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!

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.
