The Victory Belles are a delightful vocal trio performing the music of the 1940s, serenading audiences at The National WWII Museum and across the globe. The music of the 1940s brought hope and joy to our GIs and those on the Home Front alike—and the Victory Belles keep that tradition alive in rich, three-part harmony. Their repertoire includes all the treasured gems of the WWII era plus patriotic classics including a musical salute to each branch of the US armed forces.
The Van Dells For years, the band has entertained audiences across the country with their fun and exciting tribute to the 50's and 60's. With impressive lead vocals, tight harmonies, and humor, they have been called "The Three Stooges set to music". This upbeat show is packed with comedy, choreography, and all the greatest hits. From Doo-Wop favorites to Motown classics, and everything in between, there's something for everyone to enjoy, including a memorable Elvis tribute and special "guest appearances" by Roy Orbison and The Duke of Earl. Backed by a full five piece band, their solid sound and fast-paced show will keep you smiling, clapping, and laughing the whole way through. The Van-Dells provide timeless entertainment that's fun for the whole family.
