The Ted Lewis Museum pays tribute to Coalton, Ohio’s own composer & bandleader in I’ll See You In My Dreams: The Music of Isham Jones.

“I’ll See You In My Dreams,” “It Had To Be You,” “Swinging Down the Lane,” “The One I Love (Belongs To Somebody Else)” “You’ve Got Me Crying Again,” “On The Alamo” “No Greater Love”: these songs that created the soundtrack of the 1920s and 1930s were all composed by the same man, Isham Jones. Jones had one of the top bands in the country, recording hundreds of records that vied in popularity with Paul Whiteman and Ted Lewis. He was also a successful songwriter, penning over a hundred songs, a feat unmatched by any other bandleader.

Don’t miss this concert celebrating Jones’ compositions from his first published song in 1908 through 1936. Featuring historic arrangements performed by Joseph Rubin and his 11-piece orchestra, along with vocalists Matt Tolentino and Rachel Will. Thrill to the music of this Ohio native that set the nation dancing in honor of Isham Jones’ 125th birthday!
