PUBLIC PERFORMANCE/VIEWING NIGHTS:

Our weekly residency for the last 7 years – Every Wednesday night at Melbourne’s iconic Botanical Hotel @ 169 Domain Rd. South Yarra from 6.15 to 9.15pm in the rear lounge

Feel free to come down for some very fine food or drink, make a song request and sit back and chill out – entry is free, parking is easy and the mood is very relaxed. Please contact the Botanical on 9820 7888 or at www.thebotanical.com.au for more information.

Please note that we play our ‘Lounge Jazz’, ‘Great American Songbook’ and swing material (think cruisey, background, dinner type music) rather than our Pop/Soul dancing repertoire at the Botanical due to the style of the venue. Please refer to our YouTube channel for Live/Raw gig videos for our dancing repertoire www.youtube.com/orlandocombo

* While our standard dress code for private events is lounge suit we will be wearing more casual attire at The Botanical due to the venue.
