Melbourne, VIC, Australia

The Radio Rhythm Orchestra was formed in 1989 by trumpet player and arranger Ian Hellings for the purpose of bringing the finest music to the people. He has built a library of over eight thousand arrangements so that the band can play almost any musical style and cater for any function.

The styles include; present day Top 40 Hits, Classic Jazz, Swing Era favourites of Glenn Miller and Benny Goodman, in fact, all popular music this century, from Ragtime through the Jazz age, Swing Era, early Rock n Roll, to the present. Include to that all Latin American, Continental, Ballroom and New Vogue, Novelty Dances, Jewish Horas, Italian One Step, Greek Classics, Strauss Waltzes, Musicals and light Classical, Polkas, Mazurkas, or any other step devised by music lovers the world over.

How do we do it?

We have the original authentic music, along with hundreds of current song arrangements, which is one of the finest collections in Australia, but even more importantly, the personnel is a fine blend of Contemporary Pop, Rock, Jazz, Latin and Symphonic Music Specialists of long experience in all facets of performance.

The standard size of the orchestra is seventeen to twenty five piece and beyond, but can be reduced to a small band also, suiting specific budget needs.

You may choose the musical content yourself from our repertoire, or leave that in our experienced hands to plan the evening with you.

The Radio Rhythm Orchestra has performed at many prestigious occasions including large corporate functions, weddings, gala balls, dinner dances, anniversaries, concerts, jazz festivals, live television and radio, and celebrations of all kinds and nationalities.

They have two CDs to their credit, "The Golden Age of Dance" and "Two Thirds of Five Eighths"

The Radio Rhythm Orchestra is a complement of enthusiastic musicians and entertainers who love playing music for people and making every occasion a great success.
