The Arrhythmias Big Band has been playing at venues all over
the North Country since 1977, when it was originally formed under the direction of Dr. Fred Taylor. The Band's "coronary" name derives from the presence of many medical personnel in and among the well over 140 area musicians who have performed with the group over the years.

The group has been featured in various North Country coummunity concert series, benefit dances, and fund raisers, and regularly rehearses and performs at area nursing homes and public housing units for the entertainment of the residents.
