Uptown Society Orchestra

USO Ten Piece Orchestra is an East Coast Swing outfit, that was started when Brent Wallarab and Mark Buselli lent Rick Holland their Swing Book, and the rest is history. Rick immediately went to work and added arrangements by the renowned composer and arrangers Kerry Strayer and David Sharp. Since then the book has grown to over 80 instrumentals and 55 vocal titles. The Band has performed everywhere from Toronto, Ontario to WNY and CNY, gigs in New Jersey, and even Grand Rapids, Michigan!
