My wife and I attended a performance by the Glenn Miller Orchestra Tuesday night October 16th at the historic Elsinore Theater in Salem Oregon. It was a great show. Led by Nick Hilscher, the band sounded fantastic. I’m in my forties so I grew up listening to disco and 80’s music but having seen the Glenn Miller Story as a child I have always been a huge fan especially “Little Brown Jug” and the emotions behind that song, whether that part of the story is true or not doesn’t matter anymore. If you get a chance they were well worth the price.
The theater itself is beautiful and it also brought back some of my “Star Wars” memories. Waiting in line around the corner, then to find out Darth Vader was Luke’s father…AWESOME! The sound was excellent although at times when Nick was trying to speak while the band played he was hard to hear. I had forgotten about the sloped side walkways until I needed to use the facilities at intermission. The lobby was a nice place to have a drink and people watch. The only problem I saw was that the seats may be the same ones I sat on it the 70’s and 80’s. That was a minor issue though.
