The O’Rourkestra


The O’Rourkestra is a 20 piece jazz ensemble consisting of 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, 5 reeds, 2 French Horns, Tuba, piano, guitar, bass and drums along with guest vocalists. The repertoire consists mainly of charts arranged and or composed by David O’Rourke – in some cases, band member’s charts are played. We do NOT play stock arrangements. The band has not performed since the passing of pianist George Mesterhazy but we will reconvene at some point, knowing that George would want this too. The addition of Paul Jost on vocals brought a whole new dynamic and texture to the ensemble. Watch the calendar for any upcoming performances.
