Unforgettable Big Band will be providing the music as downtown York swings during the York County Heritage Trust midwinter extravaganza on January 21. The Trust is bringing the atmosphere of the World War II years to life at the "Market Street Canteen," and inviting any and all history buffs, swing dancers, and friends to step out and swing at the Trust headquarters and museum at 250 E. Market Street in York.
The York County Heritage Trust celebrates the life, culture and history of York County, and is presenting a special exhibition centered on the life and command of Gen. Jacob Devers, a York Native who commanded the 6th Army Group in the European Theater during the war. Devers was also heavily involved in the development of legendary military equipment including the M16 rifle, and the Sherman and Pershing tanks.
The Trust museum main lobby will take on the appearance of a war era USO show, as the band plays swinging favorites of the period. This is one of the big events of the month, and one of the biggest on the calendar for the Trust, following up last year's "Roaring '20s" salute. Admission is just $20 for members of the Trust and $25 for non-members, and tickets can be purchased through the Trust website at http://yorkheritage.org. We hope to see many of our friends and fans as we turn back the clock to the glory days of the big bands.
