Down A Classic Country Road


Back in the 60's there were over 100 groups performing simultaneously throughout the U.S., all claiming to be Ink Spots, so popular was the music.  "If I Didn't Care", recorded in 1939 for Decca, sold 19 million copies and eventually became the seventh largest selling song in American popular music history.  If you enjoy mellow blended harmonies and energetic up-tempo swing tunes, then this jazzy show is just for you!
