Not just another wedding band, The Pearly Shells are a Melbourne institution and the swingin’est band in town! .....And yes, they do a great wedding!

Over more than 15 years, THE PEARLY SHELLS have earned their reputation as Melbourne’s premier Swing Jazz dance band.

As one of Melbourne's most experienced and professional combos, we can guarantee..

 - atmospheric sounds and Hollywood style to set the mood
 -  irresistible dance grooves to get the party going 
 -  an enormous repertoire of songs  to bring people together on the dancefloor
 -  a long history of working with venues and MCs to make a great night!
    (We know the back way into all the nicest places in town!) 


The Pearly Shells specialise in the music of the Swing Jazz period (from 1930’s to late 50’s) including...

 - the early "THE GREAT GATSBY" period
 - the jazz Big Bands of ELLINGTON, BASIE and FRANK SINATRA
 -  the small combos of NAT KING COLE, LOUIE JORDAN and RAY CHARLES
 -  and the great jazz vocalists like BILLIE HOLIDAY LOUIE ARMSTRONG, ELLA FITZGERALD, FATS WALLER and PEGGY LEE.

And once people are on the dancefloor we like to keep them there with a wide range of "Roots" based music including:

- 50’s ROCK&ROLL
- 60’s SOUL AND POP
- MOTOWN
- LATIN GROOVES

As well as our Big Band, we also perform in smaller combos.
The most popular wedding line ups (given average budgets and guest numbers) are the PEARLY'S QUARTET, HOT 5 AND HOT 6

Please check our website for more details about the various line-ups.

What a fantastic night The Pearly Shells delivered! Bright, entertaining and personal, they fitted into the event perfectly and created an occasion to remember. They were happy to play requests and backed some of us when we had a sing which was tremendous fun. We couldn't recommend them highly enough.

The Pearly Shells are a perfect band for all ages and will guarantee even the most shy guests will be up on their feet and tearing up the dance floor! Steve and his team are a great bunch of guys, very accommodating and guaranteed to play an incredible set that your guests will talk about. Highly recommended!

Fantastic swing band, they had everyone on the dance floor. If you want something different than the average wedding band go for the Pearly Shells! Classy, fun music with no cheesy covers. The guys were punctual and well dressed too.
