Ted Knight is a Florida musician leading bands for weddings and parties. From his keyboard-and-drums duo to a 20-piece big band, it's true live music with no recorded backgrounds. The World's Smallest Big Band has two horns, trumpet and sax. Add trombone and a second sax for Ted's orchestra, or still more horns for the Ted Knight Big Band. These groups can play pop and rock as well as jazz and standards. Then there's Crosswind, playing rock, reggae and greatest hits. Wedding ceremony music is also available, from classical standards to Beatles and classic rock played chamber music style. Ted doubles as a DJ, and plays iPod playlists on band breaks at no extra charge. A South Florida tradition since 1980, Knight Music is now available statewide and throughout the southeastern U.S.
