The Orphans have been a mainstay in the music scene of the upper Midwest for 2 decades carving out their niche with their harmony-rich sound. Founded in 1991 with 3 acoustic guitars and 3 voices, the band has grown over the years into a dynamic 5-piece band that stays true to the original Orphans creed: "Play songs that everyone know and love that no one else will play."
It is impossible to go to an Orphans show and not hear a song you've loved all your life! We have our roots in the singer/songwriter genre but maintain a large variety of melody rich songs that appeal to multiple generations.
