The Al Curtis Orchestra was formed in the early 1960’s. They performed for monthly dances at the former Hyatt Regency in Knoxville for over 20 years. They also played for private and public functions throughout the southeast. Saxophonist Russell Ramsay, a 30-year veteran of the group, assumed the band’s leadership after Curtis passed away in 2004.
Dance the night away to the music that dancers request: waltzes, rumbas, tangos, the cha-cha, and big band swing. If you’re not a dancer, then sit back and enjoy the show. This is a unique opportunity to enjoy this great music played live by a talented group of musicians using the traditional big band instrumentation of saxes, trumpets, trombones and rhythm section.
