If you’re on the hunt for a highly capable, charming musician or duo to play live music at your wedding, then your search is over. RJ Unplugged combines the talents of guitarist and singer RJ Bentley and his sister Jessica, who perform covers of much-loved songs at weddings across Queensland.

RJ Unplugged offers flexible wedding packages, which can be tailored to your liking. Whether you’re after live songs before, during and after the ceremony, or want music from your ceremony right through to the end of the night, a custom wedding package can be created to suit your needs. You need only chat to the lovely performers behind this highly successful business for a quote.

“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 the 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’ll love about working with RJ Unplugged for your wedding:

  • Solo or duo (& DJ). The choice is yours! RJ Unplugged can perform as a charismatic solo or duo ensemble. 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 commands the room. If you love live music but you would rather finish the night with your favourite Dance tracks, RJ Unplugged offers a DJ option sure to get the dance floor pumping!
  • 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. 
  • Sunshine Coast to Byron Bay. 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.

 

“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

"So many of our wedding guests commented on how great his music was and how easy he was to listen to.

If you’re looking for an amazing musician to keep you and your guests entertained you need to book RJ!" – Jessica

About

I have been having fun playing music with my sister & duo partner (Jess) for over 20 years. I am passionate about live music & its ability to create positive vibes & bring people together. When an artist can combine quality vocals with an energetic, warm & rhythmic sound, the mood & atmosphere at a wedding is elevated. As a wedding musician, I believe It is imperative to have enough of a presence to get your guests attention, without overpowering & impeding their ability to interact & mingle.

Mr Richard Bentley

Owner since 2006

RJ and Jess made our wedding! They listened to everything we wanted and gave us even more than we expected. They played songs for us that connected us to everyone in the room and to each other. They even learned a song especially for us that just blew the roof right off the night.

My partner and I went to a wedding expo and heard RJ singing. We knew then and there that he had to be at our wedding! From that day, he had been so easy to talk to. Every email or message I sent, I got a response with in a few hrs. The duo package is AMAZING! I absolutely loved having the Duo for the wedding. Their voices individually and as the duo are just euphonious! I highly recommend getting the duo for any event but for a wedding is a must have. I can’t thank them enough for how amazing they made our night. All my guests and staff at the venue couldn’t stop talking about how amazing the music was.

RJ was absolutely amazing! From the get go he was so easy to talk to and explained how everything would work which actually me feel so much calmer about the whole day! He and his sister played duo act from ceremony until the end of reception and sounded incredible! So many comments from our guests on how good they were. They even learnt our first dance song which was so special on the night. Would use them again in a heartbeat!

RJ came highly recommended by our wedding planner and celebrant. We purchased the platinum package and were really impressed by the job they did. RJ & Jess were a pleasure to deal with. We were given a long list of songs to choose from including a lot of wedding hits & modern songs. We were thrilled to be able to have our three personally chosen songs learnt & sung in their beautiful acoustic sound. RJ was our MC on the night & helped things run smoothly. Our guests commented on what a great job our band did for us. The 10 minute video we were provided was edited beautifully. The footage was taken discreetly throughout the day & perfectly captured our wedding day highlights. We'd highly recommend RJ Unplugged! Thank you so much for being part of our special day.

Richard is amazing! If you love acoustic songs, I highly recommend him! He has so many songs you can choose from, and he even learned a new song at our request. He knows what it takes to make the wedding not just successful but a wonderful day. He is perfect with timing, experienced with events and completely understood the tasks. He is so professional and down to earth, very easy to communicate with and supportive throughout the whole planning phase. Everybody loved him on our wedding day.
