Since the spring of 2004 Vocalist Nancy Evans has shared many wonderful photos and memories of her 38 years with Wayne King and His Orchestra.

Wisconsin: Eagles Club in Milwaukee
Illinois: Willow Grove Ballroom in Willow Springs
Florida: Tupperware Auditorium in Orlando; Court of Flags Hotel in Orlando; Auditorium in LeHigh Acres;

The 1979-1983 orchestra included two originals from the 1927 Aragon debut of Wayne King and Orchestra: Violinist Herb Miska and the "Waltz King" himself.

Vocalist Nancy Evans joined Wayne King at age 14 1/2 in 1945 when Wayne King reorganized his band after serving 2 and 1/2 years in the U.S. Army during WWII.

Vocalist Ed Bolton was Wayne King's last male vocalist having joined the band in 1979, touring through to Wayne's retirement tour in Florida in 1983. Violinist Tasker Day was responsible for Wayne discovering his last new vocal star, ED BOLTON. Wayne once told Ed Bolton, "You have an unusually beautiful singing voice. If I'd have known about you years ago, I'd have used the hell out of you."

Some orchestra members from 1979 to 1983 were:
Manager/Bus Driver Gail Bruening;
Violinists/(Original 1927 Orchestra Member)Herb Miska and Tasker Day;

Vocalists Nancy Evans of Florida and Ed Bolton of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania;

1st Alto Saxophist and Clarinest Don Korinek of Omaha, NE
Alto Saxophonist Ed Soellner of Orlando, Florida
Tenor Saxophonist Lloyd Pollitz of Davenport, Iowa
Larry Opsohl of Florida , Tenor Saxophonist and Bass Clarinetist Lou Virvo;

Trombonist Billy Hearn of Waco, Texas, 1st Trumpeter Leo Ortyl, Bass Fiddler Wally Shrumpf, Unknown Trumpter from Albuquerque;
Drummers Jimmy Featherstone and Wally Gordon
