Joshua's House Event 12-7-19.jpg

Under the direction of Kevin Hamby, orchestra leader, and Gerhard Bauer, producer, a new dance orchestra was founded in 2017, called “Symphonia Phonotone”. This dance orchestra plays in the style of the big dance orchestras of the 1920s and 1930s, bringing back syncopated dance music and early jazz, which was once the most popular music in the US, the UK and continental Europe. Everybody, young and old, danced to this kind of music.

Symphonia Phonotone is comprised of some of the best musicians of Sacramento. We pride ourselves in performing the music in the authentic way it was meant to be played, and our audience is treated to an experience that has not been around in live music for the last 80 or more years.
