THE MUSICAL BATTLE OF THE CENTURY!!!

For the first time ever, Michael Gamble and the Rhythm Serenaders Big Band will battle the Jonathan Stout Orchestra. 80+ years ago at the Savoy Ballroom there was an infamous Big Band Battle between Benny Goodman and Chick Webb. Another famous battle took place a year later between Chick Webb and Count Basie. People talked about these battles for years! Be there to witness in person this once in a lifetime epic battle!
