Big Band leader Doc Scantlin whirls, fifteen musicians swing back and forth with their instruments, The crowd cheers.

Everyone's dancing with smiles on their faces brought on by the infectious energy dapper Doc Scantlin exudes in his white tie, tails, spats and slicked down hair. He beckons you back in time to a Harlem nightclub with his "Bandanna Babies", dancing girls gyrating sensuously in the flirty chorus girl outfits. Or to some elegant, romantic ballroom with his soloist in her long evening gown caressing the microphone singing a sultry ballad. Or to the left bank, with Little Chou Chou the effervescent cabaret singer, singing and weaving among the tables as patrons blow bubbles or feel the magic of her wand.

Doc's whole ensemble offers a memorable evening of musical entertainment. From the 1920's speakeasy numbers such as "Puttin' On The Ritz" and the "Charleston" through the romantic, elegant 1930's of Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, George Gershwin, and the wonderful swing era of Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, etc... He has played hundreds of the biggest and best balls, special events, weddings, private parties, fund raisers and concerts, appearing throughout the U.S. and Europe.
