The 18 piece Astor Big Band and Singers present the story of Alton G Miller from the formation of his first band in 1936 through to his tragic death, 77 years ago from 2021, on a flight from Bedford to Paris on Dec 14th 1944.
We use the format of his “Chesterfied” sponsored broadcasts with the Andrews Sisters – Something Old. Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue to bring you a host of Miller classics and a selection of more modern compositions from shows such as Les Misérables, West Side Story and Chess as he would have played them. A concert to appeal to all fans of Big Bands and Modern Musicals.
