In 1958, four teenagers approached Paul Colaluca and asked for his help in forming a dance band in the likeness of Glenn Miller, to learn the big band swing style of the WWII era. It was Stan Kenton who suggested to Paul that the training program become a non-profit foundation, giving many generations of students access to and training in big band swing music. The Esquire Music Foundation was formally established in 1967, and The Fabulous Esquires Big Band continues swingin' the tunes through out the Los Angeles area!
