The Big Band From the Valley originated close to fifty years ago in Rose Valley, Delaware County, PA. The area is a haven for artists of every endeavor including notable actors Claude Rains and Richard Basehart. It was in this climate that a dance band began rehearsals in the historic Old Mill. Since then, we developed into a finely tuned unit attracting top flight musicians. Although our roots are with the all time big band greats, we adapt that excitement to today's music. The variety of music runs from the 40's to today's hits. The band is comprised of the full complement of three trumpets, four trombones, five saxophones, piano, bass, and drums.

The vocal duties are handled by Marge Miller and Dennis Finelli while the entire band sparkles with special musical arrangements from Bill Willis. The band plays for private functions, weddings, country clubs, and concerts (indoor and outdoor) throughout the Delaware Valley.
