Drawing inspiration, style and repertoire from the great bands, performers and composers of the Jazz Age, San Francisco's own Royal Society Jazz Orchestra affectionately and authentically recaptures the excitement, exuberance and charm of that musical era. The orchestra has been guided for more than 10 years by Don Neely and his affinity for music legends such as Fletcher Henderson, Paul Whiteman and Duke Ellington. Vocalist Carla Normand joins in the fun, which includes tunes by the likes of George Gershwin, Fats Waller, Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael, Cole Porter and more.
