We created this piece in order to highlight just how authentic the Main Stem Orchestra's sound really is. We have spliced our version of "Stealin Apples" in with the original Benny Goodman recording from 1939 played directly off of a 78 RPM record. We hope you enjoy it.
Petra Van Nuis sings the Ella Fitzgerald classic "A Tisket, A Tasket."

The Main Stem Orchestra is available now for booking at weddings, corporate events, concerts and clinics.
In addition to the full orchestra, and following in the tradition of Benny Goodman's small groups and the Artie Shaw Gramercy Five, the MSO can provide slimmed-down ensembles featuring the rhythm section plus one or more horns and an optional vocalist.
