"Artie Shaw, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, the Dorsey Brothers, and Harry James.
These music legends, these geniuses, and their unforgettable sounds, live on today right here in our hometown!
These golden sounds of yesteryear come alive again every week during rehearsals at the Albert A. Chatigny Sr. Community Recreation Center.
That’s where Eli’s Big Band hits the stage and when time itself seemingly stops …” begins the latest Minute Video by the City of Beaumont.
