About
The genuine live Jazz experience from Melbourne's best working band. Create an atmosphere of SOPHISTICATION, JOY & ROMANCE on your most important day...

Orlando Combo are fully vaccinated and ready to perform in line with all government requirements.

With the experience gained from over 500 wedding performances.

Orlando Combo performs regularly at all major Melbourne events including; the Australian Tennis Open (5 years), AFL Grand Final, Presidents Cup golf 2019, Melbourne Cup at Flemington (12 years), Commonwealth Games, Australian Grand Prix etc. Our CORPORATE CLIENTS include BHP, L’Oreal, Ericsson, Ernst and Young, ANZ, CBA, NAB, Pfizer, Telstra, IBM, LendLease, PWC, Amcor etc.

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.

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, MICHAEL BUBLE’, 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/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

…..”We strongly recommend the Orlando Combo.”

Yours sincerely

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.

· Covid-19 Update

I am advising those enquiring/booking at this time that if the current Covid-19 restrictions are still in place by the time your date comes around then events can be postponed to another suitable date without penalty –Lucas Evans

NO DANCE-FLOOR? NO PROBLEMS!! In order to make your event ‘Covid-safe’ there may be restrictions that don’t allow a dance-floor (or singing) at your function due to social distancing rules. In this situation a live Jazz band is ideal as we can still perform more of our ‘Lounge Jazz’ repertoire to entertain and create ambiance without playing our more upbeat dancing repertoire. We can adjust our repertoire on the day in line with the requirements.
