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

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, background set break music or a DJ dance set later in the evening if required). 

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 live wedding ceremony music. We can work in with your celebrant to enhance the atmosphere by entertaining your guests as they arrive, playing for the Bride/Groom's 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. 

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

Orlando Combo Jazz Band were amazing at our wedding and strongly recommend them. They created the perfect sophisticated, chic yet relaxed vibe for our special day. From our very first contact with the band when we made our initial enquiries, to the very last song at our wedding, they were a dream to deal with- pleasant, professional and very vey accommodating. I could not have asked for a more perfect jazz band for our wedding day

Thank you for having us as your Jazz band Kim and Tim and also the kind words. So glad you were happy with our performance and it was a fantastic day and a fantastic venue choice at the Collingwood Children's Farm - stylish but relaxed. Hoping to see you soon at a gig. All the best, Lucas & Orlando Combo jazz

We are so glad we had Orlando Combo play at our wedding. What professionals! What passion for music! From the minute we inquired till after the wedding, their communication was efficient and no problem or request was too much! We were lucky enough to have some guests join in with the band which added to the fun and made it an even more special and fun occasion. Lucas, the band manager, was easy to talk to and incredibly accommodating. And compared with other Melbourne jazz bands, Orlando Combo are such amazing value for money. True professionals who we would recommend to anyone having a wedding or throwing a special party. The guests and we loved their awesome music.

A legendary couple and much appreciated kind words coming from such a musical family. The night turned into one big Jam with Brides father sitting in on guitar and guests singers etc. Thank you and all the very best....Lucas & the Orlando jazz boys - Venue; Immerse winery Yarra Valley

Absolutely brilliant. From first phone call to post-wedding debrief, I could not have been happier with the guys. it only would have been half the event without these guys. Even now, nearly two months later, all my friends and family are asking about the band.Two thumbs up.

We loved making the road trip up to Bright to play for you two beautiful people....A highly memorable wedding in an old school town hall and not to mention the arrival of the coffee van!! ...a masterstroke and should be mandatory at all weddings!!! Very well done Adrian and Marika. Thank you - Lucas/Orlando Combo crew

Lucas and the rest of the band were an absolute dream at our wedding. They were able to seamlessly transition the music from background during the ceremony, to light jazz during drinks and dinner, to having everyone up and dancing by the end of the night. Lucas was extremely open to feedback and was proactive about making suggestions to ensure our guests had the best possible time. We received a lot of compliments on the day and wouldn't be at all surprised if we saw them at a friend's wedding in the near future.

Orlando Jazz band were just perfect for our wedding. They were professional, lovely people and incredible musicians. They knew when to slow down the music (during eating etc) and when to speed it up and get people of the dancefloor. Our guests made lots of comments about how great they were.

Orlando Combo were a pleasure to deal with in the sunup to our wedding. Helpful, flexible, friendly, exactly what you want when wedding planning. And then the music itself, they did an acoustic set on the lawn they were fantastic, great sound, really tight, you can easily tell the band has been together a long time. They can play a wide variety of music and were able to judge the mood to get people dancing. We would absolutely recommend Orlando Combo!

They were wonderful! They did exactly what we requested, a combination of jazz music and a country western song for our first dance. Just wish we heard a demo of our first dance song before the actual night.

Many thanks to Lucas and the band for great music at our wedding. We had a 5-piece Jazz band and you can't beat the real, live thing. Everybody from 8 to 80 was dancing! Lucas also offers an MC service which saved on looking elsewhere. A great night, thanks again.

Orlando Combo jazz band  

Thank you Jess and Phil! 'The Terrace' at the Royal Botanic Gardens was a great venue selection and perfect weather on the day made it even better. It was a pleasure to play authentic Jazz for a real Jazz enthusiast and Glen Miller's 'Moonlight Serenade' for the bridal dance was a highlight. All the best....Lucas/Orlando Combo crew
