    Sound Engineers - Early Set Up

    We arrive approximately 3 hours before the start time to ensure we are ready before your guests arrive. We are meticulous about our sound and stage appearance. We will not disturb any of your guest through cocktail hour and most of all, dinner. There will be a live microphone on stage at all times for any special requests.

    Continuous Music

    By arriving early for a picture perfect set up, we will provide non stop music by playing iPod tracks during the cocktail hour, dinner and our two breaks. We have a wide variety of musical iPod tracks to satisfy any style of music that you would like to hear. Our goal is to create a soothing atmosphere when your guests arrive, a relaxing atmosphere through the course of dinner and to keep the Dance Floor filled at all times during our two fifteen minute breaks.

    Professional Appearance

    All members of The Park Avenue Orchestra will be in professional apparel. The men wear black tuxedos with a variety of cummerbunds to match the decor of the event. The females wear designer wear. Together we create a high style of profile. Matching casual wear is available. Our overall appearance is enhanced by Musical stage fronts with our name PARK AVENUE on them.

    Variety of Music

    We perform what our clients want to hear. The Orchestra plays all styles of music which includes Pop, Rock, R&B, Big Orchestra, Contemporary Dance Mix and Country. We are extremely versatile. Our goal is to reach out to all ages to achieve a stellar performance. We feel with this approach we can be a wonderful success to each and every event.

    Song list

    Our published song list will be sent to you one month prior to your special event. We will ask you to choose 40 songs to be performed. We will also ask you to choose songs you do not want us to play. If a song is not on our list, please ask us. Our repertoire is very extensive. Enclosed with the song list you will receive an outline to fill out. It consists of your first dance, bridal party dance, and special requests. If a song does not appear on our list, please allow the Orchestra two months to learn the material. We will also take requests from your guest providing they are consistent with your desires and appropriate for your event.


    All the musicians in the Orchestra are true professionals in the art of music. They give outstanding performances with a high energy level and tremendous talent to captivate each and every event. They are professionally educated and many of them are private instructors at schools and universities. They are dedicated and confident to make your event a success with their impressive achievements to their credit.

    Four Piece Horn Section

    We have a variety of full professional musical arrangements featuring our Four Horn Players. They play a wide variety of brass and woodwind instruments which includes trumpet, trombone tenor sax, alto sax, flute and clarinet. Together their talent and enthusiasm combine to make up one of the hottest horn sections in Chicago. All our horn charts are written by our trombonist – Mr. Chuck Sloka.

    Experience and Expertise

    With twenty years of experience The Park Avenue Orchestra continues to display the dedication and commitment of talent and enthusiasm. Our goal is to produce a lasting and memorable evening of music and entertainment. We strive for excellence with each and every performance.

    Park Avenue Band

    The Park Avenue Orchestra recently performed at our Annual Charity Dinner Gala. They were the perfect finale to a wonderful night. Kim Frost's voice is just incredible, and the other vocalists and musicians are impressive as well. The group has a very large repertoire, ranging from the classics through today's most popular hits. Hank Paul is extremely professional, and was an excellent event partner along the way. He made sure that I felt comfortable throughout the planning process, and confident in his group's ability to perform well and to also adhere to our strict schedule (load-in, sound check, performance, etc.). He made sure that the Band was one less thing I needed to worry about! This is the second time I've used the Park Avenue Orchestra. I first hired the group five years ago for my wedding, and they still continue to impress me today! I highly recommend this group for you're wedding, non-profit, or corporate event. We've received great feedback from our guests, and I look forward to working with Hank and the Band in the future.

    Park Avenue Band

    While searching for Corporate Bands in Chicago, I was swamped with all of the options. I found the Park Avenue Orchestra and loved their style and sound. From the first interaction, Hank Paul was attentive to all of our wants and made sure that every step from planning the event was exactly what we wanted. He is incredibly responsive and a great guy to work with. Guest throughout the evening raved about how smooth it was and the Band had people dancing the entire night! Thank you Park Avenue for making our event a complete success.
