Vintage Vocal Quartet

The Sanctuary, 82 Main St, Maynard, MA

The Vintage Vocal Quartet will be singing and swinging in Maynard, MA. The Vintage Vocal Quartet is coming to fill your ears and your heart with the sweet swinging sounds of the Big Band Era.

The 1930s and 1940s hit the sweet spot when swing music, jazz music, and pop music were all one and the same. It was a time when every radio blared out music that was danceable yet sophisticated.

The Vintage Vocal Quartet is dialed in to the sound of groups like Glenn Miller’s Modernaires, the Nat King Cole Trio, the Andrews Sisters, and Tommy Dorsey’s Pied Pipers, as well as singers like Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Johnny Mercer, and Jo Stafford.
