“RJ Unplugged played at our wedding on Mt Tamborine. Richard did solo acoustic music which was amazing and really made the atmosphere at the wedding. My husband and I were so lucky to have him. With all the stress we didn’t really have suggestions for songs but Richard asked us a few questions and then nailed the playlist! We even had guests comment that he was incredibly talented and he was able to fit the mood of the wedding perfectly (beautiful slow songs in ceremony - fun songs to dance the night away too). Richard also MC’d for us which was incredible as it allowed the rest of our family and friends to enjoy the night with no worry. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough for weddings!” Nikki

What you can expect when working with RJ Unplugged for your Gold Coast wedding:

 

  • Beautiful music. RJ Bentley and his sister Jessica are highly experienced performers, with this pair having played their beautiful music at weddings, private parties, gigs and corporate functions across Queensland. You'll love their ‘energetic, bright and rhythmic sound’ and quality voices.
  • Quality vocals. As mentioned above, you should expect top-notch vocals from this gifted pair. These two can harmonise perfectly, covering well-known songs with ease - all the while incorporating their own twist.
  • Extensive song list. RJ Unplugged has an extensive song list for couples to choose from! This team performs a wide variety of genres and can play both slower songs and upbeat tunes to get guests on the dancefloor. So whether you’re after some Fleetwood Mac, Whitney Houston or Ed Sheeran, RJ can make it happen.
  • Tailored packages. While RJ Unplugged offers a range of flexible and convenient wedding packages, you might be after something a little more specific, which is why RJ tailors wedding packages to suit his clients’ needs - hurrah!
  • Ceremony to send-off. RJ Unplugged can play music at every stage of your wedding, including for the aisle entrance, registry signing, reception bridal party entrance, cake cutting, and first dance.

 

“He was absolutely BRILLIANT! They really made a great night into one of the best nights we have ever had. We go and see a lot of bands and musos all the time and RJ is right up there. He had the whole party rocking all night and was that good we arranged for them to play an extra 2 hours. I highly recommend anyone looking for a first class musician to get in contact with RJ.” David

 

Here’s what else you need to know about RJ Unplugged. 

 

  • Solo or duo. RJ Unplugged can perform as a charismatic solo or duo ensemble - it’s entirely your choice. When performing at weddings solo, RJ uses his vocal depth and rich, rock acoustic sound to enchant and delight guests. However, when they perform as a musical duo, this brother-sister team harmonise and command the room! You can’t really go wrong with this choice...
  • Private events. RJ Unplugged is often booked for weddings, however, they may also be booked for private parties, anniversaries, birthdays, engagements, corporate events and other social gatherings.
  • Gold Coast and surrounds. While guitarist and vocalist RJ is based on the Gold Coast, he happily travels to the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and regional Queensland to perform his beautiful music at weddings.

RJ Unplugged travelled to Adelaide for our wedding and boy did we appreciate that. He was absolutely amazing, accommodated what songs we wanted him to play but also had a wide range of songs for us to choose from which was fantastic. We’ve had so many people compliment Richards singing. He was amazing!! Such a great voice! If you book you won’t be disappointed. Communication was great, prompt response and always there to answer any questions we had. Thank you for making your presence on our special day one we’ll never forget.

RJ was absolutely amazing at my Wedding in October. He is the best in the business! RJ was very professional and easy to communicate with from start to finish. He provided helpful information about setting up the wedding song list. He made an extensive run sheet and discussed everything with us. RJ made us a demo for our aisle song which was incredible and still love and listen to. The demo version also came in handy for our ceremony rehearsal so we could time our aisle walk to perfection. He networked with the celebrant and the venue to ensure a smooth day. RJ also MC for us. He was able to keep the formalities of the night on track while still providing a happy, relaxed atmosphere. We couldn’t have done it without him. He managed everything so we could enjoy our night with family and friends without any stress. RJ made my dreams come true by being able to play acoustic guitar for the ceremony and being able to DJ at the reception. He has an incredible talent, everyone at the wedding has raved about him. We highly recommend RJ.

We had RJ Unplugged at our wedding on Mt Tamborine and it was fantastic. We had such an amazing day and many of our friends & family commented on the music in the weeks after. Having live music was a really special part of the day and the song choices made it all the more memorable. Would highly recommend RJ Unplugged!
