About
Original Recipe Entertainment - After 26 years serving and playing in the US Navy, we at Original Recipe have been meeting the entertainment needs of Central Texas clients since 1998. Find out what true service is with Original Recipe. A quote from O.R.B. assures you that we are your top shelf choice of entertainment from Austin, Texas. Our core band is nine piece with complete horn section, rhythm section and our two male and one female vocalist. The band can be adjusted in size to fit both your logistical and economical needs. No gig is too large or too small for O.R.B. The key is our flexibility. From solo pianist to fourteen piece big band, with or without a D.J. mixed in - Original Recipe will meet not only your budget - it will fit your special day's vision perfectly. One of our most popular offerings to our clients involves the small band, a trio or quartet covering the cocktail hour then three 55 minute dance sets with the eight piece band of three horns, four rhythm and three singers. The dance tunes come from our library and from your specific choices. Using the small band to start your event and moving to the larger 8 piece is a very smooth, high class way of entertaining your guests. It's the best of both worlds at an incredibly low cost!

Original Recipe is true variety. Swing, pop, Motown, rock, country and much more! We specialize in wedding receptions, birthday and anniversary celebrations and corporate and private parties. We provide complete entertainment services to your event.

The ORB was the perfect band for our wedding. They are extremely talented and played all the best wedding classics for us. The entire 250+ wedding loved them and we got countless compliments and referral requests about them during and after the wedding. James and his band really helped make the wedding night magical and we would highly reccommend them for anyone looking for a fun, upbeat, professional and talented group of musicians to rock your night away.

Working with this band was incredibly easy and we were so thrilled with their performance . The manager of the band is extremely responsive over email. My husband and I had special song requests and lists of things we wanted to hear, and the band couldn't have been more accomodating. The band learned 2 new songs for us (for the father-daughter and mother-son dances) and performed them beautifully. The older guests had a blast dancing to the jazz and big band numbers, and then ORB cranked it up a notch later in the evening for all of our younger guests. There was never a lull on the dance floor; people had a GREAT time. This band is ideal for a FUN wedding!!!

This band was incredible. I was a bit nervous picking a band through a website but there was no reason to be hesitant. They were energetic and entertaining from start to finish.

While I was very impressed with the open communication and professionalism of Original Recipe prior to the wedding, it was their performance at the reception that truly impressed me the most. Jimmy and his group provided a performance far better than I ever could have expected. I would recommend this group to anyone - more than that, I would tell them that they HAVE to have Original Recipe play at their event.
