The Tom Cunningham Orchestra
The Tom Cunningham Orchestra has performed at the Smithsonian, the Kennedy Center, the Barns of Wolf Trap, Blues Alley, presidential and gubernatorial inaugurals, the Cherry Blossom and other major Balls; they've been a "radio orchestra" and made several TV appearances, including BET's Jazz Central and Maryland Public Television's Big Band Battle, where the viewers voted them a 2-to-1 winner. They are holders of the Washington Area Musicians' Association's "Wammie" Award as the region's outstanding big band/swing group. Their vinyl album, Yes Indeed!, received national airplay and glowing reviews. Their second release, All The Cats Join In, ditto, and sold out a second printing. A third release, One O'clock Boogie, Two O'clock Jump, which also received rave reviews, is still being heard around the world on Sirius-XM.
