See Former Electric Light Orchestra Members as The Orchestra August 25!
The Orchestra is a rock band formed by former members of the Electric Light Orchestra and ELO Part II. Their music fuses modern pop with rock and adds classical overtones for an unforgettable sound.
Enjoy your favorites like “Can’t Get It Out of My Head”, “Strange Magic”, and more as The Orchestra hits the American Music Theatre stage. Friday, August 25 at 8:00 p.m. will be a full evening of hit after hit of symphonic rock.
The Orchestra’s current roster includes:
- Mik Kaminski on violin
- Louis Clark on orchestral keyboards
- Eric Troyer on vocals and keyboards
- Parthenon Huxley on vocals and guitar
- Gordon Townsend on vocals and drums
- Glen Burtnik on vocals and bass
The Orchestra certainly has had their ups and downs to get to where they are today. In fact, the Electric Light Orchestra and ELO Part II were both the same band at different times and under different ownership!
Bev Bevan was an original member of Electric Light Orchestra and founder of ELO Part II. By 2000, Bevan sold his 50% share of the Electric Light Orchestra name and the rights to the ELO Part II name to Jeff Lynne. Lynne held the other half as the lead vocalist and sole constant member of the Electric Light Orchestra. Lynne currently retains the full rights to the ELO name.
So, when these former members broke out on their own, they became The Orchestra; a continuation of ELO Part II without use of the name. They released a limited run of their CD No Rewind in 2001. The group has been making music and touring as The Orchestra ever since. They regularly play shows in Chile, Argentina, the UK, Eastern Europe, and elsewhere around the world.
