Renfrow, Houston's popular on-air personality at KQUE Radio for 21 years, will bring his "Ballads, Blues and Classic Swing, Too." He and his orchestra have performed in venues throughout the state of Texas and surrounding areas. The band doesn't get trapped in any one style, performing your favorite dance music from their wide-ranging repertoire that plays to any age and taste with dynamic, visual impact and dramatic flair. This is swinging music, bound not by era or genre but by quality.
