He has been a professional music arranger since 1941 & arranged music for the Count Basie Orchestra, U.S. Air Force Band and U.S. Marine Band.

In addition, he played trombone in the big bands of Tommy Dorsey, Woody Herman & Gene Krupa.

The Garden City Big Band was formed in Christchurch, New Zealand in 1992 with the aim of promoting and performing both older and contemporary big band music, & for most of its life was led by Stu Buchanan. Lana Law is thrilled to lead the band as they showcase their favourite Sammy Nestico numbers.
