Battle of the Bands IV

The Glenn Miller Orchestra vs. the Artie Shaw Orchestra

Flashback. Late '30s. Two Big Bands. On one side, the Glenn Miller Orchestra (winners two years ago), on the other, the Artie Shaw Orchestra (the faves of the 2010 edition). They'll battle 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! It's a concept so unique that it's now been exported to western Canada and the U.S.! This 4th annual classic American Big Band throwdown features two legendary orchestras, on the same stage, at the same time, here to swing Festival fans the way they did in the famed New York ballrooms of their renowned heyday.

Winner: the Glenn Miller Orchestra
