Big Band Hangar Dance 2019

We’re bringing the party back to the Military Aviation Museum, with Grace Street Seven and Theresa Eaman performing your favorite old time tunes against the backdrop of aviation history. With a few new twists this year, put on your best vintage duds for a fantastic blast to the past.

Featuring live music from Grace Street Seven and Theresa Eaman, silent auctions and costume contest!

The Big Band Hangar Dance is a fundraiser for the Military Aviation Museum, and your ticket supports our mission to preserve historic aircraft and educate new generations about our military aviation heritage.

Your dinner experience this year is brought to you by Atlantic Shores. Enjoy a gourmet three course meal while Theresa Eaman serenades you through a culinary adventure, then join the party and dance the night away to Grace Street Seven.
