Past Events of Gary Greenfelder Orchestra

Gary Greenfelder Orchestra (formerly the “One Beat Back Big Band”) was established in 1991.  To this day, the group has weekly rehearsals, is always learning new material and sharpening their skills as a unit.  The band began performing with their own annual dinner dances, moving to performing local summer concerts and fundraisers, including four annual “Swing for Charity” events at the Andiamo Celebrity Showroom.  Throughout this period the band was playing many events, from Yacht Club Balls and Weddings to Corporate Celebrations, along with Concerts, including several performances at the B’Jazz Vesper Series in Birmingham.  The band has recorded two CD’s the first in 1998 called “Standardized” and in 2007 we recorded “Live” at the Birmingham B’Jazz Vespers series.  Today the band has progressed to feature shows in a variety of venues.  We don’t just play, we entertain!
