The Prohibition Orchestra is a 10-piece band dedicated to playing the music of the early big band era. All their arrangements were published from 1923 to 1934. It's the real authentic sound, and the only Chicago-area band currently playing in this style of swing bands from Chicago's South Side. The Prohibition Orchestra is serious about exposing people today to the music of the 1920s as accurately as possible. Get ready to Lindy-Hop, Charleston and swing! They are joined by Swing Hakim, playing a mixture of Gypsy Jazz and Middle Eastern Music for your dancing and listening enjoyment.
