The Hot Tomatoes Dance Orchestra

We are pleased to announce this year we’ll have The Hot Tomatoes Dance Orchestra! They will be backing up Frank and the Satin Dollz as well as playing the songs of the 40‘s for you to dance to! 

This group is a fabulous nine piece band that specializes in swing, dance music, and big band jazz.  Their unique style was developed from the great swing and jazz bands of the thirties and forties. They excel at re-creating the wonderful music of Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Count Basie and others.
