Flashback to the great ballrooms of New York in the late ‘30s. Two legendary orchestras share the stage at the same time, battling it out for the honour of their incredible respective repertoires. No holds barred! And if some liberties are taken, if one orchestra poaches a signature tune or two — or even a musician! — from the other, it only adds to the fun! With the two most prestigious big bands in the world, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra directed by Buddy Morrow, and the Glenn Miller Orchestra led by Larry O’Brien, expect nothing less than the Super Bowl of swing! Touchdown! Something utterly new to this Festival!
Winner: the Glenn Miller Orchestra
