THE CHEROKEES

THE USS CORAL SEA in the Tonkin Gulf
Jimmy Case & The Cherokees entertained the personnel aboard the USS Coral Sea on station in the Gulf of  Tonkin. They were flown to the ship from Saigon on the carriers twin turbo-prop engine supply plane and performed three shows, two on the deck edge elevator and one in the main hangar bay. Two of the escort ships pulled up beside the Coral Sea to also watch the shows. 
Jimmy Case & The Cherokees performed overseas many times. They went to Vietnam during the Vietnam War, as civilians to entertain the troops. They also performed in Thailand, Japan, Korea, Greenland, Iceland, Dominican Republic plus many other places around the world. Below you will find a few pictures of their various shows.

I wish to thank all of the many great musicians that made up the Cherokees that worked with me over the years and for traveling with me to so many dangerous places in the world to entertain our service men and women defending our country! We all had a great time and many memories to last more than a lifetime. Thanks again to all of you!
