The group has entertained at thousands of corporate events, private parties and weddings. The group played at Lincoln Center as part of First Night 2000 New York City which was hosted by Mayor Rudy Giulani.
In 1994 the orchestra was chosen to perform as part of Lincoln Center's Midsummer Night Swing series. The event was special because it was a celebration of Frank Manning's 80th birthday. Mr. Manning is known as the king of the lindy hop and the show also featured tap great Savion Glover. In 1996 & 1997 First Night New York featured the Clark Eno Orchestra at the Manhattan Center and later in '97 the band performed at Bermuda Jazzscape on a bill that included Chaka Khan, Nancy Wilson, David Sandborn, and Arturo Sandoval.
In 1998 Mr. Eno wrote King of Swing, a song about the McGuire-Sosa homerun derby. The tune was heard on ESPN on four separate occasions and was featured by Major League Baseball on the video The Record Breakers. The video was seen on national television and at stadiums across the country. In 1999 MLB used the song Come Out Swingin' (written by Clark Eno and Mark Templeton) at the Homerun Derby and All-star Game at Fenway Park.
The orchestra is led by composer-drummer Clark Eno. Mr Eno has studied drums with Tony Williams of the Miles Davis Quintet, Jack Dejohnette, and teaching legend Alan Dawson. He also studied piano with John Mehegan and Joanne Brakeen and has played with jazz legends Zoot Sims and Stan Getz.
The Clark Eno Orchestra features female vocalist Lorenda Robinson. Miss Robinson recently played a feature role in the short film Ignorant Bliss which won Best New Film Award at the San Antonio Cinefest. She also composed and sang the title song for the movie.
