Countless People remember with nostalgia the tradition of Guy Lombardo with his Royal Canadians playing at New York's Waldorf Astoria on New Year's Eve.

Since the death of Guy Lombardo in 1977, "Auld Lang Syne" has continued to be performed by various bands before enthusiastic audiences throughout the world.

Those who look back to the Big Band era also remember that distinctive recognizable style - the exaggerated vibrato of the saxophones, the clipped brass phrases, and a vocal styling that immediately identifies the orchestra as Guy Lombardo's.

The band was founded in 1916, the Lombardo Orchestra is the longest running act in show business history, now playing to the great grandchildren of the original fans.

The band intorduced over 500 hit songs, more than any other musical organization.

The Lombardo New Year's Eve Party was the longest running annual special program in radio history.  1979 marked their 50th consecutive broadcast.

On television they performed for more than 1.5 billion viewers since they first telecast their New Year's Eve Party in 1954.
