About Reflections

“Reflections” was formed by its present leader, Paul Bastone, in the Spring of 1999.  It is a recognized, non-profit 501(c)(3) Community Organization. We rehearse weekly and perform regularly throughout the year. All the members of the band (both professional and amature) are all volunteers who receive no salary but are rewarded by the good feeling they get from performing for diverse audiences and the knowledge that they are helping to preserve the Big Band sound. Their dedication is further bolstered by the applause and verbal appreciation they receive from their audiences. We welcome your suggestions so please don’t hesitate to drop us an email at contact@reflections109.org

          We extend special thanks to Roy Nicolosi for providing our fantastic rehearsal space.To Exxon Mobil for granting funds to purchase music and maintain our equipment, individual contributors, and of course, the various organizations,Town Recreation Departments, Hospitals, Churches, and Temples that invite us to perform and provide the operating revenue that insures our continued success!
