About Our Band

Package Goods Orchestra (PGO) members have been in the business of making music for more than 25 years. Long-time Ocean City residents Bette Kaminsky and Bill Johnson, along with Barbara Fiedler, Steve Fiedler and Steve Friedland of Galloway Township, make up this talented musical group.

Individually, they bring extraordinary musical experience to the group, including singing in area choirs, performing in regional musical theater, singing backup for Rosemary Clooney and participating in more than 15 different Delaware Valley bands. Together, they bring strong harmonies and fresh arrangements to all of your favorite songs.

Aside from appearing in area clubs and restaurants, PGO was the headline act for Gaskill Park’s “Concerts Under the Stars” in Mays Landing, Wheaton Arts Festival of Fine Craft and Eco-Festivals in Millville, just to name a few.

PGO’s music runs the gamut – folk, rock, country, swing, torch and R & B. Audiences of all ages will find plenty to sing along to from the Sixties and Seventies. In addition, PGO has revived some musical gems from the folk and swing era. PGO pays tribute to great artists like:

The Beatles, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, The Eagles, The Mamas and Papas, Great Big Sea, Van Morrison, Everly Brothers, Linda Ronstadt, Simon and Garfunkel, Patsy Kline, Roy Orbison,
Ella Fitzgerald, The Kinks, Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks, Credence Clearwater Revival, Grateful Dead, Tom Waits, Loggins and Messina, Bob Dylan, The Band, Elvis Presley, and many more…

PGO’s arrangements and harmonies put a new “shine” on this timeless music. They incorporate a wide variety of sounds into their shows, from acoustic guitar to electric ukulele, from a cocktail snare to a full-bodied djembe, along with a host of bells, whistles and other unique percussion instruments to add a twist of whimsy.

Entertaining, educational, affordable programs can be tailored to any audience or venue. For more information, contact Bette Kaminsky at 609- 391-0972 or 609-576-1414; or Barbara Fiedler at 609-652-0816. Peace, Love and Music!
