We are often asked “can we hire Tony and the Orchestra”? In addition to public performances at Festivals, Concerts in the Parks and most recently, The Love and Peace of Christmas Shows, Tony and the AKO keep a busy calendar providing memorable entertainment for private events though the year. And, in varying sizes and musical formats to suit the occasion. Want to keep them talking long after the last dance?
