In early 1995, Bob Archer put out the word that a new Big Band was forming and he was looking for musicians. The new group came together and has performed its brand of Gospel and Patriotic music.
The orchestra’s motto is “spreading the Gospel through music” and that is exactly what the group strives to do each and every concert.
The band has performed throughout Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, Kansas, New Mexico, New York and New Jersey.
