I’ve always been interested in the 1940’s, music, cloths, a time when it was very though during the war, but when we were at our very best, I’ve always been interested by the American airforce, USAAF, they were the 1st Yanks to arrive in¬†England in 1942

to take up day light bombing,¬†the name Don Gentile, came by accident, my good friend Mr Paul Harper gave it to me has he said I looked like him, in my USAAF uniform, so I took it as my stage name, capt don gentile was an American fighter pilot, who fought in the battle of Britain, then transferred to the USAAF 8th airforce in 1942, I love the many people I meet when traveling to the 40’s events, we all long for that forgotten time when we all came together as one. even in those dark days their was great entertainers, the women were glamorous, the music was up beat and swinging.and the people you meet at these events although strangers at 1st, soon become life long friends.
