The Notables Swing Band recently brought Betty Berger out of retirement to sing with the band. Betty led her own band for over 15 years, playing twice monthly at the River House here in Bend. Before that she had a 40 year career singing with bands in Southern California. Her vocals, backed by the 17 piece Notables Swing Band, really do take you back to the days when big bands with singers such as Doris Day, Peggy Lee, Helen Forrest and Ella Fitzgerald ruled the airwaves. We are sure you will appreciate what a great addition Betty Berger is to the band.
We all love playing the classic swing music popularized by musicians such as Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington and Count Basie. In that tradition, we have 17 members in order to make that characteristic full sound of a big band by offering the standard instrumentation of the early bands.
