Orquesta Mayor, played expertly and had everyone dancing and singing along with the great songs they picked for our event. We recommend them wholeheartedly.
Our staff at White Tent Event can't say enough good things about you guys. As event planner, we have heard and contracted with many bands and DJs through the years. I can honestly say Orquesta Mayor is one of WTE's favorites on our "Best" list. I think we enjoyed your music as much as all the guests. We appreciated your cooperative spirit from the time we contacted with you. Also, your DJ couldn't have been better? You really helped make the evening a big success. Several times I saw the waiters and waitresses dancing down the hall! How could anyone not want to dance with the terrific singing and hot Salsa music your group produced. We have already told so many people about you. I hope we will have the opportunity to work with you again real soon.

Orquesta Mayor made my wedding so special. Their professionalism is above and beyond. They are exceptional, and even played an extra song after they where done since people asked. They will always have a special place in our hearts for making our wedding unforgettable!!!!!!!
I heard this band at several functions in Charlotte NC and Columbia SC. We needed a band for New Years Eve 2011 in Greensboro, NC. This band was my top choice, "Entertainment Extraordinaire". They came and performed with such professionalism that everyone was on their feet from the first number to the last, they are that good. Look forward to doing business with them soon.
I saw Orquesta Mayor last year accompanying two of my favorite salsa singers Domingo Quinonez and Hector Tricoche. The band did a great job, they played amazingly. I danced all night with their incredible latin rhythm sound.
