From our compact acoustic Trio line-up for sophisticated background music through to our Quintet for lively Swing and Soul dance material, Orlando Combo can provide the genuine live Jazz experience for your venue or next event.

Through the experience gained from over 2000 performances (including 500+ wedding bookings) the Combo has gone on to become one of Melbourne’s best working bands, offering professionalism, reliability and outstanding musicianship at a reasonable price.

The band takes up minimal space and is discreet with equipment, being fully aware of the visual importance of wedding and corporate function work. Our standard attire for private events is lounge suit; sharp ‘vintage style’ presentation in keeping with our musical genre.
Being regular performers at the Spring Racing Carnival and various functions in Melbourne’s parks and gardens the group is able to play without a power supply if requested. The Combo also travels to the Peninsulas, rural Victoria and interstate for performances.
