-The 1940 Air Terminal Museum is pleased to present The Manhattan Dolls-


The Manhattan Dolls are a New York City based 1940s swing-style female vocal trio with the sound of The Andrews Sisters. Started by former USO Girl Heather Stricker-Dispensa, The Dolls travel the world performing for military events, air shows, award ceremonies, parades, jazz clubs, concert series, you name it! They have been featured on BBC Radio London as well as several television appearances, most recently on The Tucson Morning Blend and LX 4 New York. They have the pleasure of performing with famous bands including The Jive Aces, The Royal Air Force Academy Band and The Stan Rubin Orchestra. The Manhattan Dolls will be performing their popular 40’s swing show, ‘Sentimental Journey’.

From the group’s website “Hop aboard the *Chattanooga Choo Choo* and join The Manhattan Dolls on a *Sentimental Journey* through the great music of the 30s and 40s. Sit back and enjoy these timeless classics, or if you’re *In the Mood* get up and dance! Sentimental Journey blends beautiful ballads with your favorite toe-tapping tunes, and of course, in classic USO fashion, takes some time to honor our brave men and women in the military.

From boogie woogie to the blues, Sentimental Journey celebrates the best the Great American Songbook has to offer.”
