The return of The George Gee SWING46 Big Band First Thursdays with the 17 piece dance orchestra tribute to the 1940s Swing Era! The Internationally-renown GEORGE GEE SWING ORCHESTRA from New York City. While he was a Freshman at Carnegie Mellon University (1978) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, George Gee launched his Make-Believe Ballroom program (named after the vintage Martin Block show) on the college radio station - and told everyone whod listen about his dream of leading his own big band. In an era when punk, new wave and heavy metal ruled, some first thought that George was revisiting the past. Thirty-five years later, it is delightfully clear that George was just way ahead of his time!
