The book may be fiction, but the mention of the Jerry Bruno Orchestra echos testimonials we receive every week from happy clients.
This fact was brought to our attention by our friend Theresa Hahn of The Ritz. As Ms Smigel doesn’t appear to be a past client of ours, we wonder if she enjoyed the band at a local corporate event or friend’s wedding. Regardless, we are flattered!

Thank you to Fallon’s Photography for sending us these official photos from the fabulous event, Viva La Rock, at the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. Viva La Rock was a private party put on for Cleveland businesses to get to know how great a venue the Rock Hall is for events. For the night’s entertainment, the Rock Hall asked Jerry Bruno Productions to produce the entire evening of musical entertainment.
“I worked with Pete often…years ago,” said Jerry Bruno. “It must have been fate when he walked back into the office last year. He immediately became our go-to fill-in for many of our bands, and then when we needed him most he was able to step right into this key position. Of course we all miss Chris, but we’re all thrilled to have Pete in the Orchestra.”As a keyboardist, producer, composer and recording engineer, Pete Tokar has been an active member of the areas music scene for over 25 years. As well as performing with numerous area groups, composing soundtracks and jingles, Pete has a long and distinguished discography in the recording industry. He has received several gold and platinum record awards and performed, engineered and mixed the 2008 Grammy Award winning track “In My Songs” by the late Gerald Levert.
Pete has also worked with artists such as Eddie Levert and The O’Jays, The Rude Boyz, Men At Large, Jim Brickman, The Neville Brothers, REO Speedwagon, 3LW (Disney’s Cheetah Girls), Teddy Pendergrass, Anita Baker, The Winans, Tamia, Michael Stanley, and Humble Pie drummer Jerry Shirley.
In addition to his duties as keyboardist with the Jerry Bruno Orchestra, Pete has spent the last few months working on an album for 2007 American Idol runner-up, LaKisha Jones.
