The Sammy Jensen Orchestra has been enjoyed by ballroom dancers for as long as anyone can remember. It was first organized as more of a polka band by Sammy in 1939 and then reconstituted after members returned from WWII. Sammy sold the band to musician Irv Peterson of Marshall, Minnesota in 1981. Under Irv's direction and with his amazing arrangements of tunes from the Big band era, he expanded the playing area of the orchestra and the group has been heard throughout the Midwest as well as south to Texas and west to California. In addition to being a successful band leader, Irv operated the Peterson Music Store in Marshall for 30 years serving nearly all of southwestern Minnesota. The Sammy Jensen Orchestra has received numerous awards and was selected by the National Ballroom and Entertainment Association as one of two bands to play on their 1989 Big Band Caribbean Cruise featuring Irv's daughter Kelly Peterson. In 1998, the orchestra was inducted into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame. The orchestra has recorded several CDs.
