Welcome, please excuse our dust

Welcome from the Boston Typewriter Orchestra.  A couple of weeks ago our main site was hacked, requiring us to restore from an archived copy. As we’re just a bunch of guys on manual typewriters, this has taken a bit more time than we’ve liked.  Please be assured, we’re still around and playing, and we’ll have our web presence up and going just as soon as we figure out how to load the archive disk into our newest Smith Corona.  Until then, if you need to contact us, please email: bto@bostontypewriterorchestra.com

Thank you,

Alex for the Boston Typewriter Orchestra

RRKennison video

Thank you to RRKennison (do we know you?), who created this really awesome typewriter porn montage using our latest single “Entropy Begins in the Office”

Entropy Begins at the Office single

Enjoy our latest single, “Entropy Begins at the Office.” Rumors that the song lines up with the 1988 romcom classic “Working Girl” are completely unfounded.
