Noted for their close harmonies and synchronized dance steps, the Andrews Sisters epitomized the “we’re all in this together” spirit of the war years, and their optimistic songs and exuberance made them ideal morale boosters. The Victory Belles are proud to pay tribute to this talented trio, who volunteered so much time entertaining our troops here and abroad. Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree, I’ll Be With You in Apple Blossom Time, and Chattanooga Choo Choo are just a few of the signature favorites you’ll hear in this upbeat Canteen salute.
