Orlando Combo can provide your wedding with the genuine live Jazz experience from Melbourne's best working band (Est. 1996)

With the experience gained from over 500 wedding performances

Real instruments played live by highly skilled musicians - no electronics, samples, loops, backing tracks, drum machines or gadgetry

- Please note; Orlando Combo is an actual band and not a music agency or 'franchise'. Unlike some groups we only accept one booking at a time rather than multiple bookings on the same night

From the smooth Jazz as your wedding guests arrive for pre-dinner drinks, to the background dinner music sets, bridal waltz and lively dance brackets, Orlando Combo has the experience and professionalism to CREATE AN ATMOSPHERE OF SOPHISTICATION, FUN, JOY AND ROMANCE ON YOUR MOST IMPORTANT DAY

Repertoire comes from the swing of LOUIS ARMSTRONG and Vintage 1920's 'GREAT GATSBY' era

- Standards and show tunes of FRANK SINATRA, NAT KING COLE and 'The Great American Songbook'

- Cool sounds of MILES DAVIS, GEORGE BENSON and the 'BLUE NOTE' record label era

- Old school R&B of LOUIS JORDAN and RAY CHARLES

- Retro 1950's & 60's Rock & Roll party starters of CHUCK BERRY, FATS DOMINO and THE BEATLES

- Dance-floor Soul/Motown classics of VAN MORRISON, STEVIE WONDER, MARVIN GAYE, SAM COOKE and AL GREEN etc

From our compact acoustic Trio line-up for sophisticated background music through to our Quintet for lively Swing and Soul dance material. We specialize in making a seamless transition from SOPHISTICATED JAZZ and LOUNGE to accessible DANCE-FLOOR SWING and SOUL CLASSICS to appeal to a range of ages

Our repertoire is carefully selected to suit our instrumentation as we are a 100% LIVE BAND - no backing tracks, electronics, synthesizers or cheesy-tired-typical wedding band material

....."We strongly recommend the Orlando Combo."

Yours sincerely

By dealing directly with the bands manager (and therefore avoiding the additional 3rd party costs of a booking agency) our clients are able to receive the highest quality wedding entertainment at a reasonable price.

Orlando Combo provides all the necessary equipment for the band to perform including lighting and PA (which can also be used by clients for speeches/announcements or a DJ dance set later in the evening if required). This can be a way of catering for all your guests musical tastes without the additional cost of engaging a DJ. A cost effective and compact live Jazz band and DJ combination! We also supply recorded setbreak background music.

Wedding Ceremony Music - On request Orlando Combo can also use an acoustic/mobile setup that is perfect for a pre-dinner drinks set as your guests arrive (outdoors or in a foyer) or for wedding ceremony music. We can work in with your celebrant to enhance the atmosphere by entertaining your guests as they arrive, playing for the arrival/Processional and during the break for the signing of the register and then again at the end for the Recessional. We can then move inside for the reception.
