Welcome to the Vaughn Monroe Society Website

Vaughn Wilton Monroe



The Big Band Era. Swing. World War II. The optimism of post-war America. This was the culture and times in which Vaughn Monroe lived and worked at the height of his career, and which his contributions had a hand in shaping.


For those of us too young to remember, Vaughn Monroe was one of the popular male vocalists to come out of the big band phenomenon. He had a rich baritone voice that he used masterfully. He played trumpet and trombone with the same virtuosity. His 6-foot frame and likable personality put him out in front of the orchestra and behind the baton.


Many a young couple fell in love to Monroe's crooning of some sentimental melody. The list of his hit songs is as long as the memories that his music invokes for those of us who were there.




Vaughn Monroe has to be the most popular singing bandleader there has ever been. There have been numerous bandleaders who have sung, and been blessed with good voices, but regardless of their abilities, their vocal offerings came second to their conducting fame. Vaughn Monroe was the exception -- a bandleader who, in the public perception, was first and foremost a singer.
