The fabulous Les Elgart Orchestra represents one of the few remaining "Big Bands" from the forties.

 The orchestra has and continues to entertain around the world, having performed at such prestigious locations as the Cocoanut Grove, the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, and the hotels Astor, Roosevelt, New Yorker and Waldorf Astoria in New York City.  The orchestra has also performed in Hawaii, Disneyland, London, Las Vegas, Rio de Janeiro, Guatemala, Chicago, and many of the colleges and universities in the United States.  Les also worked on the Norwegian Cruise Lines as well as the famous Mississippi Delta Queen.

Les wrote the theme for the popular show American Bandstand ("Bandstand Boogie") and was the award winner in Variety, Billboard and Cashbox polls as the Number One Dance Band in the United States.

The orchestra recorded over 100 albums, which are still available on Sony/Columbia records.  In 1986, Les was inducted into the Big Band Hall of Fame.  Despite his passing in 1995, the organization and management are dedicated to projecting the band's unique dancing style into the future.

The orchestra is now under the direction of former band member Russ Dorsey.  Russ has recaptured the great sound and style that critics have called "the World's Greatest Foxtrot Orchestra".

Recently the World Famous Les Elgart Orchestra performed on the TLC program, "The Wedding Story".

The Les Elgart Orchestra will make your wedding, concert, cruise or just a great private gala or other special event an unforgettable evening filled with excitement and pleasure that will remain for years to come.
