Alex Wan's Dream Orchestra

If you like classical music or jazz, this is the band for you.  Even if you don't, it's worth a listen, since their songs also have hints of more contemporary fare.  The listener never knows what quite what to expect, as the band goes from a smooth classical style ballad straight into a smoking hot jazz piece.  Guitarist Alex Wan leads the orchestra, which includes a full strings section, woodwind, brass, reed, piano, and percussion.  Based out of Randolph, Massachusetts, they play original compositions written by Alex Wan that showcase not only Wan's songwriting abilities, but the excellent musicianship of the orchestra members.  Whether you want some easy listening background music or swing you can dance to, this is a band worth checking out.  To hear music from Alex Wan's Dream Orchestra, please visit
