Introducing the Martinsburg Jazz Orchestra, a 16-piece ensemble performing at a variety of venues in the Shenandoah Valley region for more than 20 years.|
Since its debut performance at the 1990 re-dedication of the Apollo Theater, MJO has delighted audiences of all ages with its ever-expanding library of authentic swing music and contemporary big band jazz. Equally at home on the concert stage, ballroom, and at private functions, the band features some of the area's finest musicians.
Its '97 European tour was highlighted by a performance for an international audience at our embassy in Vienna. More recently, this high-energy ensemble has earned standing ovations as the opening act for a Maynard Ferguson concert and as the featured big band at the Bluemont Concert Series.
Please linger at our website and enjoy a comprehensive sampling of MJO's live performances. And check our schedule frequently; don't miss the opportunity to meet MJO Live!
