    Quoted from Cash_Riprock:

    Not sure if you're hip to this one but its a gooder! » YouTube video
    Red Foley Pinball Boogie.

    Another good one! I can't wait to play these for my kids tonight. They will give me the 'eye roll', and I will tell them how it kicks the crap out of their music...and hijinks will ensue!

    Louis Jordan. Hands down.

    Can't go wrong with a good ol' western theme.

    Quoted from PINBELL:

    My dad played guitar for Bob Wills in the early 50's!

    Wow! I bet your dad has some great memories/stories from his time with Bob Wills.

    Quoted from CaptK:

    He left Ga. For Texas in 1951, right after he traded his Gibson for a new solid-body guitar, a Telecaster!
    He played in Velasco TX, on the beach in a place called The Beach Corral. They played Western swing and all the big stars would play there. Dad played with Bob, tex Ritter, Merle Travis, among others! When he played with Merle, he asked to play dad's Telecaster, and told about how he helped Leo Fender design that guitar! I have many pictures, but I have to figure out how to upload them.

    Here's a few pictures! In the Bob Wills pic, my dad is on the right! In the pic with Merle and Tex, my dad is bending over in the front(don't know whyimage.jpg image-947.jpg image-299.jpg

    O-Din REALLY needs to go on vacation methinks...

    I'll play though Spicoli since this is kinda my trickeration!
    The title of the thread is kinda narrow-ish in scope since most of the bands listed on the previous page were well established/playing bEfOrE the 40's but, it's copacetic; I get what you're trying to lay down.
    Too many good bands to choose from!
    I think it would be a cool idea to make multiple machines based on the most popular spots of the swing era and each machine would have a theme reflecting the decor as well as the bands that played there.
    Example:
    Savoy Ballroom's machine could have a Chick Webb Gretsch-Gladstone drum set bash toy, bandstand ball lock, lindy hopper centrifuge, "cutting contest" riffin' ramps/diverters, Ella Fitzgerald spinners (that scat when hit), bouncer bumpers, etc...etc...
    I could go on and on about each machine's layout/music selection but you'd probably put me on perma-ignore faster than you could say "F@&!'N SCREEN DOOR!"

    I guess if you're asking though O-Din,
    This would be a strong contender in my house-o-roonie.

    Hawkmoon,adds,I think a pin with all the stars in the 40s swing group would work,cab calloway calling out his jive,gene krupa on skins.slim stroking,and don't forget,mr.B.B.King,muddy watters,albert king,the blues were there too!!

    However,i apologise for what I'm about to say,But,i really don't think early country fits a pin theme,unless you constantly wear your silver dollar belt buckle,stetson cowboy hat,and smelly leather boots every day<followed with your turquise string tie
