When he reformed his own dance band in the late 1940s, Tommy Dorsey said that it was about time that somebody got "things" going again.
"You ca't expect to have any real interest in dance bands if the bands don't go round the country and play for the kids," said Dorsey, who was known as the "Sentimental Gentleman of Swing."
Now, almost 60 years later, the band that bears his name will bring the music that influenced "America's Greatest Generation" to Lancaster. Its goal has changed little as it reaches out to attract a new generation of listeners.
