Dedicated young musicians, composed of Western New York area schools who are
interested in performing the music of the big band era, along with their spirited and
enthusiastic director, are the ingredients of The SUGAR & JAZZ Orchestra.
For over 40 years, Mr. Lorango has been dedicated to his dream of keeping “The
Music That Memories Are Made Of and the “Big Band Sound” alive in the hearts of
the young and old with the SUGAR & JAZZ orchestra.
The band is a self-supporting, independent group, not funded by or under control of
any school district or board of education or any other entity. All the monies raised by
the group come solely from the band's performances and through donations. They are
used to cover the band's operating expenses and educational trip the band members take
The SUGAR & JAZZ orchestra has performed for a wide variety of public and private
functions including A Taste of Buffalo, the festival of lights, Canal Fest of the
Tonawanda's and Kleinhan's Music Hall.
Though primarily a local orchestra, throughout the years the band has traveled to
perform as far away as Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida, and also
has performed in Canada.
Membership is open to high school and middle school students, with the sincere
interest in performing the music made famous by Glenn Miller and other “Big Bands”.
Retirees are also welcome to join.
