About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

The Tim Marin's "Nite Hawk Orchestra" combines big time class with big band brass. Bassist and arranger Tim Marin recently established this ensemble with a goal in mind of making the classic American big band sound accessible and affordable for a variety of events and venues. With 6 horns and both male and female lead vocals, the arrangements are meticulously created to sound flush and full. They salute all the greats from the American Songbook and all the great big bands of that era - Duke Ellington, Stan Kenton, Benny Goodman, Count Basie, etc. with songs you know that were performed by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Louis Prima, Louis Armstrong, and Ella Fitzgerald. Performing in black-tie and stylized bandstands add to the overall ambience of the event. The versatile Night Hawks can be configured into a smaller combo ranging from a trio to a quintet for performance at events requiring a smaller group. Often, a trio will perform for a cocktail reception in front big band dancing post dinner. Our extensive & eclectic also includes the jazz, swing, jump and blues, with an entire repertoire of Roaring 20s music for a "Gatsby" themed events, as well as a complement of horn-loaded modern pop, soul, and R&B. The musicians comprising the band are professional, friendly, and fun, and are some of the best players that Chicago has to offer, having performed across the country in a multitude of groups and configurations. They are warmly received at corporate events, weddings, and private parties alike. The Tim Marin Orchestra will develop a musical program tailored to your needs and is happy to entertain special requests to make your event memorable and meaningful. Give us a call, and swing the night away.

Cocktail PartyReviewed on May 29, 2021From Chicago, IL

Tim and the band were just spectacular! We were so impressed with their talent and they were fun, professional, on-time, and a joy to have as a part of our event. I highly recommend them!

Community EventReviewed on July 21, 2018From Evanston, IL

Tim organized a duo to perform at my grandfather's elder care facility and was a big hit. I truly appreciate how he took sometime to speak with my grandfather about some of his favorite tunes and artists. It was a special event and I could not recommend them more!

WeddingReviewed on January 13, 2018From Chicago, IL

Our guests raved about how awesome the band was! They were very professional and really put me at ease in my preparations for our wedding. I would hands down hire them again for any event. I hope to soon have a reason to work with them again. You will not be disappointed. We had a 1940 themed vintage Hollywood wedding and the band selected wonderful music and played beautifully.
