To the delight of Hepcats, Lindy Hoppers and lovers of Swing Jazz, the brassy, all-singing, all-dancing, all-American 1940s musical revue, In The Mood is coming to Rockford in celebration of its 20th season.
Hop aboard the "Chattanooga Choo Choo" and you'll soon be "In the Mood" to hear some great musicians "Sing, Sing, Sing." Much more than just a concert, In the Mood is a fully staged tribute to Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman and the big band greats of the '40s.
