New Deal Swing Orchestra
we are a 16 piece Big Band - playing music from the 1930s & 1940s. We only play the original arrangements and orchestrations made famous by the Big Bands of 75-80 years ago (no updated or contemporary versions of music of this period - strictly the original arrangements). We realize that many of this generation (born between 1919 & 1927) are departing - and would love to bring their musical of their youth to them - live and in person. A sample of our rep: Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey, Bob Crosby........all members of the New Deal Swing Orchestra are professionals here in Salt Lake City - some like myself are full time members of the Utah Symphony. We try to play the music of the 1930s & 40s as authentically & stylistically as possible. We hope to bring some joy & nostalgia to this "greatest generation." are band comes - well rehearsed and well dressed in period attire (suits ties etc....)
