The Alex Rene' Big Band would like as many people as possible to make an ornament that represents the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum. This can be a fun project for both children and adults, all while helping a true Western New York treasure!

Alex Buncy (bandleader of the Alex Rene' Big Band) and his wife, Thelma, volunteer at the Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum in North Tonawanda, NY.

Last December, they attended the Festival of Trees at the Niagara Power Authority in Niagara Falls (NYPA). They viewed dozens of artificial evergreen trees decorated by area non-profit groups for the festival. Each tree highlighted the important facts, goals, and activities of their organizations.

This year, they would like to have an Allan Herschell Carrousel Tree, which would aim in introducing others to the unique educational and fun aspects of our museum. The trees are provided by the New York Power Authority (NYPA), and guests are invited to enjoy the all-new state-of-the-art exhibits at the Niagara Power Vista.

The Alex Rene' Big Band is a professional 18-piece big band recreating the sounds of the "Golden Age of the Big Bands." Featured are the bands of Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Harry James, and many others. The band also performs newer music, big-band style!
