Extended Keywords: The Savoy Orpheans were a British dance band of the 1920s. They were resident at the Savoy Hotel, London, between 1923 and 1927.

The band was formed by Debroy Somers, an ex-army bandmaster, in 1923. Both the Orpheans and the Savoy Havana Band were under the management of Wilfred de Mornys. The Orpheans were later led by the violinist Cyril Ramon Newton, and by the pianist Carroll Gibbons.

When de Morny's contractual arrangement with the Savoy Hotel company ended on 31 December 1927, the Orpheans disbanded. Gibbons formed a new ensemble "the Savoy Hotel Opheans" for the hotel. The music writer Brian Rust wrote of this group, "it was a purely straight, typically smooth supper-club band."

The owner of the Savoy Hotel, Rupert D'Oyly Carte, called the original Orpheans and their colleagues, "probably the best-known bands in Europe".
I reformed this band for the Hotel when I was known as Peter fats Baxter
