Bob Bachelder’s Totem Pole Orchestra has a long and celebrated history. Back in the 50’s and 60’s they played at all the New England colleges and ballrooms. They rose to national prominence when their hit record, TV Rhumba, a medley of television themes, reached the Top Ten in magazine polls. In 1956, they became the house band at the Totem Pole Ballroom at Norumbega Park in Auburndale Ma where they remained for nine years, until the ballroom closed. The present band is a fifteen piece ensemble built around many of the original members, including vocalist Nancy Carr. Their musical offerings are bursting with nostalgia, featuring the styles of Miller, Basie, Ellington, and Goodman, plus many of their own arrangements from the earlier years.
