The Becca Kaufman Orchestra (BKO) plays all styles of music - from Frank Sinatra all the up to what's currently on the radio today (and everything in-between).
R&B, Rock; a great party is a wide-variety of music- it's a little something for everybody... and that's what we hit on right from the get-go. Our specialty is modern. We want it to sound like it sounds like in your car when you're jamming to it. We don't want to give you our version of it - we want to give you their version. Live, in-front of you and feeding off each other.
BKO is comprised of some of the top musicians in Chicago who live their lives making music. We are a collection of talent, musicianship and personality that is unparalleled. With star vocal talent, world class musicianship, band/DJ combinations and state-of-the-art sound systems, BKO offers an energetic, versatile live music experience.

Becca feels privileged to have a life and career in music. Leading her own Becca Kaufman Orchestra for the past eight years, Becca brings style and verve to every celebration. Becca’s passion and love for all genres of music—Top 40, R&B, 80s, Motown, Jazz Standards—shine through every BKO performance. From elegant weddings to galas to intimate backyard occasions, Becca and BKO have performed throughout the Chicago area, as well as in other states. Showcasing a wealth of Chicago event experience, prior to BKO, Becca performed with numerous Chicago society bands, including The Ken Arlen Orchestra, The Don Cagen Orchestra, Orchestra 33 and The Ralph Wilder Orchestra, and led The Wilder 2 Orchestra for five years.
Becca has appeared on stage with performers such as Lily Tomlin, Brooke Shields, Phoebe Snow, Tony Roberts, and Ellen Burstyn. Recently, she performed in front of 18,000 people for Millennium Park’s Broadway in Chicago concert as one of the wives in First Wives Club. And, should you wonder where her hometown loyalties reside—she has sung the National Anthem for both the world-champion Chicago Bulls and her forever-losing New York Knicks. Becca is ecstatic to be working with such a dynamic and versatile group of musicians for such great clientele.
