Questions and Answers

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

I have no idea what band size I should be booking! What do you recommend?

Craig Francis Music

We offer multiple options for wedding entertainment in Melbourne and Victoria. We design your entertainment based on your budget, venue size and any other specific needs. We play as an 8-piece band with male and female lead vocals and horns in the premium package. Our most booked packages are the 6 and 7 piece bands and it’s always LIVE and always fun!

Can you play at our engagement party?

Craig Francis Music

Definitely, and if you book your wedding with us as well, we can do something a little extra special for you too.

Do you offer MC and DJ Services?

Craig Francis Music

Yes, DJ and MC services are included in all live band packages so there’s no need to ask a family member or friend to help you out if they’re not confident. Our professional DJ and MC services keep the party moving during formalities and in the short band breaks when the dance floor is jumping, so you can let all your guests relax and enjoy the night!

I’ve heard other bands use roster systems and karaoke style backing tracks. Do you do this?

Craig Francis Music

No, we believe in great LIVE music with great musicians who play together all the time. We are well rehearsed, tight, and often showcase 3 and 4 part vocal harmonies. We are a professional and tight-knit group of musicians and we love playing as a wedding band!

How long will the band be playing at my wedding?

Craig Francis Music

Our packages include up to 5 1/2 hours attendance featuring multiple sets of live music, and background music all controlled through our sound system. Set times can be adjusted to fit in with your running sheet and formalities and organised at the pre-reception meeting with Craig. We think great wedding bands must be flexible to keep the party going and we work to accommodate you and the formalities on the night.

Great experience from meeting with Craig from Craig Francis to organising the big day and not to mention the fantastic band on the day! The band are seasoned professionals who play with each other regularly so on the day they rock it and our guests loved it! Band comes complete with MC, DJ and band so whatever your needs Craig Francis can cater to them.

We hired Craig Francis Music to provide entertainment and MC services at our wedding reception. Without a doubt, it was the best decision we could have made. From the moment we went to one of their live auditions we knew they were the band for us and Craig made the lead up to the wedding easy with his friendly, clear, timely communication. Craig performing MC duties at our wedding was great as it took the stress out of having a family member or friend cover the role, and we knew with Craig everything would go seamlessly. The highlight of the night was of course was the performance. Craig crafted a set based on our choice of genres, critical song list, and the vibe of the room on the night. They even belted out a number of our song requests live, which I was expecting would be played in the DJ intermission. The band worked together seamlessly, and together with the amazing voices of Jessica and Craig they were able to keep everybody up and dancing the entire night. Our guests absolutely loved them and we have heard nothing but positive feedback about their performance. A massive thank you to Craig and his team for helping to make our night unforgettable.

Craig Francis Music band were exceptional and made our wedding truly perfect. From start to finish, the communication and ease of organisation with Craig himself, to finalising the set list and running of the day and night was 10/10. Even in a Covid era, Craig held meetings with us via Zoom and pieced together the perfect plan of music from live duets during the ceremony, with great canapés music, through to the most amazing set-list and performances during the meal and party into the night! The musicality from each one of the 7 piece band was sensational and they are all incredibly talented at what they do. We cannot thank them enough.

Had Craig Francis band booked for our wedding. Craig was the MC and I could not complaint, he ensured that everything went smooth, always asked if we needed more time to eat or want to go ahead with next speeches etc. Our final meeting before the big day, we did not have much confirmed in terms of songs and run down, but Craig made us relaxed and everything went well! Fantastic band members! Everyone enjoyed the night and got up dancing, we requested a specific song to be played for our first dance (Just the way you are - Billy Joel) it was a hard song, but they killed it, even the sax player did a good job. Would definitely use again for any parties or event in the future.

We were really happy with our choice to hire Craig Francis for our wedding. We had a lovely 5 piece band with Bernie as our lead singer and they did a truely superb job. We got lots of compliments about the music and the guests loved the night. Would highly reccommend!

Highly Recommended, We had a 400 guest wedding, so our choice of music was important to ensure all our guests would be up dancing all night. Our 7 Piece band was the perfect choice, Jessica and the team created a fantastic atmosphere that did not disappoint! String Trio at the church was a perfect touch also. It could not have gone any better, so happy we went with Craig Francis - Thank you :)

We were so happy with our 4 piece band for the wedding. So professional and talented, our guests loved dancing the night away! We really appreciated the way Craig helped us to choose music that would flow well through the night - his advice was really valuable.

Craig & team are professionals and the best at what they do. They catered a program specifically for our wedding day and are very easy to coordinate with. We highly recommend Craig Francis Music for your guest entertainment.

Craig assisted with putting together the run sheet and choosing the special songs for the day. They even went to the effort of learning a song I wanted for the aisle, the night before hand (yes I changed my mind last minute)! The guests enjoyed the music so much that the venue even commented that "usually people don't start dancing this early"! Everyone had a fantastic time!

We hired Craig Francis Music for our wedding day and we are so glad that we did. They were exceptional. We had a duo for our ceremony, which created a soft and heartfelt mood for the occasion. Erin’s voice was absolutely beautiful and really amplified all of our emotions. We had a 6 piece band at the reception and from the moment the band started playing, they really brought the party to life! So much energy and so many compliments from our guests. Everyone had such a great time because of the live music. Craig did a great job as MC and his energy carried across the room. They were also able to play some traditional music as we had requested. There really is nothing better than a live band and these guys were fantastic!

Craig Francis Music  

Thanks so much for your kind words :) Erin, I and the band loved performing and MCing for you and it was a genuine pleasure to be a part of your very special day!

From the very beginning Craig's service level and enthusiasm made him stand out from other vendors. He was incredibly accommodating and organised throughout the planning process. Wade was our DJ for the night and did a great job in keeping our atmosphere fun and lively. All of our family and friends had a great time, dancing up until the very end. Thank you Craig and Wade for making our night amazing!!

We had the 4 piece bad at our wedding with Bernie as the lead singer. They could not have been more amazing! They created such a fun and upbeat atmosphere and our guests could not stop dancing all night! They were very flexible, they learnt some special song requests for us and they even let our family members sing some songs with them into the microphone. Bernie in particular was a really fun singer and just looked like she was having the best time up there, her energy was contagious!

The Craig Francis Band were absolutely fantastic. They created a great atmosphere on the night & had everybody up dancing. Craig is a natural entertainer, great communicator & was super easy to deal with. Whilst his whole ensemble were incredibly professional & talented, we were blessed enough to have Jessica as the lead vocalist & I have to say, she is such an incredible performer. We received so many compliments about them on the night and after the wedding. Highly recommend for any occasion.
