The Back Bay Rhythm Makers is the small band ensemble of the White heat Swing Orchestra. The White Heat Swing Orchestra is nationally acclaimed as one of hottest swing bands in the country today. It was a major pioneer in the revival of swing and lindy in the 90's. It performed for nearly two million fans at Boston nightclub, the Roxy, over four years, and was the first swing big band to receive Boston Magazine's “Best Dance Band” award. It backed up Tony Bennett and Cab Calloway at the Roxy, and recorded for Warner Brothers and Walt Disney Pictures for the blockbuster movie, Dick Tracy. CBS News Tonight described leader, Craig Ball, as a “kind of Benny Goodman for the decade”. Grammy Award winner, Norah Jones was the guest vocalist with WHSO at Lincoln Center, NYC.
In addition to high energy swing music, BBRM and WHSO have great vocal artists who sing the Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald repertoire plus Latin, Ballroom and Salsa. White Heat Swing Orchestra’s unique four-to-the-floor high energy swing style has made it a hit with college and university audiences. Parents and grandparents appreciate its recognizable swing era ballads. Wedding reception clients include members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Rockefellers, movie stars, and international and political luminaries. WHSO/BBRM are on the recommended lists at historic mansions such as the Lyman Estate and the Gamble Mansion, the Wequassett Inn, and the Chatham Bars Inn. Contemporary recorded dance music can be provided along with the band at no extra cost for added variety. BBRM is smaller ensembles ranging from 3 to 7 musicians, while WHSO runs from 10 to 14 musicians. Costs vary with band size and location. A CD and additional information are available on request --just provide a mailing address. A short video is on our website. Also, if you want quotes, we need to know where, when, and how many guests to be able to recommend some options to you.

Craig and his group were absolutely fantastic. Wish I could give them more than five stars. They arrived early, set up with no fuss and then proceeded to provide the very best music for the event. They read the room and adjusted their selections accordingly, keeping the party moving along and everyone well entertained. I can't say enough about their professionalism and incredibly talent. Can't wait to have another occasion to book these musicians. They are the very best.
