Soundie: "Boardwalk Boogie"

Picture of Will Bradley and His Orchestra

Today's Soundie features Will Bradley and His Orchestra performing "Boardwalk Boogie."  Such a great song.  The Soundie itself was filmed in 1941, and filmed quite well capturing a great band in it's prime as well as some very good dancing. While watching this you can feel the raw energy that defined the Will Bradley Orchestra.

There are some big names that appear in this clip including: Ray McKinley, Freddie Slack, Peanuts Hucko and, of course, Will Bradley himself.  This song was originally titled "This Little Icky Went to Town" but was later changed to "Boardwalk Boogie" for this Soundie.
