    This video portrays the big-band era in American entertainment, profiling the Lee Williams Band which, from 1938 to 1952, barnstormed throughout the Midwest, bringing Swing music to rural America. Traveling by bus, the band played more than 3,500 one night stands, including a record 362 nights in one year! Filmed at a thirty-year reunion performance, the video includes interviews with band members, archival footage and photos, and nostalgic performances of classic wartime tunes, to portray a golden era of entertainment ended by the arrival of television.
