Croaker and the Honeybee were a dream to work with. They have an unlimited repertoire and even learnt a Hawaiian song on the ukulele for our ceremony. Organisation was seemless, we just told them the time and place. They were the perfect accompaniment to a heavenly day and their music is absolutely sublime. We love Croaker and the Honeybee and would recommend them to anyone for any indoor or outdoor event.

Thank you Rosalie, It was truly an honour to play for such a beautiful couple. You made us feel like we were part of the family! I've never seen such a relaxed bride before...don't know how you did it! And Clarke's Beach at Byron Bay was such a dream location. What a spectacular day! All the best for your future together love Croaker and the Honeybee

Get ready for something out of the ordinary! Why? Because I'm reviewing the "Honeybee", and she sang like an angel at my wedding...and then I married her! A little back history is needed. We booked our sax players band 'Acid Bleed' (a year in advance) but 3 weeks before our big day, our venue rang and said, "So sorry, but we double booked."With 3 weeks to go, we had limited options. We had to change venue and dates and the band was no longer available. So...pre-recorded music was our only option. To my joy and surprise however, after the service my Honeybee sang for me! It was love at first sight all over again. It's not only me who is touched by this shining light. She loves love, and when she sings at weddings there is a palpable authenticity and feeling of love & delight that she emanates!
