March 25, 2018 - Glenn Miller Orchestra featuring the Flyboys
The first Glenn Miller Orchestra did not make it at all. It was a total and absolute economic failure. But Glenn knew what he wanted, held to that dedication and relentlessly worked to succeed. He launched his second band – the one that lives on today – in March of 1938. The Glenn Miller Orchestra has been a “hit” ever since. The legendary Glenn Miller was one of the most successful of all dance bandleaders back in the Swing Era of the 1930’s and 40’s. Glenn disbanded his musical organization in 1942 at the height of its popularity to volunteer for the Army. There, he organized and led the famous Glenn Miller Army Air Force Band. It went to Europe to entertain servicemen performing numerous live and radio shows. On December 15, 1944, Major Miller took off in a single engine plane from Europe to precede his band to France, disappearing over the English Channel, never to be seen again. Today, the 18 member ensemble continues to play many of the original Miller arrangements both from the civilian band and the AAFB libraries. Just as it was in Glenn’s day, the Glenn Miller Orchestra today is still the most sought after big band in the world. The Flyboys are a unique four piece vocal group featuring effortless vocals and sublime harmonies, reminiscent of the Four Freshmen and TAKE 6. Their sound and class will whisk you back to the golden age of big bands and jazz groups of the 30s and 40s, but this is where vintage meets modern. In a fusion of unforgettable showmanship, picture Pharrell Williams crooning with Judy Garland, Ricky Martin meets Cab Calloway, and Maroon 5 grooving with Ella Fitzgerald. The FlyBoys features world class performers from London’s West End who have appeared in shows such as Evita, Spamalot, Mamma Mia, Once, Ghost, and many, many more! Audiences have not only raved about the show but have come back for the second performance to experience it all over again. There is nobody in the world doing what these guys do. If you are looking for something utterly special and incredibly unique then look no further. Performing timeless classics alongside their own brand of modern jazz and swing, they will give you a night you’ll never forget! Four amazing singers – One unique sound!

Other Coral Reefer Band members that can appear include MIKE UTLEY, ROBERT GREENIDGE, DOYLE GRISHAM, AMY LEE, FINGERS TAYLOR, TC MITCHELL, and others depending on their tour schedule with Jimmy. According to the Coral Reefers, “ADVENTURES IN PARROTDISE is the next best thing to being at one of Jimmy Buffett’s concerts.” This is the only Jimmy Buffett tribute show to play an indefinite engagement in a main showroom at a major Las Vegas Hotel/Casino. It is also the first choice for major corporate events at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Las Vegas. Not a Parrot-Head? You will be when this show is over. Fins up!

When you look out over the landscape of tribute bands, you may notice that there are a lot them dedicated to Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, The Big Bopper and their infamous Winter Dance Party. So you might wonder, what is so different about Not Fade Away? Not Fade Away was created out of survival, but not the survival of the players in the band. The band’s young members have played to audiences in national tours and regional productions of various shows. Not Fade Away was created out of the survival of this incredible, legendary and important music created well over 50 years ago. Having also been a part of many standard tribute shows, Not Fade Away wants to create a new show that will keep this music relevant, give it edge, bring it into today’s music scene, while not forgetting the importance of the music’s place in history and the impact it had on the world. They’re not just looking to dwell on “The Day the Music Died”. These greats were more than their last night on earth, they were the pioneers of rock n’ roll. They gifted an energetic new kind of music, changing the landscape for an entire generation of music listeners and music makers alike.
