Repertoire

Cosmo Alleycats' core repertoire covers several lively categories of “vintage” dance music including: Swing, Big Band, New Orleans, Soul and R&B, and Motown.  

 

To satisfy the broader musical requirements of weddings and corporate functions, the band also performs song selections from other categories, including:  Contemporary, Jewish/Klezmer, Rock and Pop Classics, and Folk. 

 

Most importantly, we can custom-tailor our music to fit the theme of your special event. We welcome your requests.
