These are the Jive Bombers, A Navy jazz band. In this instance they are playing at a dance for CASU Operations sailors on Dec. 13, 1943 at the Jungle Inn near Sand Point, WA. CASU is an acronym for Carrier Service Unit. One of many snaps that I have of this somewhat wild night attended by my Mom & Dad.
