An Old Time Radio (OTR) Swingin’ Christmas with Dock Side Drive
Step back in time to the days of ballroom dancing and Old Time Radio hour shows with this classic dinner theatre show celebrating the Christmas season. Dock Side Drive, Victoria based swing and show band, will usher audiences back to the era of the OTR style radio show, featuring the music and sounds of some of the great original Christmas classics. MC’d by a resident radio host, the show invites guests to be members of the “live audience” as a part of the Christmas Eve broadcast. The dance floor, as well as the airwaves, will be open and guests are invited to fully experience the nostalgia of the golden-age of music and entertainment with a modern-day style and sound.
Dock Side Drive is one of the West Coast’s hottest swing & show bands. Fresh off theatre and festival performances through BC, this dynamic band entertains audiences with a blend of vocal and instrumental tunes spanning more than six decades of song. You won’t want to miss the chance to see and hear this ensemble performing well-known Christmas classics plus swing, blues, jazz and show tunes! It’s guaranteed you’ll be dancin’ and singin’ along!
“Dock Side Drive, with a musical repertoire that spanned decades and explored many genres, entertained with wonderful harmonies and witty repartee. They were a great choice for our gala evening event; elegant and entertaining.” PAMELA BURNS, Executive Director, Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre, Vernon, BC
“…As one audience member put it, ‘You hit the jackpot with these guys!’… A fantastic night of ‘big band’ style jazz and swing. Powerhouse vocals, riveting instrumentals, a wonderful richness & class to the whole show. – DEB RENZ, General Manager, Sid Williams Theatre
