Alan Gresik's 
Swing Shift Orchestra 

Our show is presented as an old time radio show including both old time and fictional commercials combined with our award winning Alan Gresik Swing Shift Orchestra. Since 1998 we have held on to the only steady big band job in Chicago where we have been meticulously plowing through all 26,000 music scores from the golden age of radio. All the arrangement were used by various radio station staff orchestras including stations: WGN, WFAA courtesy of the Balaban and Katz theatre orchestra located on the 8th floor of the Harold Washington library where Alan Gresik has been granted special access to this collection without being a librian after making a huge donation of over 4000 stock arrangements that were given to him from Neil Dunlap who Alan studied with on Trumpet. He is the only person in chicago with this privilege. 
The orchestra has included such personalities as John Otto, Andy Schumm,
Jake Sanders, Alex Hall and Beau Sample. Amanda Wolff is our current singer. This year celebrates the "Class of 2014". The first class of Gresik started back in 1983 with his first band Big Als Hot Dance Orchestra.
