Battle of the Bands II

The Glenn Miller Orchestra vs. the Harry James Orchestra

After last summer's phenomenal success, get ready for the special closing-day event of the 30th edition featuring an all-new "Battle of the Bands"! The world's swinginest big band, the Glenn Miller Orchestra led by Larry O'Brien, matches up against a most worthy adversary making its first-ever visit to Montreal, the Harry James Orchestra led by legendary trumpeter Fred Radke! 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!

Winner: the Harry James Orchestra

I saw the Glenn Miller/Tommy Dorsey battle last summer. I liked it very much. Not sure if I will be able to see them again this year but I recommend this show.
