Orpheus was chosen from a random, blindfolded, dictionary selection and has now created a group of talented musicians well beyond their years.
A group of 7 musicians with a love for music. Their belief in themselves was kickstarted after winning "The Grand" 2010 Battle of the Bands. They outplayed many bands with years of experience, walked away that night with $2,000 and quickly created a name for themselves in their hometown of West De Pere, Wisconsin.
Accolades include: Regional Finalist for Launchpad 2010 & 2011, Oshkosh DARE Battle of the Bands winner, voted "Best Young Band in the Fox Valley", WAMI nomination for "Rising Star" in 2011, Showcase Artist of the Year Nomination for LA Music Awards (Hollywood, CA), Top 10 School Jam USA Battle of the Bands recipient, and Top 24 for IAMFEST Chicago @ Elbo Room.
Performances include the famous Whiskey A Go Go (Hollywood, CA), Turner Hall (Milwaukee), Celebrate De Pere, Summerfest, Steelbridge Festival, Ball State University, Brown County Fair, Bastille Days, Elbo Room, Festival Foods Fireworks Over the Fox, Outagamie County Fair, EAA Hops & Props, Waterfest, Union Theatre in Madison, Jerry's Bait Shop (Missouri), and many others.
SKA music is in their soul - creating a show that will make anyone move. With their non-stop "skanking", riveting vocals, incredible rhythm section, and a horn section like no other....Orpheus is a must-see for anyone young or old!
