"I don’t know what you came to do, but I want to do it with you".
"Feel the heat of passion, baby, light up the night"

We’re hard at work preparing our songs for Big Band Movies and Shows Featuring La La Land at Dickens Pub. Curating the event has been great fun. Of course we want to focus on great jazz music, and feature La La La Land, while ensuring the music shows off our vocalists, soloists, and the genre. Here are some of the shows, can you guess the names of the songs?
