  BACKGROUND VERIFIED
$800 - $6000 per event
Saxophonist/bandleader Fil Lorenz has performed with the top names in the business, from the Big Bands of Glenn Miller and Tommy Dorsey, to 60s icons Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Soul and Motown legends Gladys Knight and Mary Wilson (of the Supremes), Bobby Caldwell, modern day soul/R&B star, Seal...and many, many others.

He brings a vast array of musical experiences to the table and his band is always stocked with the area's A-list players, all of whom have equally extensive performing credentials.

Featured vocalist, Ms. Hale Baskin is endowed with a clear, beautiful voice, a sure sense of swing, and a seemingly innate sense of the nuances of Jazz phrasing. She moves effortlessly from channeling the songbirds of the Glenn Miller and Count Basie Orchestras to classic Ella Fitzgerald-inspired Jazz favorites.

Dig the sounds of Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Bobby Darin? Let us call on our good friend Mr. Danny Grewen! For the past five years Grewen has been playing the part of "Ol' Blue Eyes" in the TRP production of "The Rat Pack is Back!". As an interpreter of the Great American Songbook, Grewen is second-to-none.

Options - What you need, we can do. Small instrumental combo for cocktail hour? Solo piano? Full Las Vegas show band? 1 singer, 2 singers, no singer? No problem. Let's discuss your "vision"!

We work closely with each client to help find the right "fit". From solo piano or an intimate duo all the way up to a swingin' 18-piece BIG BAND we have something for any venue/stage size, budget, or personal taste.

Want to kick the party into high gear? We can do that too. The songs of Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Stevie Wonder, Tower Of Power, Al Green and other Soul and Motown hit makers are in our private reserve playlist. Looking for something in particular? Just ask!

I truly loved working with the Fil Lorenz Orchestra for the Friends of Dentistry Gala at USC. They provided the perfect match to our roaring 20s Gala and were wonderful to work with as well. I was a bit worried that our guests of dentists and doctors wouldn't get up and dance to the music, but Fil and his crew got them up dancing far into the night. The great jazz sound combined with the Frank Sinatra-esk voice of their singer were a perfect pairing. They are truly a unique sound and provide an incredible experience for any gala or party. Thank you! Kristi
