Carnegie Hall, January 16, 1938- The Benny Goodman Orchestra swings its way into big band history. Gene Krupa, pounding out SING SING SING on the tom toms, made his own bit of big ban d history that night, changing the course of drumming forever. By the late 1930s Gene Krupa had emerged as a national phenomenon and his appearances on stage and film catapulted him to superstar status.

Now leading the new Gene Krupa Orchestra, accomplished musician Michael Berkowitz brings the Krupa magic back to life for a whole new generation.

Joining the orchestra is the current incarnation of The Four Freshmen, a group that had a profound influence on American Jazz and pop singing. The group began in 1948 as four students at Butler University in Indiana. They played nearly every college in the USA, performing in all
fifty states and 44 countries from Asia to Australia.
