Bobby Layne Orchestra
Bobby Layne & his Orchestra have been performing on a regular basis for over 60 years, traveling throughout the country (including Hawaii).
Their music bridges the generations from the 1930’s to the present: swing, tangos, sambas, waltzes, show tunes and a bit of rock. For dancers and listeners alike, the Bobby Layne Orchestra with featured vocalist Trudy DuMay delivers an entertainment experience you won’t forget. See the Events Schedule and make plans to be there!
