Band: Glenn Crytzer Orchestra

image
The Glenn Crytzer Orchestra (formerly known as “Crytzer’s Blue Rhythm Band") is a swinging big band performing the music of the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. Their repertoire includes Crytzer’s transcriptions of famous and lesser known arrangements by artists like Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Chick Webb as well as his original songs and arrangements, written in the vintage style.

The band has performed at events and venues including Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Nights Swing, the Rainbow Room, Lindy Focus, the Seattle Lindy Exchange, and Camp Jitterbug, and they were the winners of the 2011 Washington DC Lindy Exchange “Battle of the Big Bands.”

In 2009 the band released their debut album entitled “Chasin’ the Blues.” The record includes three original songs composed by Crytzer (Chasin’ the Blues, Dickey’s Blues, Rachin’ in Rhythm [sic]) as well as 9 more original arrangements of classic songs. Recordings from this record have been used in a number of films and major network TV projects and are particularly popular amongst producers of ‘period’ programs.

Glenn’s goal with the orchestra is to create a new, old big band. Rather than trying to re-create music exactly as old bands played it or to modernize it, Glenn writes and arranges to allow the personalities of his musicians come through a filter of the swing-era. The band never updates their sound by including post war technology like individual mics, drum mics, ride cymbals, bass amps, electric keyboards, or stage monitors. The result is what sounds like a brand new swing band from 1941!

From there she branched out into Ballroom Dancing.  She has been in two performance groups, the Sundancers and the Lindy Hoppers, She has won several Jack & Jill contests over the years in West Coast Swing and Two Step. Although an accomplished dancer, Ellen thinks her main skill is making dance fun for her students whatever their level of accomplishment....particularly for those who are newcomers to the world of dance.
