The Fred Barton Broadway Band is a gift to New York performance. It illuminates timeless classics, classics of our time and contemporary music. Such grand, glorious harmonies revive the heyday of New York’s nightlife, and that is a sublime achievement. this orchestra is comprised of top-flight musicians, each with a star-studded resumé. If words could drop from a page, my floor would be littered with a ticker tape jumble of A-list names.”
