The Al Welsh Orchestra plays music of the big band era along with many of the most famous dance tunes of the 1920s, 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's, and beyond! We play the music of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Woody Hermann, Benny Goodman as well as music of the most popular dance bands such as Lawrence Welk, Guy Lombardo, Sammy Kaye, and many others!

Since the mid 1950's, the Al Welsh Orchestra, based in the state of Iowa, has entertained thousands of people annually, playing for many different occasions. Just as in decades past, the orchestra continues on to this day, playing ballrooms, town celebrations, wedding receptions, birthday and anniversary parties, and dedications, among other venues. The difference today is that there are not as many opportunities to perform. Many ballrooms and other venues that were running decades ago are no longer in existence. Nevertheless, the dancing and music are still alive and well, thanks to ongoing ballroom dance lessons and classes, catering to a younger generation, taking the place of past generations.
