The White Heat Orchestra is Boston’s premier Big Band Swing group and is widely recognized as one of the preeminent swing bands in the U.S. today. It has recorded for Walt Disney Pictures and Warner Brothers, and backed up Norah Jones and Tony Bennett. In addition to high energy swing music, WHSO has great vocal artists who sing the Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald, Cab Calloway repertoire plus Latin, Ballroom and Salsa. White Heat Swing Orchestra’s unique four-to-the-floor high energy swing style has made it a hit with college and university audiences. Wedding reception clients include members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Rockefellers, movie stars, and international and political luminaries.
This is a high-energy band featuring a trio or up to 15 pieces playing the swing and jazz of the 1930’s and 1940’s for dancers of all ages. The group is available in customized configurations anywhere from a large 10-15pc group to smaller four to eight piece ensembles. Both configurations play similar repertoire but clients should keep in mind that for the authentic experience, big band swing groups were BIG and consisted of full horn sections of at LEAST 8-9 horns.
