I don't seem to have heard about this (maybe I missed it).Dean Mora Day at Disneyland!
Monday, January 9, 2012
Maxwell DeMille invites you to DEAN MORA DAY at Disneyland. At noon let's meet at the flagpole on Main Street to enjoy the debut of Dean Mora's Music at Disneyland, USA! The tired old recorded music of Main Street will be replaced by Dean Mora's fresh new "old time" music!
From Dean Mora:
"Okay, the truth can now be told: Last spring I was contacted by the folks at Disney Imagineering to record a new music loop for Disneyland's Main Street, to replace the old one that had been playing at the Park for some 20 years.
So during the summer I helped to select the new lineup of songs to be recorded -- we kept about half of the previous song list, and added new "old" songs (including Maple Leaf Rag and Alexander's Ragtime Band) as well as the "Married Life" tune from the movie "UP".
For the arrangements, I used a good number of period arrangements, in addition to my own arrangements (as well as a handful of charts from trombonist Jim McMillen). We recorded all the tracks at Capitol Studios back in September, and now I can say with a good degree of certainty that the new music loop will start playing at the Park beginning Monday morning, January 9th.
Thanks to all the musicians who helped make this project possible, as well as the production staff at Disney Imagineering. We hope you all enjoy our music at the Park for many years to come."
Vintage attire optional!
See you at Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom.
All the best,
Are they really replacing the Main Street USA loops?
