Roseville Big Band with the Rosetones
Commemorative Air Force Spring Big Band Hangar Dance, May 19, 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.

Fleming Field was one of several Twin Cities areas hit by severe weather Saturday evening. Before the hangar doors were partially closed, hail blew as far into the hangar as the vocalists' platform.

Set One (8:30-9:15): We planned to start at 8:00 but started late because of a power outage in S. St. Paul. A generator provided power for the first few songs, until the power returned.

Cindy Gardner and Charlie Lambert from TC Swing gave free swing dance lessons from 7:00 to 7:30, when the power went out.

This was the first time we've had a power outage due to weather, although there were a few past dances in the 1990's at which the band's power went out briefly due to overloading an electrical circuit.

About 900 people attended the dance.

We sold six CDs - one to a dancer and five to the CAF for their store.
