A wailing sax, a foot-stomping swing tune, a sweet serenade? The 1940s just wouldn’t be the same without the music!

During the war, the all-girl swing bands entertained America. Elvira Slate Investigations honors these hard-working, talented and brave women musicians through the fictional all-girl swing bands that feature in the novels. These are The Charmettes, Wanda and the Charms, and The Honey Duchesses. The wonderful Wanda Carter is band leader and singer.
