Watch: International Sweethearts of Rhythm

Picture of International Sweethearts of Rhythm

I posted this video today for those of you that might not be familiar with The International Sweethearts of Rhythm. Led by Anna Mae Winburn and Tiny Davis, they were the first integrated all women's band in the United States. During the 1940s the band featured some of the best female musicians of the day.

The video below is a collection of film clips that were put together of some performances by The International Sweethearts of Rhythm.  See for yourself how much this great band could truly Swing!

If you are curious about other all-female bands that were performing in the Big Band Era, I suggest looking up: Ina Ray Hutton and Her Melodears, Lorraine Page and her Orchestra, Rita Rio (aka Dona Drake) and Her Band and The Darlings of Rhythm to just name a few.
