Wayback Machine: 1937

| No Comments
Step into the Divaville Lounge on Sunday, November 20 from 2-4 pm as we celebrate the year 1937! Swing was all the rage, with Benny Goodman as its pre-eminent performer. Bing was the king of popular music. Count Basie made his first solo recordings. Billie Holiday met Lester Young. Then-unknowns, Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald began their singing careers, while young talent Judy Garland got her first big break. And on a sad note, both George Gershwin and Bessie Smith died that year. We'll hear these musical milestones and many more, as we spend two hours exploring the year 1937 in music.
