Ann Arbor's big band

shut and musicians available. Ann Arbor's Monday-night big band, the Paul Keller Orchestra, has finally grown up: it will celebrate its eighteenth birthday this month.

The fifteen-strong unit started out at the now defunct Bird of Paradise on Ashley Street. When the club closed and moved to Main Street, the band followed, but it eventually wound up back in its old location when Susan Chastain opened the Firefly Club in the location vacated by the Bird. Name changes accompanied these moves, but the group is now known as the Paul Keller Orchestra, and the leader also runs a CD label named PKO.
