Welcome to PaulDeRitter.com

Great music and fine people! 

Paul and the American Legion Band of the Tonawandas won the National Band Competition in Minneapolis on Saturday, Aug. 27.


Paul De Ritter and Doc Severinsen


  Our ability to perform with 2, 3, 4, or 5 musicians allows us to cater to venues and budgets large and not so large.  We play the Great American Songbook which has been very well-received in Central Florida and New York - standards, big band, love ballads, swing, rock and roll, waltzes, latins, line-dances and ethnic songs.  Our repertoire includes tunes from the late '20's to the 70's

with some newer tunes to keep us current.  All of our music is appropriate for listening and dancing.  As you can see from our video, we also present concerts.

Our audiences appreciate choosing the tunes that we play from our laminated library list.  I like knowing that we are playing their requests!  The more we involve our listeners (and dancers), the better they like it.  We also include some popular standard ethnic songs for fun (Italian, Irish, German, Jewish).
