The Charlie Gatch Big Band,
formerly the Jimmy Farr Orchestra
This regional dance orchestra organized in the 1950s is composed of sixteen musicians and has performed for three U.S. Presidents and the South Carolina Governors Conference and has booked such artists at Bob Hope. Performing music of the great big bands like Glen Miller and Count Basie as well as popular dance music of today, this ensemble is perfect for debutante balls and other formal events.
The Swing Set Dance Band
This group is a nine member variety band that plays in the styly of the large dance orchestra. This band specializes in swing and beach music but also performs jazz, Latin, and selective pop music of today. The Swing Set is an ideal ensemble for wedding receptions, dances, parties, balls, and conferences.
Various Chamber Ensembles and Instrumentalists
A brass or string ensemble or trumpet fanfare always enhances a wedding ceremony. And small ensembles such as these can provide lovely and moving background music for parties and other special events.
We can also provide male and female vocal soloists for weddings and other church and secular services.
