USO, began a series of tours that played to audiences across the
United States. In 1997 The band and singers were selected to be part
of the entertainment for one of President Bill Clinton 2nd
Now touring for nearly a quarter of a century, IN THE MOOD is a
phenomenon among touring shows. Performances have taken place all
across America, Canada, New Zealand, The Netherlands and 2 sold-out
tours of Australia. IN THE MOOD is constantly being revamped and
updated. While there are a number of permanent Big Band/Swing Era
songs in the show, many are rotated out and replaced with selections
from the huge body of music from the late 1930s to the mid 1940s.
