Song List/Group Options

Meeting this Economy with stylistic diversity and group size options has been an interesting push in an unexpected,  very cool direction…Although our preference will always be the Classic Horn Band concept, we have discovered ways of meeting budgetary needs with just the right amount of players…

Below you will see a brief description of some of what we can provide for you. Feel free to call about any ideas you might have in mind…Our ability to read opens up a lot of potential options providing we have rehearsal time to make things happen for you. And all of our ensemble creations are based on utilizing our core group of stylistically diverse musicians…

~>>>Your vision is our challenge to create the perfect music for ~>>>

All of our instrumentalists are schooled musicians. Our capacity to read lends itself to having the ability to play many different styles of music to accommodate any function…So as long as what you want is about quality music…we’re in….

Our preference is to perform music live with real musicians playing every part. As opposed to playing to prerecorded tracks as so many of our competetors do in todays music scene…Most people don’t know the difference…My hope is that you do.

Our complete library of ” in stock” Charted material is far to extensive to list here. We have over 5000 Charts at our disposal that represent a large varety music styles and eras…

Our musical styles include Classical, Contemporary Country, Swing, R&B, Latin, Blues, Funk, Disco, Pop Rock, Big Band, Standard and Contemporary Jazz, Classic Acoustic/Folk material, and of course the great horn band classics from our recent past into today….

Although we pride ourselves on being a Classic Horn Based Band…We absolutely  love all kinds of music. So what we bring to your event is  always the perfect blend of material for all ages and every event….Musical selections unique to meet your personal music preferences…This is part of what makes us stand out from the rest.

Musical selections  geared to keep your guests entertained from the ceremonial time frame through your silent auction or cocktail hour, dinner, right on through to the final dance of the evening.

For styles that we can not perform ourselves, (i.e. Steel Drums, Harpist, Strolling Violins, etc…)We have referral sources to help provide you with exactly what you are looking for…. All you have to do is know what you want, so that we can provide it for you.
