The Manhattan Dolls

Friday, September 18 at 8pm 

The Manhattan Dolls are a New York City based swing-style female vocal trio with the sound of the Andrews Sisters. Started by former USO Girls, the Dolls travel the world performing for military events, parades, and audiences like you. Their Sentimental Journey blends beautiful ballads with your favorite toe-tapping tunes, and of course, in classic USO fashion, takes time to honor our brave men and women in the military. From boogie-woogie to the blues, celebrate the best the Great American Songbook has to offer!

The Broadway Boys

This six-man super group is made up of Broadway actors who perform as “The Broadway Boys” in between productions. Their arrangements of the songs are fresh and innovative, breathing new life into old theatre standards!
