We are a ten piece band that consists of two male vocalists, two female vocalists, guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, trumpet and saxophone. Our instrumentation and diverse vocalists allow us to play a wide variety of musical styles. We provide a high energy dance party and our goal is to keep your dance floor packed all night long! We play continuous music throughout the party, which means no breaks and no Cd’s unless you wanted that for some reason. We play what’s appropriate for what’s happening during the party, so we keep it mellow during dinner time. Hopefully you get a chance to explore our web site and browse our song list. In addition to the songs you see there, we will learn up to three songs for your party. Our band manager, Phaedra will handle all of the pre-party planning with you and during the party and would be the person that acts as emcee and coordinates with your other vendors. That way, you can relax and enjoy the fun with your family and friends and not worry about the little details.

Our packages consist of a duo of piano or guitar, accompanied by a horn, for your cocktail hour and the full ten piece band for a four hour reception.

Renaissance has been in business for over ten years and during that time we have built a stellar reputation of professionalism, service and exceptional talent. The success of your party is of the utmost importance to us and we will go above and beyond to make sure it’s the party of a lifetime!

Book them today!!! The Renaissance Orchestra completely blew us away, they were absolutely incredible. I knew from my first conversation with Phaedra (the band manger) that they were going to be amazing. First an foremost they are excellent performers and they have a wide ranging repertoire! We had them play an Otis Redding song for our first song and it was better than I would have ever expected. They learned three songs for our wedding all of which were spot on!! They also played an acoustic version of a Bob Dylan and a Kooks song and they did both of them perfectly. They truly made our night perfect. Multiple people came up to me and said they were the best band they had heard at a wedding. Throughout the entire planning process Phaedra was one of the most professional vendors I worked with. She is extremely responsive, she got back to me within 24 hours every time!!! Every conversation and interaction with her is very profession, she is kind, friendly and she just gets that wedding planning can be stressful. I feel like every time I talked with Phaedra I just felt like I didn't need to stress about the music because it was all taken care of and I my expectations were exceeded. I recommend the Renaissance Orchestra with the highest reviews, they will truly make your wedding perfect!!!!

Fantastic band. When I looked back at the reception seating and saw no one sitting, I knew we had made the right choice. Professional, exceptional musicians, and fun. I hope my other two daughters get married in the area so we can hire them again!

What a party- when beginning our planning for the wedding reception, I had one goal in mind and that was for everyone to dance the night away. Mission accomplished! All 250 guests were up on the dance floor at some point and most got up after our first dance and hardly left except to eat!! People are still telling us what a fantastic time they had and they all mention what an awesome band we had. Renaissance Orchestra was stellar and I would recommend them to anyone!

I cannot fully express how amazing this band was! They learned three songs for us, one of which was a Phish song (not that easy) and they nailed all three. They really listened to our preferences and played genres that we selected. Not only are they wonderful musicians, but they are affordable (they are an independent band, so you don't pay extra to go through a booking company), responsive, and super professional. So many people at our wedding raved about this band, and they made our reception unforgettable! I will most certainly be recommending Renaissance Orchestra to anyone and everyone!

Renaissance Orchestra was everything you would hope a wedding band to be! Phaedra and Leon were amazing to work throughout the planning process so stressing about the band was something we never had to do. The dance floor was packed all night long. They learned our wedding song and a couple other songs for us and they sounded awesome. We were very pleased and our guests loved them. My Maid of Honor is now looking to book them for her wedding.

This band is BY FAR the best wedding band that I have ever seen. They did both of my sisters weddings and we knew that we had to have them. Phaedra is absolutely amazing to work with and will accommodate just about anything. They are based out of Philadelphia and made the trip to Virginia for our wedding. I can't tell you how many people have come to us saying that it was the best band they have heard and asking where we found them. They play fun, energetic songs and really get the crowd going. My mother-in-law is even planning on having them down at some point for when she has a party. I could write forever as to how much I love this band... But I will leave it at that.

Our daughter's wedding was held in Philadelphia on May 4, 2013. We cannot possibly find enough words to convey our appreciation and thanks for making her wedding "insanely fun" (as one of our guests commented)! Phaedra was gracious, warm and professional to deal with. She met with our daughter and her fiance to be sure that all the details were conveyed to her, and talked to us, her parents, as well. The music was phenomenal. Everyone remarked about the awesome sound of the band. The dancing went on all night. Even the representative from the venue's caterer said that they never saw so many people dancing for so long at a wedding. "The best wedding band I ever heard"..."Will the band go to our city?"..."How were you lucky enough to find them?"..."insanely fun"..."The most fun I have ever had at a wedding"..."Fantastic music".."I could have danced all night."...were only some of the many comments we received about this fantastic awesome music Our deepest thanks to Phaedra and the orchestra for your attention to detail, making the process so warm and easy, and most of all, for giving our daughter, her fiance and all of our 250 guests a night they will always remember with joy.

Phaedra of Renaissance Orchestra was wonderful to work with. She is very organized and responsive. She took my long list of suggestions and pared it down to a flawless evening of continuous music.
She also added to the band by including a congo player so that they could play some of our key songs.
Hiring them was one of the best decision I made for my wedding.

I was originally nervous about having a band at my wedding. But Renaissance totally rocked it! I didn't leave the dance floor and neither did my guests. They made our day even more special and fun. I can't thank them enough.
Great people to work with as well. Quick to respond and meet with (even though I am from South Jersey and they are from Philadelphia). If they didn't know a song we wanted played they knew it by the wedding. Hope to attend another event they are playing at. Yeah, they are that good!

The Renaissance Orchestra provided all the music for our wedding ceremony, cocktail party, and wedding reception. They are true professionals, and made our entire wedding fun, memorable, and easy. The ceremony music was traditional and beautiful. The ballads and standards at the happy hour were cool and classy. After dinner they cranked up the band and played a great mix of dance music from 60s classics, 70s rock and disco, to modern rock. As a former musician, I have a great respect and appreciation for the fine musical perormance that they did for us.

AMAZING. AMAZING. AMAZING. AMAZING. AMAZING.

I toured internationally as a professional musician for 4 years. I have a degree in Music Education. I now book shows for a large regional performing arts center with seating for over 3000 in our building. So, when I say I know quality musicianship and showmanship, I mean it. And, here, I say, "The Renaissance Orchestra" is AMAZING.

From first contact through the final notes of our wedding reception, the band was nothing but professional and talented. Phaedra and Leon did a great job heading the band, talking with us about what we wanted/didn't want, and then the group provided outstanding music througout our cocktail hour and wedding reception.

If I could, I'd turn The Renaissance Orchestra's review up to an 11.0!!

Renaissance Orchestra was amazing! They were full of energy, sounded wonderful, and played the perfect mix of music to appeal to all of the generations of guests. They had all of our guests out on the dance floor the entire night. The venue actually had to request people to sit down so that they could serve dinner! For months after our wedding my husband and I received compliments on how awesome our band was. Also, Phaedra and Leon (the band leader) took the time to get to know my husband's and my musical tastes, and they ended the night on the perfect song for us without us requesting it. Book Renaissance Orchestra, you will not regret it.

I cannot write enough good things about Phaedra and the Renaissance Orchestra. They were complete professionals throughout the entire process. Our Wedding was the weekend of Halloween so we requested that they play Thriller. It was their first time playing it and it sounded like they had been playing it for years. They are all extremely talented musicians and can play any song that you could ever think of. Our entire party was out on the dance floor all night. The energy was so intense that we decided not to have the cake cutting ceremony because everyone was having so much fun on the dance floor. It has been months later and we are still receiving compliments about the band. I truly am thankful for finding this band and I hope I go to a wedding in the future where they are playing.

Our daughter's wedding last week was such FUN! The dance floor was hopping throughout the entire reception! We had seen/heard Renaissance Orchestra at 2 other weddings and we were instantly hooked. We LOVE them! They are truly amazing. They played everything my daughter wanted, and played it well. They looked great and sounded great! They were so easy to work with, they were always responsive to our questions, and they have a huge repertoire. They handled every detail: ceremony music, cocktail hour, introductions, reception, etc.. I enjoyed the party because I knew we were in great hands! They know how to run a wedding party - our guests raved about the band, and how terrific they were. Thank you Renaissance Orchestra! You're the BEST!

LOVED THEM. my family is not known for dancing... in fact, they are known for NOT dancing. thanks to renaissance orchestra, everyone was dancing. it was really really fun, they played songs everyone loved and really kept the energy going all night. they provided different music during cocktail hour and dinner, and they rotated breaks so there was almost the full band playing the whole time. everyone said how classy and fantastic the band was. i was SO HAPPY i found them after talking to and listening to other bands (more popular/well-known bands in the area) that were in the same price point. i had almost given up on the search for a good band and they came along! thank you renaissance orchestra.

This band was the centerpiece at our wedding!!!! Our guests RAVED about them, and they made our reception the most INCREDIBLE party!!! They were extraordinarily professional, talented, AND reasonably priced. They played CONTINUOUSLY (no CDs or DJ in between sets -- they did not take breaks). We had guests asking for their cards throughout the reception because they were blown away. I HIGHLY recommend this band to anyone who is getting married or having a corporate event. I do not have a single complaint about them because they did an amazing job!!! If you want an extremely talented group of musicians and a highly professional band leader, you need to check out the Renaissance Orchestra!

Renaissance is the most amazing wedding band out there. They made our wedding more magical than we could have imagined, and our guests still haven't stopped raving about how much fun they had. The entire process was seamless and professional and the results were magnificent and flawless. Their repertoire is like nothing else out there and their talent is unparalleled. Our dance floor was packed the whole night, and we could not have been happier with our choice. Just perfect!

I first heard the Renaissance Orchestra play at my brother's wedding. I HAD to have them at my wedding a year and a half later! They did a great job with the music, working with other vendors, and keeping the dance floor full! They dress to impress, are good people, and will learn up to 3 songs. They learned the NFL Monday night football theme for my brother's wedding and learned MGMT's "Kids" for my wedding. It was a surprise for my husband since it is his favorite song. We were announced as husband and wife to it and they later played the song in it's entirety. They did a great job with both songs. I think having the Renaissance Orchestra at my wedding really was the icing on the cake! Our guests raved for weeks and still talk about them! One of my friends is getting married in May and as soon as she got engaged she booked them! I can't wait to hear them play again! Thank you so much for making my wedding dreams come true!

The Renaissance Orchestra was beyond what I could possibly have hoped for for my wedding. From my first contact with Phaedra, the manager, they were extremely professional, responsive, and courteous. At the wedding, their high-energy mix truly pleased everyone, from my eighty-year-old grandparents to my teenaged cousins -- I had to keep reminding myself to take a quick break from dancing to go get a glass of water because I was dancing so much! My guests were on the dance floor ALL night, dancing to all of our favorites. They played all the songs we requested, filled in the mix with other great choices, and emceeded perfectly. I honestly could not have asked for anything better, and was thrilled with them from day one all the way through when we made our getaway at the end of the night. HIGHLY recommended!

Josh and I couldn't have asked for anything better. From meeting the band through planning the wedding and the actual day's performance, The Renaissance Orchestra was extremely professional and a pleasure to work with. They went above and beyond to help set up sound for our actual ceremony, which wasn't part of the actual contract, but they were more than happy to help since they get their early to set up. The best part about the band is that they will be the life of your reception. All our guests had a wonderful night because the band got everyone up and dancing. They never stop playing and countless people commented on how fabulous the band was. As you probably know, the band can make or break your event, so if you are looking to have an event that people remember and comment on for weeks after, I would highly recommend contracting the Renaissance Orchestra. Thank you again for everything - Katie

I was uneasy at first about booking a band for our wedding. We've mostly been to weddings with DJs or a wedding band that was stuck in the 80s. Phaedra and the rest of the Renaissance Orchestra were were not like that at all, they were FANTASTIC. I very rarely rate anything all 5's, but if I could rate them higher I would. The band never took a break, learned 3 songs for us, and did an excellent job feeling the crowds "vibe" and choosing what to play. Everyone left the wedding saying how great they were and asking for their cards. You can't go wrong with these guys, they were definitely money well spent.

Renaissance Orchestra was the perfect choice for our wedding. From the first moment I heard them I knew they were the best band in this area. Phaedra & Leon are very easy to work with and personalize the wedding for you. We asked them to learn "Rosalita" by Bruce Springsteen and they nailed it! (It was my favorite part of the reception) Towards the end of the night my cousin asked to rap with the band and Renaissance was thrilled to have him up there...All of the members of the band are so talented...and, the best part, they do not take breaks. The party starts and does not stop...you would be a fool not to hire Renaissance for your wedding!

I would without a doubt recommend Renaissance Orchestra for your wedding. The music rocked, they played what we wanted and were flexible and creative (hello marching band!), they had the dance floor packed from start to finish - and even played an encore (Never seen that at a wedding). The entire band were professional and they did not sound like a cheesy average wedding band. They are a legitimately talented group of musicians who play weddings (they play many other events as well). Phaedra, the band manager and mc, ran everything to perfection. I honestly could not recommend them any more (hence my gushing) - you will not be disappointed!

The Renaissance Orchestra is AMAZING. They were absolutely the highlight of my wedding - literally all of our guests, young and old, were up and dancing the whole night. This band is beyond talented and completely worth every dollar. Their band manager, Phaedra, is so easy to work with. I planned my Pennsylvania wedding from Texas, where I now live, and Phaedra was extremely responsive and helpful. She put me at ease in the planning, and she did an amazing job keeping the evening flowing from bridal party entrance announcements, to toasts and the cake cutting, everything went off without a hitch.

The Renaissance Orchestra was a great band to have for our wedding! Being a musician myself I am very critical of bands and their talent and viewed at least 10 other bands prior to choosing the Renaissance Orchestra. Their Band Manager (Phaedra) was very easy to work with and well organized. The band itself is a talented and diverse group of people and they far exceeded my expectations. I would HIGHLY recommend booking the Renaissance Orchestra for your next event.

Renaissance Orchestra performed at my older sister wedding, and as soon as we decided to have a reception in the philly area my parents only had one band in mind. They have a diverse set list and do a great job of creating a party atmosphere. Our reception was just a big dance party and they brought it all night. I only marked down value a little because they were significantly more expensive than the band at our other reception. However, they have more band members, more songs, and they brought more life to the party, so they are still a good value.

We loved this band! We had so many people out on the dance floor the entire wedding, they really got people moving. Plus they never even took a break, they just rotated one person out and each took their break seperately so the music never stopped. All our guests commented about how great the band was.
We were very happy with the whole experience.
