747 ORCHESTRA is known for the soulful and authentic sounds of Funk,
Soul, R&B, Motown,Top 40 and Jazz. We have a repertoire of 700 songs.
The "killer" horn lines, vocals, interaction, instrumentation, energy and
musical talent of the musicians, together with the professionalism,
experience and seamless production 747 brings to every bandstand,
ensures the success of your event.


747 ORCHESTRA was founded in 1980 by Steve Jordan, who was a Berklee
College of Music graduate and mastered 8 instruments. He was Wilson
Pickett's musical director and toured with him, Pattie LaBelle and
countless others. He went on to form 747 Orchestra and had a flair for
playing the songs that kept the dance floor full throughout a reception.
He is credited with writing the stellar horn lines for 747 Orchestra that
we still play today!


747 Orchestra went on to become the most requested dance band in the wedding and special event industry, and his legacy is one we proudly carry on through the extraordinary talent of his musicians, under the leadership and direction of Nanci Silver.


747 Orchestra is honored to have provided our jazz trio for New York Magazine's wedding event for 8 consecutive years, and is the only music provider for their annual event.
