Havin’ A Sock Hop
“Relive your memories of the 50’s or create new ones.” Join the Stardusters big band as they “jive” and play music from that new 50’s phenomenon Rock ‘n Roll! It’s a real sock hop, where kids used to kick off their shoes to protect the gym floor. Dance to tunes like Rock Around the Clock, At the Hop, Barbara Ann and Tequilla. And no better place to do this than at the gym at Harmony School!
The Stardusters will be playing some big band swing favorites then transition to good old Rock ‘n Roll. Remember the Buunny Hop, one of the early lines dances? Or the Twist? Singing with the Stardusters Big Band will be Rachel Caswell one of Bloomington’s most versatile vocalists.
When: Saturday, April 27, 2019; 7:00 PM till 10:00 PM
Where: Harmony School Gym, address 909 E. Second (Free parking)
All ages welcome! Refreshments will be available.
Wear socks or not!, but join us for this fun-filled evening of listening and dancing as we Rock Around the Clock!

Famous for being the leader of the most popular big band during the Big Band Swing Era, Glenn Miller is the music symbol of a generation. His music, a careful mixture of swing, jazz and improvisation, gained the admiration and praise of audiences and critics alike. Glenn Miller and his orchestra’s magnificent music will be always remembered by those who enjoy the beautiful sounds they produced.
Stardusters Music is proud to present a wonderful new show, Glenn Miller In The Mood, featuring the Stardusters Big Band the Starlighters vocal quartet, vocalist Kathleen McConahay and Rachel Caswell and dancers Jeff and Lauren Slone.
The production begins in the late 1930’s club scene, advances to WWII, Miller’s enlistment, the creation of the Army Air Force Band, and a re-enactment of his famous “I Sustain the Wings” radio show broadcast. You will thrill again to Miller’s legendary hits including In The Mood, Moonlight Serenade, String of Pearls, American Patrol and so many more.
