Sentimental Journey

- Friday, December 27, 2013
The Sentimental Journey Band is a true and classic Big Band carrying on the tradition of the great dance bands of the Swing Era with music for dancing and listening pleasure. Playing in the style of, and in many instances the original songs of the Miller, Dorsey, Goodman, Count Basie and other great bands,  this professional seventeen-member band with vocalists brings back the Romance of the Dance from the golden days of the Big Band when Swing was King.

They will perform from 3:00 until 7:00 pm at The Omni Ballroom.

First Night Virginia is an annual community celebration of the arts that began in Charlottesville in 1982 and is the second oldest First Night in the country. 2014 is the 32nd annual festival of the arts with many family-friendly activities on and around the historic Downtown Mall.
