Our ORCHESTRAS and BANDS

Please Note:

Our orchestras and bands are staffed by stellar vocalists backed by musicians who are also first-rate lead singers. For example, a nine-piece group could consist of two upfront vocalists and seven instrumentalists, four of whom also sing. Throughout your event, these six singers deliver rich vocal harmonies and contribute a wide variety of musical styles.

The size and configuration of your orchestra, band or ensemble can be adjusted to reflect your taste, meet your music requests and respect your budget.

Whenever Courtney sings or plays, there is a wonderful surge of energy that comes from him that lifts the music to a level that very few performers reach. The music becomes magical and playful, hypnotic and sensual. It's as if he weaves a spell. If you ask him how he does it, he'll tell you that he doesn't know. But he does it extremely well.

        POPULAR SONGBOOK:

Cabaret quality and style that is uniquely Manhattan.  A handsome and gifted pianist and singer, Mitch Kahn performs the timeless music of Porter, Gershwin, Kern and Arlen, among many others.  Mitch can be accompanied by a small combo or a breathtakingly full orchestra with multiple vocalists.
