On Saturday, September 10, 2022, the Maple Leaf Club Dance Revival was hosted as a tribute and fundraiser. The event, which sold out, took place at the historic Maple Leaf Club from WWII. Proceeds from the dance benefited the St. James' Anglican Church Community Loonie Lunch program and The Orillia Sharing Place.

Since that event, the Orillia Big Band has become highly sought after. For more information, please refer to the links below.'
