Peter Palmer, His Voices and Orchestra, a
relatively new group, has been contracted to
play at the Homecoming dance October 29, ac
cording to Ron Gould of the Corn Cobs.
Palmer and his mixed sextet and 11-piece
orchestra "is fast becoming one of the top
entertaining organizations in the dance and
concert field," according to Gould.

They have played at sev
eral colleges and universities
including Notre Dame, Miami
(Ohio) University, Iowa State
University and Bowling
Green University in Ohio.
Peter Palmer has combined
the musical sounds of Neal
Hefti, Ray Conniff and the
Lambert, Ross and Hendre
icks group into one of the
most interesting musical pre
sentations in popular music
today, according to Gould.
Palmer believes dancers
today aren't satisfied with
good dance music alone. They
want to be entertained as
well. For this reason Palmer
usually sets up his engage
ments with a one hour con
cert followed by a dance.
Palmer's latest Mercury al
bum is "A Swingin' Love Af
fair." Palmer features popu
lar standards because he feels
these types of songs will last
much longer than some of the
current popular hits that are
on top today and forgotten
in a few weeks. Palmer has
picked material for all his
albums that seem to be the
top requested songs at his
dances, Gould saia.

school when he organized his

of Palmer's group today was
