the champagne orchestra

The Champagne Orchestra, led by trumpeter Al Guraliuk, is a swinging band that plays the songs that filled the great ballrooms of the thirties and forties. The big bands of the day  had people dancing cheek-to-cheek during the Golden Era of Radio and their music is still popular today. Artists such as Michael Bublé, Natalie Cole, Diana Krall, Rod Stewart and even Lady Gaga have once again popularized these timeless songs.

Champagne is perfect to provide elegant dinner /dance music for your event.

Uncork the fun with Champagne!

The Champagne Orchestra will create a wonderful warm atmosphere at any function by playing soft dinner jazz. Romantic songs from the big band era combined with mellow Latin tunes and soft pop ballads form the perfect ambiance for a formal dinner. The music lends itself to dancing between courses or just listening and after dessert Champagne has the repertoire to fill the dance floor.
