Big G And The Cool Cats Swing Band, featuring Big George Whittam and vocalist Barbara Kovachs, promise you a great performance. The band covers a wide range of music for all generations from Glenn Miller and Duke Ellington to Earth, Wind And Fire and Brian Setzer. This talented group of musicians performs all over the tri-state area including Sunnybrook, the largest dance hall east of Chicago. The band is full of energy and George says he is determined to get his audience on their feet, dancing in the park. As leader of the band, George likes to share interesting facts with his audience. Come out, bring a guest and enjoy the show

The festival is on Sunday, July 19 at Everhart Park, West Chester and there will be people selling crafts, tethered hot air balloon rides, and other things to do.
