Wow!! 25 years of touring – it’s hard to believe that IN THE MOOD has traveled East/West/North/South – all over our great country – 48 states (2 to go). And then 3 tours of Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Europe. Big cities and small towns makes us realize how fortunate we all are to do what we all love to do. Through the years over 500 artists – singers/dancers/ musicians and technicians have made it all happen. It has been a true pleasure to perform with some of the most talented and gracious people I know. Much applause to all involved with IN THE MOOD – past and present.

But where would we be without our audiences. Young and old alike everywhere continue to be thrilled as we relive the great music of the 1930s/1940s – the big band era. So thank you to all those who have taken a moment out of their daily lives to experience this jazzy, brassy, romantic and nostalgic show. Us up on the stage can feel the energy, see the smiles and even tears as this American music releases emotions for all in attendance and especially the part of the show that pays homage to our veterans – all heroes.

And for those that have never been to see IN THE MOOD – this show aspires to promote the memory of this most significant time in American history and continues to inspire audiences of all generations. For over 2 hours this big retro event holds you enthralled with its singers, dancers and period costumes, fine orchestral arrangements, vocalists delivering songs from the 30s and 40s, choreographed dance routines and sheer American pizzazz!

To top it all we are puttin' on our dancin' shoes and getting ready to start our 25th Silver Anniversary Tour including 4+ weeks in Australia - our 4th tour down under. Can’t wait to see our Aussie fans who just can’t get enough of IN THE MOOD. Goodonya!

However, before we “hop over” the Pacific we are starting off our tour at the wonderful Harris Center at Folsom Lake College in Folsom, CA in conjunction with the Folsom Lake Symphony under the direction of Maestro Peter Jaffe for 8 performances over the Labor Day Weekend. So for all you fans of IN THE MOOD in the San Francisco Bay Area including among others - San Jose, Walnut Creek, Livermore and Sacramento - this is your chance to celebrate our 25th Tour in style. Matinee and evening shows, discounts for groups of 10 or more – bring your friends - bring your family - this is a family show for kids from 8 to 98. Look at our calendar section to purchase your tickets.

With the glorious sounds of a symphony recreating the great Hollywood studio orchestras IN THE MOOD has taken on a new dimension. The orchestrations were supervised by famed Grammy Award winning arranger Marion Evans – it doesn’t get any better than this. As a reviewer in the Trenton Times stated after seeing IN THE MOOD with Symphony, "IN THE MOOD was the absolute finest musical production of the 1940s era I have ever seen. It represented the mood of the times and brought back memories both sad and uplifting and it all was reflected in the music". To hear a sample go to:

And I would be remiss in not recognizing and thanking our very talented director/choreographer who have been with IN THE MOOD for the past 10 years – Alex Sanchez, a veteran of 10 Broadway shows. It is a pleasure to watch a pro at work making IN THE MOOD come alive each year.

We are America's favorite big band musical – there’s nothing like it out there. It has been our thrill to continue the great tradition of the big bands as we celebrate America.

    IN THE MOOD is a celebration of the music of the 1930s & 40s – the Big Band era. It was the last time that all Americans were listening and dancing to the same kind of music. With our live sensational 13 piece String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra and our fabulous IN THE MOOD Singers and Dancers, the great melodies and lyrics that are still with us today are presented in a musical revue that is jazzy, sentimental, rhythmic, nostalgic and patriotic – all happening at the same time. With music arrangements, costumes and choreography IN THE MOOD is as authentic as it gets.
