Watch: Truckin' by Ina Ray Hutton

Picture of Ina Ray Hutton

Today's video features Ina Ray Hutton and Her Melodears performing a great version of "Truckin".  This film is from the mid-1930's.  I'm guessing about 1936-37 but I could be wrong.

This energy filled clips captures Ina Ray and all of her talent. Just watch her as she glides across the floor waving that baton. She led this "All-Girl" orchestra until about 1939.  Starting in 1940, she led an "All-Male" orchestra which was pretty good too.  George Paxton had a heavy influence on the later band.
