The White Heat Swing Orchestra is nationally acclaimed as one of the hottest swing bands in the country today. The band was a major pioneer in the revival of swing and lindy in the 90’s. It performed for nearly two million fans at Boston night club, the Roxy, over four years, and was the first swing big band to receive Boston Magazine’s “Best Dance Band” award. WHSO has backed up Tony Bennett and Cab Calloway at the Roxy, and Norah Jones at Lincoln Center and recorded for Warner Brothers and Walt Disney, and was profiled on CBS News Tonight.
