Reasons for the Decline of the Swing Era.
World War 2 and the draft
During World War 2, many big band members were drafted or volunteered to join the war effort. Big bands lost some of their great members, and thus big bands came to an end. Swing music, which was very popular during the war, died out at the end of the war. This happened because swing music was a reminder of the war and many people who were sad about the war tuned out swing or turned it off.
Transportation was difficult
During World War 2, automobile fuel was rationed and made it hard for many traveling big bands to tour, perform, and make a living.
