About Huntsville’s In The Mood Big Swing Band
Huntsville’s In the Mood is one of the area’s newest high caliber jazz and swing orchestra, and is quickly becoming one of the most popular. From Glenn Miller to Count Basie to Frank Sinatra, with Huntsville’s In the Mood, your event will sizzle and swing all night long!
Our band was inspired by the legacy of Glenn Miller and the groundbreaking sound that he discovered. Our core music is swing, and consists of the major hits of Glenn Miller, Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Henry Mancini, and many others, and with many original authentic arrangements, we have occasionally been referred to as the “Glenn Miller band of North Alabama.” Some of our most popular hits include swing songs such as In the Mood (our theme song), Tuxedo Junction, A String of Pearls, Pennsylvania 6-5000, Chattanooga Choo Choo, Fly Me to the Moon, Beyond the Sea, New York, New York, Mack the Knife, Too Darn Hot, All of Me, The Pink Panther, and Route 66. We also have a decent variety of other genres to suit all occasions, such as Latin, pop, oldies rock, Motown, and even some funk. A big band is the ultimate variety band, and with a full rhythm and horn section and three vocalists of differing styles, the possibilities for variety are endless.
The warm harmonies that we produce with these arrangements fill the air and really create an atmosphere of musical magic. We are available for banquets, cocktails, receptions, dances and concerts. Our music is perfect for pretty much any occasion!
Our music is great for people of all ages, and instantly makes you want to move your feet. We try to stay as close to the original arrangements and try to keep everything positive and upbeat. This is swing music at its finest, and it is a style that can never go out of style. As North Alabama’s “Glenn Miller band”, one of our goals is to keep this wonderful music around, and to help promote a culture musical diversity.
