Since I started the Glenn Crytzer Orchestra in 2008, I'm proud to say that we've become recognized by around the world as the premiere ensemble specializing in music from the Swing Era.
The band has performed from coast to coast at concert halls, clubs, hotels and events including spots like Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, the Rainbow Room, the Plaza Hotel and many more. We were named Best Group in New York in the 2017 NYC Jazz Awards, and our recordings have appeared in Disney Films, documentaries, TV shows on multiple networks, and even in some of your favorite podcasts.
Each musician in the GCO is a world-class artist in his or her own right; they've toured the world and recorded with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Leon Redbone, US Armed Forces Service Bands, the Artie Shaw Orchestra, the Clark Terry Orchestra, and many others that I haven't the space to list! I've personally selected every musician in the group because he or she is not only a great performer, but because each individual is deeply passionate about classic jazz.
When you book the GCO, you're not just getting a band of freelancers who is playing at your club to collect a check, you're getting a group of dedicated artists who want to share music that they're passionate about with you and your fellow members to create an unforgettable experience you'll want to repeat every summer!
