PK&RSO from Detroit specializes in swing from the mid-1930s through late 1940s. Its sound is influenced by Count Basie and Harry James and has covered the top swing venues throughout the Midwest. The band has been nominated for Detroit Music Awards including Best Big Band/Swing artists, Outstanding Jazz Vocalist and Outstanding Jazz Instrumentalists.

The PKO is one of Michigan's finest, oldest, most respected and well-traveled jazz bands.  The PKO has held forth every Monday night, for over 26 years, in Ann Arbor, first at the Bird of Paradise Jazz Club, then at the Firefly Club & Keystone Martini Bar and now at the Zal Gaz Grotto. The PKO's voluminous library of over 1,000 arrangements includes classic, obscure and original big band material from the entire history of jazz.

Dancers of all skill levels are welcome. Many come just to enjoy the sights and sounds. Dress is semi-formal or vintage attire. General admission begins at 6:30 p.m. with a dance lesson from 7 to 8 p.m. The band will hit the stage at 8:15 p.m. and perform until midnight. There is a cash bar available throughout the evening.
