USO Canteen Style

Hotel Wolverine Band performs for Aileen Brazeau's residents.To celebrate independence day, Aileen Brazeau’s residents and guests at San Clemente Villas were treated to a WWII, USO Canteen style celebration.  The event featured all the hallmarks of an authentic evening at a small town USO including  music, food, refreshments and dancing in honor of Independence Day on Monday, July 4th.

The festivities took place in the spacious San Clemente Villas lobby and patio area just outside.  Dance music was provided by Frank Sano’s Hotel Wolverine Band.  The Hotel Wolverine Jazz Band is a seven piece traditional jazz group consisting of Cornet, Clarinet, Trombone, Piano, Tuba or Bass, Drums and Banjo or Guitar.  They perform music from the tuneful era of the 1920’s, the 1930’s and through the war years of the mid-1940’s.

Their repertoire consists of very danceable/listenable songs to take attendees back to those memorable musical years. Highlights include such favorites as “Sentimental Journey” “Ain’t Misbehavin” “Washington & Lee Swing” “It Had To Be You” “All of Me” “Don’t Sit Under The Apple Tree” “Five Foot Two” and “Bye Bye Blues”.

As is often the case, Aileen opened the event to members of the local community as well.   Did you know that the USO is still supporting our troops?  You can  click here to support the USO.
