Ed Palermo is not a "business as usual" musician. When most people think of "big bands" they think of Duke and Dorsey. But go to see Ed Palermo's Big Band and you might hear Zappa, Hendrix, the blues of Paul Butterfield and Mike Bloomfield or one of Ed's own compositions, loaded with lush turns and unexpected twists. Ed's interpretation of the music of iconoclastic composer Frank Zappa has brought him wide recognition. Before forming his own band, Ed toured and recorded with artists including Aretha Franklin, Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, Celia Cruz, Lena Horne, Tony Bennett, Mel Torme, Lou Rawls, Melba Moore, Debbie Gibson, The Spinners and countless others. He has written and arranged for the Tonight Show, Maurice Hines and Eddie Fisher.

Trumpeter Terry Szor has served on the brass department faculty of the Julliard School's Music Advancement Program (MAP) since 1997 and currently conducts the MAP Wind Ensemble. As a freelance musician, Terry has appeared with the New York Philharmonic, Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, Brooklyn Philharmonic, the Bronx Arts Ensemble among many others. He has performed for several Broadway shows, Radio City Music Hall, numerous television and radio commercials and soundtracks for video games. As a member of the award-winning Saturday Brass Quintet, Terry has performed recitals and led educational programs at such venues as The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. He performs as the principal trumpet with Opera Saratoga, Hudson Valley Philharmonic and the New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players.

A native of Lancaster PA, Steve Sherts quickly broke into the New York City music scene performing with some of the city's top orchestras and Broadway productions. These productions include The King and I at Lincoln Center Theater, King Kong, and West Side Story to name a few. He has performed as a guest artist with the Mostly Mozart Festival Orchestra, American Ballet Theater Orchestra, American Symphony Orchestra, New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, New York City Ballet Orchestra, The New York Pops, NOVUS NY, and Vermont Symphony, among others. Steve is also a member of the Allentown Symphony Orchestra, and former member of Symphony in C. He performs chamber music with the Chameleon Arts Ensemble in Boston and has performed and recorded with Placido Domingo, Electric Light Orchestra, and Johnny Mathis, and has recorded music for ESPN such as the NHL and College football themes.

Jonathan Greenberg has enjoyed a career in NYC that has spanned several decades and a multitude of musical styles. He has appeared with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, American Symphony, American Ballet Theatre, the Orchestra of St. Luke's, and Honolulu Symphony. He is a founding member of the groundbreaking Carnegie Hall LinkUp Orchestra. Chamber music experience includes performances with the Metropolis Ensemble, Manhattan Brass Quintet, St. Luke's Trombone Quartet, Absolute Ensemble and with the American Brass Quintet at the Aspen Music Festival. Commercial/Jazz experience includes performances with The Big Apple Circus, Toshiko Akiyoshi Jazz Orchestra, the Mingus Big Band, and tours of Japan with the Manhattan Jazz Orchestra. Jonathan continues to enjoy a prolific Broadway career, playing both trombone and tuba for shows that include Disney's The Lion King, Wicked, The Phantom of the Opera, and the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, among many others.
