"The Finest Hour" is a look back at the music that ended WWII. The music was anchored by swing, big band and jazz and helped define an era when nations clashed around the world. Music built morale and provided comfort to soldiers and civilians alike. And for those without access to a radio, the U.S. War Department sent recordings overseas for soldiers. “We’re making these V-Discs just for you,” the Andrews Sisters say on a disc addressing U.S. troops. “And along with them, we wanna send all our love and kisses” in a recording of “The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.”

This very special performance joins two spectacular groups: Davina and the Vagabonds, who brought the house down in their debut at Wharton Center in 2018, and the swinging music of the Hot Club of Cowtown. They come together and step into a wondrous musical time machine to cut a rug, celebrate the Greatest Generation and hear the music that got us through.
