A Brief History
OrlandoBands.com was started around 2003 as a volunteered, and seasonal based project by Ben Gardner. It wasn't until 2008 that the project was moved off the back burner and was heavily pursued. The support and services offered have aided thousands of musicians and help to expose local talent. Most of the services found on OrlandoBands.com are free of charge to artists and industry professionals. The project formed as a company in 2011. Recently, our team has experienced tremendous growth and establishment in the community. We look forward to working with you!
