The Philadelphia Jazz Orchestra was founded in 2003 by Joe Bongiovi, Rob
Reeve and Yorgo Papadakis. The concept behind the band was to keep
motivated and talented students playing their instruments during the
summer. The Band had no intentions of ever performing, just
rehearsing. At the end of the summer, a few parents suggested a fund
raising performance at a Pizza Hut in Buck's County, Pa so that Mr.
Bongiovi could be reimbursed for the money he had spent on music. As
the "great pizza gig" approached, the band was forced to come up with a
name. After being put on the spot with about 30 seconds to think about
it, Mr. Bongiovi gave the band the hideous name of "The Summer Swing
Fling Big Band". This name would obviously be changed later.
