Then, we move our portable gear to the canapes location and get started on our next batch of acoustic earworms! 
  • Canapes and Reception. After the canapé set, we move to the main reception where our larger PA is already set, ahead of time. 4 x 45-minute sets or 6 x 30-minute sets over a five hour reception. , however, we are extremely flexible and will work around your run sheet for the day. 
  • Reception. Generally, be 4 x 45-minute sets or 6 x 30-minute sets, however, we are extremely flexible and will work around your run sheet for the day.

We chose our wedding date around the availability of Something Borrowed Duo. It was a double wedding, and we were not sure what we wanted or how it was going to work out. The only thing we knew if that we wanted them, and they did not disappoint, making our day even more special than we could have dreamed. These guys are dedicated professionals, and they know weddings. We had a perfect wedding, without any stress. Our guests were blown away by how great the music was, and friends and family are still talking about how fabulous they were. My friends are now trying to come up with a reason to have another celebration just to get them back playing music so that we can have another fantastic party!!

Adam and Brendan are absolute champions! We met Adam and Brendan at our venue open day and locking them in for our wedding day was one of first and easiest decisions we made. From the moment we met, we loved their positive energy and great sense of humour, even during the struggles of COVID-19. They were so professional, accommodating and down to earth through the whole process. They were excellent at communicating the whole way through and nothing ever seemed too much trouble after countless phone calls and emails. We were well supported and guided by their years of experience in the wedding industry, which made it so effortless. Our guests were amazed by their talent and their ability to play right through the whole day and night, they were excellent.

Brendan & Adam, I've been dying to find a minute to thank you both for your fantastic work at our wedding on Saturday. You guys were truly a pleasure to work with through the whole process and most importantly your music was a hit with our family and friends right from the very start. Your acoustic work at the ceremony was superb (we got many comments on how wonderful you sounded) and the atmosphere you provided through all aspects of the night was perfect. Not only did you have a great song list of your own, you read the cues to keep the dance floor full all night. You were even more than willing to accept requests (from both cultures) making the experience enjoyable for all! Finally, I cannot sing your praise highly enough for how adaptable you were regarding the timeline and set times. Like most weddings, I'm sure, we ran extremely late and struggled to fit in the planned sets so you happily accommodated and once the dance floor was open, played for at least an hour and a half straight (without a break or food) to help us keep the party going! That was completely beyond our expectations and we cannot thank you enough. As we've been catching up with our family and friends in the aftermath of the wedding, almost every one of them have commented on how great the band was and most of them even noticing how you played without a break, making the back end of the night a wonderful talking point! So one last time, we'd love to thank you both soooooo very much and let you know how much we appreciate the work you put in. You will be highly, highly recommended to everyone we speak to! Love, Tania & Terence Upoko 😊 xox

Thanks you so much guys!! We had a great time. All your friends and family were fantastic and we absolutely loved the island dancing. It was awesome to watch. Honestly, it was our pleasure to keep playing right through and as you said, 85% of weddings do not run exactly to time so I'm just glad we could make up the dancing time for you guys.

Thank you so much for your amazing work at our Wedding, it was perfect and we are so thankful for your great energy! Could not have asked for anything better!!

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. We were so happy with the music and that so many people joined us on the dance floor, and we had such a great time. Your MC service also made it hassle-free for us which was nice to have one less thing to plan. Thank you for helping make our big day even more special!

Fantastic! We went with something borrowed too . We had our wedding cancelled 2 times and the band was happy just to shift the date and keep the same pricing. They were great. They allowed us to change up the songs last minute and we’re heaps of fun

We had Les and Darren at our wedding in May 2021, they were absolutely amazing, I couldn't fault them. They were extremely professional and was by far the best decision to have them at our wedding. They performed during our ceremony, canapés and reception and was our MC for the night, we received great feedback from all our guests about how amazing they played. They made everything run so smoothly and played every acoustic song to perfection. They create such an amazing fun vibe that everyone gets ups to dance on the dance floor.

What a pleasure it was dealing with Les and Rowan from Something Borrowed, they were truly wonderful to deal with even during two covid related postponements, nothing was too much trouble and they were professional and accommodating all the way along. Les made an awesome MC for the evening and the photo booth was a hit with guests young and old but onto the important part the music was spectacular, the acoustics played during our ceremony we will remember forever, Les's vocals set the tone for the whole day and once the reception moved into party mode they moved effortlessly into all the classics to get the crowd up and dancing. Without a doubt the biggest endorsement i can give these guys is that my lovely bride is already wanting to plan another event just so we can have Les and Rowan back to provide the entertainment.

Something Borrowed were absolutely fantastic, with their ceremony music the absolute highlight of our day. Adam and Brendan did a great job as MC's for the night as well, engaging everybody, keeping things light and fun but keeping everything on time and on track. They were great in picking the right songs to get everyone up on the dancefloor as well. Highly recommend these guys, they are fantastic.

Adam and Brendan were nothing short of amazing. From the start of arrangements to the big day they were attentive, responsive, professional and super friendly to deal with. My sister and I had a double wedding so you would think it would be double the stress, however we planned pour special day around these guys and can honestly say it was the best celebration and day of our lives. Our guests are still raving about it.

The loveliest, charismatic and absolutely hilarious guys. Kept everyone laughing, engaged and supported us (bride & groom) through the whole night. Both of the guys are so uplifting, providing the best dance music to suit all ages.

19 Apr 2021

Adam & Brendan are AMAZING. From the initial contact we knew we had made the right decision. Apart from their amazing voices they are professional, accomodating, funny, and down to earth. I highly highly recommend this awesome duo

Thank you so much Adam and Brendan for providing the beautiful music and great MC skills for our wedding. The music all night was absolutely perfect. We loved the acoustic versions of the special songs we had chosen for our ceremony and reception. The dance floor hits that got every single guest up and onto the dance floor were one of my favourite parts of the night. We had positive comments from our guests about the beautiful music all night. You are both truly so talented. Adam and Brendan also acted as our MC for the reception and they were absolutely fabulous. The guys were the perfect mix of fun, energetic, polite and in control of the night. The entire reception ran so smoothly. Adam and Brendan are both knowledgeable, talented, extremely professional and very responsive to emails. They were the perfect choice for our band and MC.

Something borrowed were absolutely incredible. The acoustic set they did when guests were arriving was fantastic. They then played one of my favourite songs as I walked down the isle and the nailed it. It made the moment so special. They also play music that literally got everyone at the wedding on the dance floor. My family is Irish and they included some Irish music. This meant so much to my family. I had lots of guests ask me where I found Adam and Banga. They made our day so special. Couldn’t recommend them enough. Absolutely incredible.

Brendan and Adam set the scene for the exact wedding we had envisioned and we couldn’t have been happier. From the first time we heard them play at a bridal expo , we knew we had to have these guys play at our wedding. They were so easy to deal with and made all the planning feel so easy and they met all our demands and requests with no hesitation. On the day they also Did the MC work and were so great, we always wanted a fun and energetic wedding and they did exactly that . The music speaks for its self and both compliment each other so well and we had many guests asking who they were and that they were the best they had heard at a wedding before . Thankyou for helping make our day as special as it was .
