At the beginning of the forties, Big Bands continued to dominate popular music, with the Swing legends Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman leading the way, each with a famous band of their own. Bing Crosby's smooth voice made him one of the most popular singers, along with Frank Sinatra, Dinah Shore, Perry Como and Kate Smith.
The Andrews Sisters and their brand of patriotic music entertained troops during WWII, and also became the best-selling female vocal group in the history of popular music. Be-Bop and Rhythm and Blues grew out of the big band era toward the end of the decade, epitomized by Charlie Parker, Dizzie Gillespie, Thelonious Monk and Billy Holiday. For nostalgic private and corporate events, 1940s World War II Era Music can be an excellent choice! Please select a city where you'd like to book 1940s Entertainment.
