About Us

Orchestra 33 provides high quality, sophisticated live music performed to ensure the best in musical entertainment. Whether your group is 80 or 800, Orchestra 33’s experience and talent provide the right music for your special event.

Orchestra 33 began as the exclusive in-house entertainment for the legendary Rupert’s 33 Club in suburban Chicago, performing five nights a week for five rewarding years. This success won accolades from fans and music critics alike, prompting the opening of similar Rupert’s clubs in Minneapolis, Atlanta and St. Louis. Orchestra 33 has since gone beyond the club scene and into hundreds of venues and events worldwide.
