Continuing a tradition that began in the late 1970's when
Bob Lancette was the director, the Roseville Big Band played for Commemorative
(formerly Confederate) Air Force's fall hangar dance, the Bomber's Moon
Ball, September 21, 2002.
The hangar displays the side panels of World War II airplanes
featuring artwork. When the band plays at the hangar dances, Glen Newton
claims that his arrangement of "Sleepy Time Gal" was inspired
by this historic picture. More accurately, it was inspired by one of the
CAF members who gave him a copy of the sheet music.
