Moonlighters Big Band | Lititz PA Swing Band


Jim Sheckler


All his friends (and fellow band members) call him “Shecky”. He was a drummer for the Royaltones with Joe Galie in Lancaster after moving here with his family in 1962. Shecky was asked to play drums for Bob Troxell’s Big Band in 1982. Unfortunately, he had to quit in 1993 after having five back surgeries in four years. He started playing again in 1998 and retired from working in 1999 after 33 years working for a local company. Shecky had his first couple of rehearsals and engagements with the Moonlighters in the fall of 2001. His hobbies include listening to big band music, sun and fun at the beach, and watching his five grandchildren grow up.
