The Johnny Knorr Orchestra is available to play for parties and special events.  We will tailor a play list of music to your specific theme or style.  The Orchestra has played at many different events over the years:  parties, weddings, special events, celebrations of all kinds, wedding anniversaries, birthdays, community events and much more.  With a wonderful repertoire of music, the Johnny Knorr Orchestra can help make your next event 'come alive' with the sound of a live band!


The Johnny Knorr Orchestra trademark is "The Music You Like...The Way You Like to Hear It™".  The Knorr band travels thousands of miles a year from Chicagoland to Washington, DC.  The band is noted for its great library of music and custom arrangements for shows and dances.  The play list for dances includes Swing, Foxtrot, slow and society, waltz, Cha Cha, Rhumba, Merengue, Samba, Mambo, Disco and Rock.  A program is set up for each engagement but is still flexible to answer special requests.

Over the years, the Orchestra has received a tremendous response to themed programs of music.  If you would like a show featuring the music of Elvis Presley, just ask!  In the past, Johnny Knorr has presented programs of music including the Cavalcade of Big Band Vocalists featuring the music of artists like Helen O'Connell, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, the Andrews Sisters and more.  Other programs include a "Tribute to Glenn Miller" and "Songs of Sinatra".

A noted critic said, "Johnny brings a tremendous amount of experience and talent to the bandstand and provides a genuine warmth of his personality that brings music of yesterday and today together for his audiences."
