The Glenn Miller Orchestra, Patchogue December 11, 2015

We got to see The Glenn Miller Orchestra this past Friday in a holiday show and we all had a blast. It's a great show recreating the best of Glenn Miller and everyone in the band was top notch as far as we were concerned.

HOWEVER, the best moment came right at the end when the band leader asked the audience if they should play one more number and the man behind us shouted out, "Play Bugle Call Rag!

The Band Leader looked surprised… smiled and said… Ok… and turned to the band and motioned for them to find the music. The guys shuffled lots of lead sheets and orchestrations and then….. they wowed everyone there with a rousing rendition of Bugle Call Rag. They nailed it and the audience cheered with delight.

Here is the video of the file.
