‘Swing Era’ sound, community-style, historic setting
The band is always looking for places to play and welcomes all to their rehearsals at the inn. “Have a great meal, enjoy the music, do some ballroom dancing or just listen,” said Hank, who will partner up for a go at the fox trot if you ask. “These people have been so gracious here. The room was filled with junk, but when they cleaned it out, they discovered the backdrop and the silhouettes of musicians on the stage.”
The band plays for free, but respectfully accepts donations to cover expenses such as transportation. “There aren’t too many big bands around anymore, but people still love it,” said Hank. “We intend to keep it alive as long as possible.” Visit www.moonlightonthepoconosbigband.com for more information.
