Orient Express Band

Orient Express

The love affair continues... Bringing music and entertainment to weddings, parties, and special events.

The Orient Express Band got its start in the NYC/Long Island/NJ Metro area in 1985. And now, celebrating it's 35th year in 2020 , we have re-invented ourselves to separate us from the rest of the pack.

...And how did we do that?
Writing fresh new arrangements of literally every kind of music that's expected to be played at private / public events: namely, pop music. We've discovered that you can review hundreds of wedding bands around the entire country on Youtube and sadly,for the most part, they all pretty much sound the same, right? Well, OEB will have nothing of it!

 

With absolutely the finest musicians, singers, arrangers... all within the band itself, the skies the limit! That's why Orient Express Band has a sound like no other. With a combination of two lead vocalists, OEB delivers a wide range of musical styles.

OEB is known in Western NY as a band that has no peers when nothing but the finest in live entertainment is required. Wedding music, corporate events, concerts and festivals are a perfect fit. The proof is in the pudding as they say!

We'll make you proud to have OEB for your special event!

When looking through the scale, it is easy to give anyone 5 stars on everything, however, the Orient Express is a group that truly deserves it. With every problem I came to them with, they came with solutions and exceeded all expectations. They brought energy to the party as well as professionalism that made the party all the more fun and classy. People were enjoying them so much that as they were almost ready to go I asked for an extra 30-minutes to keep the party going and they readily accepted with smiles. If you are looking for a fun group to spice up your party, look no further than the Orient Express.
- Review by Andrew F. - Ithaca NY

Orient Express is awesome! They brought so much energy to our wedding reception and were very accommodating of our somewhat lackluster scheduling of events. Everything went seamlessly. I think even Charlie Sheen would have been impressed by our wedding just as a whole. It was seriously better than most I've seen in those weird celebrity gossip shows (not that I ever watch them). Orient Express was instrumental in making this a reality!
