Big band history is traditionally told through the eyes of bandleaders. Vocalists are often footnotes. The BandChirps project is an attempt to retell that history through the stories of those whose voices gave it life.
BandChirps is used by researchers and big band enthusiasts alike. If you find BandChirps entertaining or valuable, please consider helping to support it by making a donation.
Donations go to offset the costs of maintaining this website and subscriptions to newspaper archive services, and the immense amount of time it takes to do research. Help me keep this site running and ad-free. Donations are currently accepted through Paypal.
Thanks for your support!
