WeddingReviewed on May 26, 2013From San Francisco, CA

I don't usually do reviews, only when the experience is exceptional, as is the fantastic performance that Fil Lorenz and his orchestra lent to our wedding reception. From the months planning ahead and coordinating, Fil was gracious, professional, and insightful, balancing the desires of my bride and I with his decades of professional experience, with which he and his orchestra brings a deep and meaningful understanding of jazz, blues, and soul. Fil provided us with his eight piece band, boasting an incredibly soulful horns section, strong keys, bass, and guitar, and amazing vocals. Yes. This is THE band.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on October 13, 2012From Tiburon, CA

Fil Lorenz and the Fil Lorenz Orchestra were incredible, to say the least. After spending months searching for the right band for our wedding, I finally booked the Fil Lorenz Orchestra, and I am SO happy that I did. Fil was reliable, accommodating, organized, and accessible anytime I needed anything. He took all of my special requests and made them happen effortlessly. Two month after the wedding, people are still coming to me all the time talking about how incredible the band was and asking me "where did you find them?!" I'm still trying to come up with excuses to hire them again. Overall amazing - 12 out of 10 stars.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on December 10, 2011From San Francisco, CA

I worked with Fil to put together a 4 piece band for my 50th birthday party. The theme was 1961 and I wanted a band that could play the standards. From the beginning Fil did a great job of providing information and suggestions. He was also very responsive to my questions and requests leading up to the event. The party was a great success and the band was a major contributor to that success. Jonathan Poretz as the lead singer was fantastic. I didn't think it was going to be much of a dancing crowd but by midway through the evening the dance floor was full. Thanks again for making my birthday a memorable one!
