The orchestra is based in Central New Jersey, and travels throughout the Tri-State area of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

Everywhere we play, audiences are smiling and having a good time. Steve Kaplan, our energetic and talented musical director, is very entertaining, explaining the music and encouraging audience participation with original arrangements of Sing-Alongs and medleys of lively popular music. We often adjust our set list at a performance based on the music that the audience enjoys the most. Matched decorative music stands provide the band with a sharp, professional appearance.
