Orlando Big Band
Where music and philanthropy meet

The Orlando Big Band or OBB is the only authentic Swing Band in Florida playing original transcriptions of the greats. The band began 4 years ago with the purpose of recreating in detail the live music of the Big Band Era. The Orlando Big Band wows audiences with its dedication to the classic charts and sounds that pulled America through some of the toughest years on record.
Nobody plays the Twenties like the Ramblers! Performing with their sister group, the Dixielanders, they are ready for rock and roll 20's Ramblers' style!
The Peacock Wind Ensemble plays the band classics in a 34 piece classic setting. Sit back and enjoy all the sounds from this premier musical group.
