The Big Swing Sound at St Matthew's

By Staff

November 2nd, 2022



There was a time when the sound from big big bands floated across the lake from the Brant Inn.

Big name stars would arrive by train, spend a day, sometimes a full weekend in town.

At the time the community was dry – no alcohol was sold.

The Gazette once heard from a reader who put himself through university selling liquor from the trunk of his car.

It was certainly a different town then.

The big band sound will return for a day later in November
