About Accentuate the Positive

An evening of the unforgettable music from the Great American Songbook — all the recognizable, loved songs that will remind you to accentuate the positive!

It was in 1944 that Bing Crosby made the Johnny Mercer tune, “Accentuate the Positive,” a hit in film and on radio. It later became known as one of the songs that got Americans through World War Two. The popular songs of the day, now called the Great American Songbook, became an unofficial catalogue of music that comforted, inspired and connected Americans at home and abroad between the 1920s-1940s. Now, Jazz at the Ballroom presents Accentuate the Positive, an evening of unforgettable music from the Songbook that grew up with the Greatest Generation.
