The Victory Belles

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.

Complete with period costuming, signature bandstands and an abundant library of dance favorites, the band brings to life the music of Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Harry James and many others, The Victory Six is the Gulf South's premier 1940s swing band ensemble.
