Nick Hilscher spends most of his days on a tour bus with a 16 piece orchestra. Some nights, the band ends up at a symphony hall, while the next night they might play at a ball room or a high school theater.

“Last night, we were in Woodward, Iowa, on the bus on a normal paved road. Then we took a left turn and ended up driving on gravel through miles of cornfields. The fields opened up and we saw this great old ballroom,” he said. Hilsher had arrived at Lake Robbins Ballroom, built in 1931. The historic building was the perfect setting for the Glenn Miller Orchestra to belt out favorites from the Big Band Era.
