WEDDINGS

GALAS

Whether it’s a charity ball, fundraiser or black-tie gala, the Clark/Johnson Orchestra can provide the musical entertainment to make your special party or event an unforgettable and elegant affair. Our 12-piece band consists of a dynamic full rhythm section of piano, bass, guitar and drums, a brilliant 4-piece horn section, and four outstanding vocalists. We provide an eclectic mix of favorite soul and R&B classics from Motown to Memphis, swinging standards from the Great American Songbook, romantic balladds and current popular dance hits that are sure to please a wide audience and get all your guests out on the dance floor!

 

Following is a sample of the range of danceable material we cover: nostalgic music of the 20’s and 30’s like Irving Berlin’s, Blue Skies, Puttin’ on the Ritz, and Cheek to Cheek; Cole Porter’s Night and Day, I Get a Kick Out of You and I’ve Got You Under My Skin as recorded by Frank Sinatra; big band classics like String of Pearls, Little Brown Jug, and In The Mood; perennial Jazz standards by Ellington and Basie like Take the A Train, Satin Doll, and April in Paris; beloved Motown, Soul and R&B classics like It’s the Same Old Song by the Four Tops, Gladys Knight’s Midnight Train to Georgia, Al Green’s Let’s Stay Together, the Supremes Ain’t’ No Mountain High Enough and many more — plus our contemporary play-list, including hits like Raise Your Glass by Pink, Forget You by Celo Green, Please Don’t Stop the Music by Rihanna, Someone Like You by Adele, and more. We can, of course, accommodate any special requests you may have.
