Members of this new ensemble will learn and play all commercial musical genres and styles from the 1930s to present day. The ensemble will be multifaceted and may include all the instrumentation of a touring professional contemporary band, a full rhythm section, horn section, multiple lead and background vocalists, as well as a smaller singer/songwriter and showcase group that will perform in a more acoustic setting.
