Friday in Orange: Marty’s Reminisce Orchestra

ORANGE — On Friday, July 30, Marty’s Reminisce Orchestra will be playing at Butterfield Park Bandstand at 7 p.m.

There is lots of room to listen from the car or bring the folding chairs closer to the music. For over 20 years, this band of local talent has been bringing music of the ’40s and ’50s to dancing and listening audiences. The group includes vocalists Linda Piragis and Chuck Berube who are local vocal stars themselves. Marty Picard is the founder, director and drummer of this traditional 15-piece orchestra. They have played for benefit events, summer concerts, and public theme dances in the North Quabbin and beyond.
