Hi Lucas and band,

Kind regards and thanks again, Will and Helen - Stones Of The Yarra Valley wedding November 11, 2022

NOTE; Orlando Combo is an actual band and not a music agency or ‘franchise’. We only take on one booking at a time. Some groups take multiple bookings for the same date all performing under the one band name, this is not how we operate. 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. Prices start from $1500 for our Trio up to $4000 for our larger/deluxe options.
Thanks Lucas – you guys were the highlight of the reception! Just fantastic!
Thanks again, Vanessa West - RACV Club, Melbourne
From the smooth Jazz as your wedding guests arrive for pre-dinner drinks to the background dinner music set, 'first dance' and lively dance brackets, Orlando Combo has the experience and professionalism to create an atmosphere of sophistication, fun, romance and joy on your most important day. We specialize in making a seamless transition from sophisticated Jazz to accessible dance-floor Swing, Soul, Motown and Rock & Roll classics (if required) to appeal to a range of ages. If you are looking for a group that can supply the style and class that only a Jazz combo can provide but are concerned it may be too laid back for later in the evening, then fear not – Orlando Combo has earned a reputation for being the most dance-able Jazz band in town. Please be aware though that we are certainly not a ‘Top 40’ style pop cover band.
....."We strongly recommend the Orlando Combo."
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' records label era
- Old school R&B of LOUIS JORDAN and RAY CHARLES
- Retro 1950's & 60's Rock & Roll party starters of CHUCK BERRY, THE BEATLES and ELVIS
- Dance-floor Soul and Motown classics of VAN MORRISON, STEVIE WONDER, MARVIN GAYE, SAM COOKE and AL GREEN etc
John and I can’t thank you and the rest of the band enough for your performance on Saturday night – it was absolutely fantastic!
We all had such a great time and everyone has remarked that the music was one of the highlights. I never thought I’d see a conga line winding its way through the NGV, and even some of our non-dancing guests were breaking out their moves on the floor! All our muso friends were also super impressed with the Leslie!
So thanks again and we’ll be down at The Botanical soon to enjoy some more.
Best wishes, Michelle & John
From our compact acoustic Trio line-up for sophisticated, instrumental background music through to our Quintet with vocals for lively Swing and Soul dance material.

AMAZING OMG. We booked Orlando Combo (quartet) for our wedding at Quat Quatta, – Wow wow I don’t even know where to begin.
These guys were FANTASTIC and my guests were so blown away by the songs they played. They literally took care of everything. Wish we could have our wedding all over again just to hear these guys play again. Lots of our guests got on their feet and danced all night! Even my usually shy uncle was doing the wiggle. They’re extremely professional, promptly answered all my emails and were just so accommodating.
We’re so glad we made the decision to have these guys play. Love all of the songs!
Thank you so much Orlando Combo for giving us a celebration to remember! You guys are just awesome!!
