Questions and Answers

I’m not sure about booking a band, what do I have to do?

Something Like This

Relax! Our aim is to make booking us as easy as possible, to give you a completely professional show at a competitive price that is great value for money. We provide everything - Ourselves, our instruments, microphones, all the speakers and PA, the lighting, and as much live music as you want. Our philosophy is to take the entire weight of the entertainment side of your event completely off your shoulders.

How much do you cost?

Something Like This

We don’t price should be an issue when booking the right band for your wedding, but understand that you need to keep an eye on the bottom line. That’s why we have several packages available to suit all styles of events and all budgets. All you need to do is chat to us and we can recommend a package, while taking all your needs into consideration.

Can you guys play (insert song)?

Something Like This

Probably! We are an experienced, professional band which has an extensive songlist. You’re welcome to send through any song requests and if we don’t already know them, we’ll be happy to learn them for you if it’s for a special request (for a bridal dance etc.).  

How do you quote and do you factor in travel?

Something Like This

We have a single fee depending on the package you’re after. For a reception for example, we can play as much or as little as you’d like, with 100% flexibility. The reason for that is that things often don’t go as exactly as the run sheet says – so, we’re there long before your reception starts, and are there until after you’ve left, and for that entire time consider us yours! No hidden fees or extra charges, no GST. It couldn’t be simpler. For weddings out of the CBD, we charge $50 per musican per hour of travel.

Do you take a deposit and how do we pay you?

Something Like This

Ideally for a wedding, after taking a deposit via transfer, we can accept your balance via transfer, credit card, paypal, cash and we can also do payment plans – whatever is easiest for you.

What kind of music do you play?

Something Like This

We are a professional and specialized wedding and function band. This means we are constantly playing to audiences containing everyone from ages 18 through to 80! We recognize the importance of having something for everyone, and play all the hits and classics – from 1950’s to present. Our wedding setlist has been tailored and refined over hundreds of events, and our philosophy to have something for everyone – so guests of all ages can enjoy the music and hear songs that they know and love. In saying that, our setlist is fully customizable based on your preferences, and if there’s any specific artists you’d like to hear for your wedding all you have to do is let us know.

How much space do you take up?

Something Like This

We are quite flexible with this – Ideally for the full band we require a 5x3 meter space. You may also want to consider having us located away from any tables to ensure guests are not located too close to our speakers.

Are you available for consulting before my wedding/function?

Something Like This

I want the original song played for my bridal dance, is this ok?

Something Like This

Absolutely. Many couples choose to have the original played for the dance so they can practice their dance to it at home, and be comfortable with the tempo etc. We can play it via Ipod through our system.

Me/My uncle/My daughter is a great Singer/guitarist/drummer, can we play a song or two with you on the night?

This is up to you. We consider ourselves there to perform for you - our single priority is giving you a 100% professional performance at the best possible value. If you’d like to provide us with a meal and drinks, it would be greatly appreciated. Meals for most venues will be provided to the band at staff prices. We are more than happy to leave this to your discretion and it won’t be a deal breaker either way! If your wedding is 2.5 hours or more travel for us, we require basic accommodation.
