The multifaceted sound of the 13-piece RSVP Orchestra will be one of the entertainment features at this week's Palatine Jaycees Hometown Fest. Performing Thursday, July 3, 4:30-6:30 p.m., at the Fred P. Hall Amphitheater, 262 E. Palatine Road, Palatine, the RSVP Orchestra (www.rsvporchestra.com) will be spotlighting "hits through the decades", from Swing music of the 40's to the Top 40. This outdoor concert is free and open to all ages. Phone: 847.604.0288.
Rather than pay tribute to a particular band or specialize in a certain style, the RSVP Orchestra's 100% "live" line-up of singers, horns, violins, percussion and rhythm section enables it to capture the sound and flavor of hits from classic to contemporary, reflecting the Hometown Fest's wide range of ages and tastes.
Led by Northwest suburban resident and saxophonist/music producer Roy Vombrack, the group has been entertaining at concerts, dances and special events throughout the Chicago area and Midwest for over 20 years. Vombrack also leads the popular 17-piece Jazz Consortium Big Band, featured every month at Palatine's Durty Nellie's Pub.
