Roseville Big Band with the Rosetones
Commemorative Air Force Bomber's Moon Ball, September 8, 2012

Led by Glen Newton

Songs in red are available on the Roseville Big Band Concert in the Park (+8) CD. Songs crossed out like this were on the original list but were skipped due to lack of time. Songs in Italics were added by audience request.

Before the dance, Jerry Hahn of the Commemorative Air Force told the audience about the CAF and asked how many were attending a CAF hangar dance for the first time. About 1-4 to 1/3 of the people in the hangar raised their hands. Jerry's introduction ended by asking everyone to face the flag and sing The Star-Spangled Banner with us. (Karen led the singing.)
