5/30: Dean Mora and his Orchestra at LA's Cicada Club

This week Dean and I met up at the Fort MacArthur Museum in San Pedro, CA, where Museum Director and Curator Steve Nelson took us inside the old fort and supplied us with some handsome uniforms for our Sunday appearance at the Cicada Club downtown. It's an honor to wear this original issue WWII uniform and should add a little extra punch to Irving Berlin's booster song, "Any Bonds Today" and a swell new dance band arrangement of "If I Loved You."
