Big band music featuring Shelbyville HS singer at The Strand in July

The Strand welcomes back The Sound of Dreams Big Band.  


Under the leadership of Ron Duncan, this 17 piece big band will bring the sounds of the era back to the Strand.    The repertoire includes all your favorites plus music from today.   The band will feature Shelbyville High School student McKenna Hall.


"I am very grateful for the opportunity to perform with the Sounds of Dreams Big Band and I'm so excited to be back on the Strand's stage!   It is going to be a great show!", said Hall.

Sounds of Dreams has a spirit of being laid back but full of energy. The members of the band are incredible musicians, all team players, full of encouragement and humor. When you hear and see the band – there is a real sense of joy coming from the bandstand.

Ron Duncan says, "Seventeen musicians bring back the sounds of Glen Miller, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and Stan Kenton. Add our outstanding vocalists and we add a special touch to The Great American Songbook. We stay current with musical selections from newer performers like Nora Jones, Diana Krall and Michael Buble’. Dreams do come true. I have heard them when I was young and am leading them today."


Tickets are available online at or locally at Mickey's T-Mart.
