Orleans

Orleans is an American pop rock band formed in 1972 in Woodstock, NY, by John Hall, Larry Hoppen, and Wells Kelly. Larry’s younger brother, bassist Lance Hoppen, and drummer Jerry Marotta joined the band in 1972 and 1976, respectively. The band is best known for its hits “Dance with Me” (No. 6 in 1975), “Still the One” (No. 5 in 1976), from the album “Waking and Dreaming,” and “Love Takes Time” (No. 11 in 1979). Orleans has produced a body of work spanning 17 albums and several DVDs. They continue to be in demand for live shows, as they have been for five decades now. The working live band, led by co-founder Lance Hoppen, includes brother Lane Hoppen, Brady Spencer, Tom Lane, and Tony Hooper. Like all other versions before it, this roster continues to deliver Orleans’ music with the class and integrity it deserves, to the delight of audiences everywhere.
