CTO Grand Central® is an impossibly versatile band. They have a diverse and ambitious playlist, tackling anything and everything: classic rock, swing, soul, eighties pop and rock, all the way to the latest Top 40 hits. Their flexibility stems in part from the fact that the band sports six talented vocalists, all of them able to sing lead or harmony at any time. The band was founded by bandleader Martin Savery, a multi-instrumentalist with a Springsteen rasp, and fronted by a phenomenal male/female vocal duo.

"One of my friends commented that the first dance song they learned for us (Iron & Wine - Such Great Heights) was done so well he didn't realize it was being played live! CTO Grand Central really helped bring our special night to the next level. Everyone had a great time and we danced all night!"
