The Minidoka Swing Band, founded in 2007, pays tribute to the many bands that were formed in the internment camps during WWII. They perform Big Band Swing music and entertainment produced at those Saturday dances in camp. They also provide education about the internment of the Japanese-Americans.
Sponsored by the Sacramento Betsuin Choir.
