BOISE -- Cloverdale Funeral Home in Boise invited families to come out and enjoy music from the World War II-era on Memorial Day.

The Victory Belles sang for a full house Monday afternoon. The group's style was right out of a United Service Organization (USO) show from the Pacific.

The singers hail from the National World War II Museum in New Orleans. The group visited Boise for the first time on Monday, and said they enjoyed putting smiles and a little lipstick on people's faces.

"We travel all over the world and get to see different kinds of places, but what we're really doing is singing to people and trying to keep a certain kind of music alive, and we just love being able to share those moments," said one of the Victory Belles.

"We feel that music brings people together. It's a different event, and I think it speaks for itself with the turnout that we've had," said Terry Shotkoski, managing partner with Cloverdale Funeral Home and Cemetery.

Shotkoski tells KTVB that next year, the concert will be outside to accommodate the crowd.
