GLENN MILLER ORCHESTRA 

Get in the mood with the most popular and sought after big band in the world today!

With its unique jazz sound, the Glenn Miller Orchestra is considered to be one of the greatest bands of all time. It was formed in 1956 and has been touring constantly ever since, playing an average of 300 live dates a year — all over the world!

‘A band ought to have a sound all of its own. It ought to have a personality.’ – Glenn Miller

* * *

The legendary Glenn Miller was one of the most successful of all dance bandleaders back in the Swing Era of the 1930’s and 40’s, with a matchless string of hit records such as his signature “In The Mood”.

Glenn disbanded the group in 1942 to volunteer for the Army, forming his famous Glenn Miller Army Air Force Band. On December 15, 1944, Major Miller took off in a single engine plane, disappearing over the English Channel, never to be seen again.

In 1956, with the full permission of the Miller estate, the reformed Glenn Miller Orchestra performed its first concert and has been on the road ever since.

Today, the 18-member ensemble continues to play the original Miller arrangements both from the civilian band and the AAFB libraries. Just as it was in Glenn’s day, the Glenn Miller Orchestra of today is still the most sought after big band in the world!
