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!

Wedding in San Antonio, TX on 07/28/2007
"They were amazing!!! Just simply perfect...They were exactly what I looking for..only better :)"
- Kimberly S.
Wedding in Liberty, TX on 06/16/2007
"Jimmy and his crew were very professional with all aspects of their performance. They were a big hit with the party. I would hire them again.....and that is hard to say because I am a musician in a band myself and could use the work!! If Jimmy did not play the drums (very excellant I might add)I would see if I could fill in with them!!
Great Job to the ORB."
- David D.
