Introduction: Our act performs approx. 220 times a year. Around 175 of those are weddings and rehearsal dinners, but we also specialize in private parties and corporate events. Each musician employed by the Bonfire Orchestra for band performances has more than 10 years of experience, and each is a multi-instrumentalist. For DJ performances, one of our experienced DJ's will be provided. The DJ will be available to MC, but the microphone can also be available for any announcements, toasts, etc... When booked, the band or DJ will happily accommodate the specific genre and performer requests of the clients. Don't hesitate to get in touch with any other questions or comments! -Michael Thomas The Bonfire Orchestra We love bringing our love for music to the vast variety of clients with whom we work.

I am pleased and honored to write a review of Bonfire Orchestra. The most qualified and trusted name in entertainment in the mid-south. Their eclectic sounds and electrifying personalities really bring the life to the party. No matter the event, I always think of Bonfire Orchestra.

I am the manager of a privately owned restaurant at which Bonfire Orchastra has played multiple times and we continue to book them due to their ability to be easily contacted, their willingness to change, and their overall great music and covers! We love Bonfire Orchastra and so do our customers!

We had the bonfire orchestra for our wedding ceremony and reception! They are so fun and charismatic, very attentive to detail and time, and overall the best company to work with for any event! Michael Thomas offers a wide variety of styles and equipment to make your special day just that! My family and friends loved them! And I will always think of them first for any event!
