Glenn Miller Orchestra to perform in Bunbury on Friday, October 4

The Glenn Miller Orchestra will journey to Bunbury later this week, as part of its fifth Western Australian tour.

Led by Rick Gerber, the group will deliver one not-to-be-missed performance at the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre on Friday, October 4.

The two-hour "brand new concert spectacular" will see 24 musicians, dancers, and singers on stage throughout the night.

The group will entertain concert-goers with classics from the 1930s and 40s, including Chattanooga Choo-Choo, In the Mood, Tuxedo Junction, Moonlight Serenade, Little Brown Jug,and Pennsylvania 6-5000.

After the show, the orchestra will head to Perth before travelling around Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria.

Presented by ATA AllStar Artists, the tour proudly celebrates the original Glenn Miller Orchestra's 82nd Anniversary.

Enjoying his time in Bunbury and the South-West, Gerber promises a night of fun and nostalgia.

"We've always had very good audiences in Australia. The people are just wonderful, they're very enthusiastic," he said.

"We really enjoy performing live music and entertaining audiences around the world."

With Gerber's help, 41 of the original Glenn Miller Orchestra members came together for a special event, at the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Museum, in 1986.

He and the new-look orchestra have been touring and performing together over the past two decades.

"The Glenn Miller Orchestra really came into prominence in the Spring of 1939 - a little over 80 years ago," he said.

"We enjoy keeping the music alive."
