Things are hoppin’ at Doc and Chou Chou’s Bungalow on the Bay, as we get ready for our musical season ahead. Much to do, and we’re rarin’ to go, but, before we get into the swing of swingin’, we want to thank all our wonderful friends who made our events over this past season over-the-top fun! We live to make you happy, but, oh, how happy you make us! There were the balls and galas, romantic weddings, road trips and concerts, including almost being blown away by a summer storm, in an amphitheater build over the water, while the band played on. Chou Chou has announced the sand is finally all out of her little sequined shoes. There was the best of fun on the band bus, and the marathon sleepless back to back events. Doc lost his favorite sleeping cap somewhere along the way. Summer’s swan song couldn’t have been better: A standing-room-only 1000+ house of the greatest audience members ever, followed by a packed concert of guests old enough to remember the great music we play, and cheering like teenagers, while we brought it to life for them. We love how great music presented in an entertaining show appeals to all ages, but there is something really special about playing to those who remember it from the first time ’round. Then there is the tremendous joy of introducing young ones to the thrill of a live Big Band Orchestra for the very first time. Here’s to more fun to come! We’re always planning surprises along the way. Sometimes, there are surprises we don’t even plan, like, if you hang around after a show, if you’re really, really lucky, you may find this: Doc and George giving an impromptu country music performance after the show! Who knew?
