Jerry Bruno Productions has set a new standard for live musical performance with this amazing band in your choice of sizes and configurations. Featuring the finest musicians and singers in the field, this group can literally play anything...with unsurpassed polish and skill.

The band was established in the Cleveland area by Jerry Bruno personally after his fourteen year "extended engagement" on the West Coast. While in L.A., Jerry's clientele included Mariel Hemingway, the casts and crews of "Cheers" and "Taxi," Jamie Lee Curtis, President and Mrs. Ronald Reagan, and many happy brides and grooms. Today, The Orchestra is led by band-leader and guitarist Dwayne Dickman.

The Orchestra is available in multiple configurations, the most popular being the 9-piece. This version includes the rhythm section, which is the heart of the band (bass, drums, guitar, and keyboards), three horns (trumpet, trombone & sax), and featured male and female lead vocalists (Marsha & Frederick). Optionally, you may also add on a second sax (making it a 4-piece horn section) and a string section of four or eight additional musicians...a grand experience for a grand occasion.

Band Member Bios:

Frederick Davis (lead vocals)
gained recognition in the 80s after releasing his self-titled single, “Gentle (Calling your Name)" on Time Trax Records, a Cleveland record label. “Gentle” was a national hit and reached #48 on Billboard’s Black 100 singles in 1986. Frederick signed a management contract with a Los Angeles based management company, Grant Management (GMI) and Norby Walters booking agency, which produced a mid-west tour.

Frederick’s single held the distinction of being the most popular R&B/Soul recording ever cut in the northeast Ohio area. In 1999, Vibe Magazine placed "Gentle" at #2 in the top 99 love songs of all time.

Today Frederick has established himself as an all-around performer and entertainer for any occasion. His comfortable stage presence brings excitement to any function.

Marsha Lawson (lead vocals) is a Cleveland native who has entertained audiences worldwide with her powerful voice and soulful charm! This high belting diva has performed internationally onboard Cunard's prestigious Queen Elizabeth II, Azamara Club Cruises, Celebrity Cruises and Disney Cruise Lines.

Marsha earned her B.F.A. in Musical Theater from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. As a member of The Orchestra and The 'A' Band she continuously demonstrates a solid foundation and fervent passion for performing.

Dwayne Dickman (guitar, band leader) started studying guitar when he was 13, and though self-taught, brings an incredible versatility to the instrument. This versatility was honed while backing national acts like Frankie Avalon and The Fortunes, and opening for grammy award winner Steve Tyrell.

Dwayne has played for and recorded several radio and television commercials, including those for Great Lakes Acceptance and the Cleveland Browns. He has expertly accommodated the needs of such clients as Ernst and Young, Jones Day, Stan Hywet, and the Cleveland Clinic Fundraiser. When not playing with The Orchestra, Dwayne can be found igniting the stage at local live music hotspots such as Brothers’ Lounge and The House of Blues.

Sam Romano (drums) comes from a musical family in which his mom, dad and brother are all musicians as well. He studied with legendary Cleveland drum instructer Bob McKee and attended Cleveland State University and Tri-C West for music. In the 1990s, Sam played with Sonny Geraci from the Outsiders and toured the midwestern and southern states backing up such popular oldies acts as Leslie Gore, Tommy Roe, Peter Noone and many more. He has been a proud member of The Orchestra since January, 1999. Along with The Orchestra Sam also plays in Rossi & Romano, a guy/girl duo featuring the talented Erin Rossi.

Mike Fisher (trumpet) played in the back up band on the nationally broadcast Upbeat Show, which featured pop music stars of the 60s and 70s. Since then he's honed his brass skills playing for numerous celebrities and shows. Venues include Palace Theatre, State Theatre, Ohio Theatre, Las Vegas showrooms and cruise ships. Before joinging The Orchestra, Mike recorded with the O'Jays and was Sonny Geraci's trumpet player for a number of years.

Bob Esterle (Saxophone, flute, clarinet) has backed up such artists as Bobby Caldwell, Olivia Newton-John, Sandy Duncan, Ray Charles, The Four Tops, The Temptations, Martha Reeves, The Platters, The Fifth Dimension, Rich Little, Joan Rivers, Hal Linden, Red Skelton, The Rat Pack (from Las Vegas), Michael Cavanaugh (from the Broadway Musical “Movin’ Out”), and the Guy Lombardo Orchestra. He has also performed for Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. Bob's recording credits include jingles for the Cleveland Indians Franchise for the cable sports program Tribe TV, the Prudential Insurance Company, Geauga Lake Amusement Park, the Summit Toy Company, The Dave Banks Big Band and various local radio stations.

Tim Keehn (trombone) has been a proud member of The Orchestra since 2009. He graduated from The Armed Forces School of Music and then played in The Army Band of New York City. Tim studied jazz trombone and composition at Manhattan School of Music, performed on Broadway in the pit orchestra of A Chorus Line, played with many salsa bands, toured the country as featured trombonist with Frankie Valli, Carol Channing, Rita Moreno and others. Tim was Musical Director of “Merv Griffin’s Coconut Club Orchestra” in Beverly Hills, is a member of Andy Dick’s comedy-band “The Bitches of the Century,” and is a friend of and performs with Slash of Guns N' Roses.
