The Vic-Tones, a dynamic male vocal trio with their own distinctive sound, are the newest addition to The National WWII Museum’s entertainment roster! These talented singers celebrate the music of the 1940s. Swing, big band, jazz, Latin, and country music dominated and defined this decade, and the Vic-Tones bring it all to life in BB’s Stage Door Canteen. You’ll swoon and swing to the harmonic vocal stylings of ageless classics like Chattanooga Choo Choo, Way Down Yonder in New Orleans, Pistol Packin’ Mama, The Way You Look Tonight, and I’ll Be Seeing You, among many others.
The story of how Bob Hope gave levity and laughter to troops during one of the most brutal conflicts in human history is a crucial component of the history of the war—and a demonstration of how humanity can shine through in the darkest of times. The National WWII Museum is proud to have BB's Stage Door Canteen performances supported by the Bob & Dolores Hope Foundation. If you are a veteran of any war, you may be eligible for free show-only tickets to BB's Stage Door Canteen performances. Please call our box office at 504-528-1943 for more information.
