Our Big Band Benefit for the Natatorium was a huge success: Great crowd, great music, great dancing, and a great time for all. The Harry James Orchestra, led by the superb Fred Radke, was in terrific form.
We know that so many of our off-island friends and supporters really wanted to be there. Since you couldn’t come to the show, now we’re bringing the show to you! We sent a camera out onto the dance floor and right up to the bandstand. Here’s an excerpt from the hugely popular “Take the ‘A’ Train:”
Thanks to everyone who made this great night possible! Among others: the Honolulu Elks Lodge; the hardworking members of the Friends of the Natatorium board; videographer Scott Wong; Fred Radke, Gina Funes and the entire Harry James Orchestra; and especially all those swinging dancers, big band fans and Natatorium supporters who made Aug. 11 a night to remember. MAHALO!!!!!!
