The American Songbook


The NC Revelers Orchestra, while featuring the best music of the Big Band Era, carries that tradition to the present day with newer tunes from the ensuing years that lend themselves to the instrumentation of the classic Big Band. We play newer material from the likes of Harry Connick and Michael Buble' right along with the more traditional big band fare associated with Glenn Miller or Frank Sinatra. Show tunes are of necessity a large part of our presentation and we play the best of the best.

Our library includes tunes from Broadway, sambas, cha-chas, beguines, tangos and waltzes among others right along with classic tunes from the beach and rock songbooks.

Our two vocalists Lauren Meehan (left) and Kelly Smith (right, below) sing the songs you remember. Both do it with a style, grace and competence which dazzles our audiences. The effort put forth by every single member of this group, whether singers, musicians, rehearsal conductor or set-up crew, is professional in every way and is the expression of many years of musical training and experience. Each of us spends his or her days in one professional capacity or another although not all of us depend on music for a living. The music is our outlet, indeed for most of us, our passion. We rehearse every week year round and many engage in daily private practice to maintain the skills necessary to play this wonderful music.

We constantly seek new music to offer our listeners. We will constantly add new material as we find it. If you have a favorite you'd like to see us add to our repertoire, please let us know. It's probably available somewhere "out there," and we'll be happy to add it when and if we are able to find it.
