Almost 25 years ago, the music of Motown traveled around the globe, landing in Sydney, Australia where four high school students interested in soul, gospel and harmony formed a singing group that began as a tribute to their love of a cappella doo wop. Today, Human Nature is Australia’s leading pop vocal group. Their chart-topping Motown tribute, Reach Out, went five-times-platinum, and their versions of Motown classics are faithful, yet updated and fresh.

He went on to star in two long-running TV sitcoms, namely The Bob Newhart Show and Newhart, and appeared in film roles such as the loveable Papa Elf in Elf.

Over the past century, few entertainers have achieved the legendary status of William H.

On radio, in theaters, and in ballrooms, Big Bands were drawing record crowds during the 1940s Swing era. Vocal groups and soloists sang a repertoire of great songs, and for the last time in the 20th century, the entire country shared a common popular music. In-the-mood-photo This body of song did much to sustain national morale during World War II, the pivotal event of the 1940s. The National Archives in Washington, DC brought In The Mood to their audiences as part of their commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of WWII, and the response was extraordinary.


In 1993, the Archives presented a repeat performance, out-of-doors on Constitution Avenue. Thousands attended, and many stayed to dance the night away. As a result, In The Mood, in affiliation with the USO, began a series of tours which played to audiences across the US. The show’s association with the National Archives and the USO was altogether appropriate, for much of the underpinning research was drawn from resources of these national organizations.


In 1997 the In The Mood Singers and Dancers and the String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra was selected as part of the entertainment for one of the Inaugural Balls at the 53rd Presidential Inauguration for President and Mrs. Bill Clinton.

The show’s 20th anniversary year continues to portray the spirit of the music that moved the nation’s spirit for audiences throughout the US and overseas. In The Mood is a testament to the music and lyrics of America that is timeless.
