The Sentimental Journey Band (of Charlottesville) is a true and classic Big Band carrying on the tradition of the great dance bands of the Swing Era with music for dancing and listening pleasure. Playing in the style of, and in many instances the original songs of the Miller, Dorsey, Goodman, Count Basie and other great bands, this professional seventeen-member band with vocalists brings back the Romance of the Dance from the golden days of the Big Band when Swing was King.
The band features many of the area's best musicians and includes both male and female vocalists. The band plays the music made famous by Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Ella Fitzgerald and many others of the great big band era. Sentimental Journey has a library of over 400 arrangements including swing, fox trot, waltzes, Latin and contemporary big band.
