WMKV Radio brings Harry James Orchestra to Music Hall Ballroom

On Tuesday, October 13, from 7-10:00 p.m., the legendary Harry James Orchestra will fill historic Music Hall Ballroom with music from the swing era and beyond. The Harry James Orchestra, led by Fred Radke, performs a one-night only dance and concert as part of WMKV Public Radio’s 20th Anniversary celebration. The three-hour dance and concert will benefit public radio WMKV 89.3FM which is simulcast on 89.9FM WLHS. Tickets are $30 ($35 day of show) and can be purchased at the Aronoff Center and Music Hall Ticket Offices, by calling (513)621-2787, or online at http://www.cincinnatiarts.org. Discount parking for $3.00 is also available.

“The Harry James Orchestra is known for being one of the best swing dance bands on tour,” says WMKV station director George Zahn. “Dancers of all ages fill the floor at their concerts, and we plan on Cincinnati’s dancers showing up in force and filling Music Hall Ballroom’s 22,000 square-foot dance floor.”

The Harry James Orchestra is led by trumpeter Fred Radke. A conductor, composer, arranger and recording artist with his own Swingin’ Big Band, Radke played lead trumpet under Harry James himself, a “dream come true” for the then young musician. In 1989, six years after James’ death, the Harry James Estate and Columbia Artists asked Radke to lead the Harry James Orchestra for a 50th anniversary concert. He has been leading the orchestra ever since.

In the words of Harry James, “Band leaders must be like automobile manufacturers before the war. They must be bringing out new models all the time. We have to vary our programs, playing sweet numbers and jump numbers, and we have to play them different ways.” This philosophy still drives today’s Harry James Orchestra, which tours throughout the United States and Canada. Radke also produced and recorded classic Harry James Orchestra hits in a four-volume set entitled Reminiscing, featuring Radke and his Swingin’ Big Band.

The Harry James Orchestra concert for WMKV 89.3FM Public Radio is made possible by the support of Mercedes Benz of Ft. Mitchell, MyMedicareQuestion.com and ArtsWave.

Classic big band music returns to one of its true Cincinnati homes on October 30, 2013 as WMKV 89.3FM and WLHS 89.9FM bring The One and Only Tommy Dorsey Orchestra to Music Hall Ballroom. The event will be a concert and dance that is emceed by the famous John Morris Russell with a large open dance floor. Tickets are currently on sale.

“We’re excited to bring this unique music to an historic location,” says WMKV Development Director Bob Hanneken, “Our goal is to preserve big band music, and if this has good attendance, there are some other big bands we’d love to bring in.”

The One and Only Tommy Dorsey Orchestra is the national touring big band that travels the U.S. They are appearing for the three-hour concert and dance to benefit public radio WMKV 89.3FM which is simulcast on 89.9FM WLHS. The stations offer big bands and standards, plus classic radio shows, and talk for seniors and families.

This is WMKV’s first effort to bring a big band to Music Hall ballroom. WMKV and WLHS have continued to present national touring orchestras, including the Glenn Miller Orchestra, the Harry James Orchestra, and the Artie Shaw Orchestra, in recent years. The larger venue can accommodate enough audience so that WMKV can entertain the notion of bringing in possible future concerts with the Duke Ellington and Count Basie Orchestras.

“This has been a great home for so many music events over the years, it’s a natural fit,” adds WMKV Station Director George Zahn, “This is classic big band music in a classic venue.”
