Tuxedo Junction

Music by William Johnson and Erskine Hawkins and Julian Dash

Originally Performed by Glenn Miller

"Tuxedo Junction" is a popular song written by Erskine Hawkins, Bill Johnson, Julian Dash, and Buddy Feyne. The instrumental was a No. 1 hit for Glenn Miller and his Orchestra in 1940.

In the late 1930s Hawkins and his Orchestra were one of the house bands at the Savoy Ballroom. They alternated with the Chick Webb band, and often used "Tuxedo Junction" as their sign-off song before the next band would take the stage, so that the dancing would continue uninterrupted.

    Release Date: 1938
