Providing dance music for accomplished dancers as well as the social dancer requires knowledge and experience: the Brass Tacks Orchestra has both and can provide a beautiful palette on which the dancer can create their art.

Ballroom dancing, at any level, is art and the music is it's canvas. It requires an understanding of such artistry to provide true ballroom dance music; members of the Brass Tacks Orchestra are ballroom dancers themselves and possess full appreciation of the art. Our shows present a night of pure entertainment and top level ballroom dance music.

Special attention is always given to knowledge of our client's dance style, organization of set lists to provide just the right order and variety of dances, accurate and precise tempos and the all important inner rhythms which create the “feel” that make you want to get up and dance.

Our live concerts are a showcase of the “big band” sound of 1940’s swing music, classic Frank Sinatra, and authentic arrangements of The Great American Songbook. Whether you are sitting in a calm darkened theater or in a park on a warm summer evening awash in the sound of live music, the sound of a singer surrounded by saxophones, trumpets and trombones transports you back to a time when great music was written and played by live musicians. Such is the experience of the Brass Tacks Orchestra in concert.
