Based in Cambridge MA
The White Heat Orchestra, with bandleader Craig Ball is a high-energy band featuring a trio or up to 15 pieces playing the swing and jazz of the 1930's and 1940's for dancers of all ages. Also known as the "Roxy Band", the band was the house band for almost five years at the 1300 person capacity upscale Roxy nightclub, playing music for both the swing dancers and the nightclub crowd every hour three nights a week. Based on their performance at Roxy and achievement in being selected by Boston Magazine as the Best Dance Band of Boston, the band has well proved that they are able to perform in front of young dancers as well, which is unique to recent swing band history.

With the ability to compliment any dances, weddings, benefits, and corporate functions, the band can simply fulfill your demand for perfect party or function. Fast or slow, they hit every note without missing a beat. That is why the White Heat Orchestra is unsurpassed in New England in name recognition among the swing bands.
