I recently attended a friend's wedding where the Clark Johnson Orchestra performed for the cocktail hour and reception. The Clark Johnson Orchestra (formally The Morris Ellis Orchestra however now under different leadership) was essential in creating an upbeat yet sophisticated ambiance. I am so glad that my friend opted for a live band rather than the traditional DJ as they were fun, engaging and entertaining. They looked good and sounded good and played a wide variety of music ranging from smooth jazz to contemporary hits. I'd highly recommend The Clark Johnson Orchestra for your wedding or special event! - University Club
Rodney, Johnnie and Band - You are the greatest. Words cannot describe how much we loved your program. Your music and people were so brilliant and original. They were AMAZING! We were so pleased and cannot thank you enough for making our wedding so fun, and so memorable. We hope to have you back soon for another party. Or, maybe we will just crash one of your upcoming weddings when we are in the mood to stretch it out a bit. Keep your eyes open and we will see you soon. -  Patrick Shannon
Sean is phenomenal. Have seen/heard him sing several times; quite a repertoire. - Pamela Purnell
I've known Rodney Clark for years. Not only is he a fantastic trumpet player but also a great music teacher. His orchestra, The Clark/Johnson Orchestra, would be a definite plus for any occasion. Great music and it's LIVE which means it's not that DJ fiddling around with his cd player or some computer music. People, the real experience of a lifetime for any occasion is to have a great orchestra playing LIVE! Dig it? Hope y'all do! An exceptional orchestra worth hiring for your special event! - Tom Vanko Sr.

After searching for a band for my big day (wedding), I came across Clark/Johnson Orchestra. Not only was the rate I was quoted very reasonable, but the quality of this band is world-class! This band helped make our wedding day a magical night that my wife and I will never forget. I have already recommended Clark/Johnson Orchestra to my brother-in-law for his wedding. I can’t wait to enjoy the band again. Thanks Clark/Johnson Orchestra! - Kevin Randleman, Chicago, IL
As the primary event executive at the company I work for, I have A LOT on my plate at all times. I was so pleased that you guys made arranging the musical performances at our company’s award gala so easy and hassle free! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! - Rebecca Killian, Oak Park, IL
This band accented my son’s bar mitzvah perfectly! My son wanted a 1920’s Chicago theme for his bar mitzvah, and I was delighted to learn that one of the many musical styles that this band specializes in is “the big band style”.  I felt as if I had been transported to the roaring 20’s when this band started playing. Thanks guys! - Michael Geldman, Winnetka, IL
Mr. Clark and Johnson,
Thank you guys so much for making my company’s holiday party one to remember for a lifetime! I look very forward to having your band perform at our next holiday party. Keep up the good work guys! - Brad Ilacqua, Naperville, IL
