Mind-blown! Such an awesome professional. A complete experience and business example to follow. If you are planning a wedding or function, do yourself a favor - start with Nick and plan everything else around him. Nick will actually help you plan your special event. The music is unbelievable, and he can learn new songs by request and deliver it in many ways better than the original artist. It doesn't even stop there, he can seamlessly go from Singer to DJ and MC. The happiest new couple from Sydney - Ric and Leti

Thank you so much Ricardo, this means so much to me. I know how much music means to both you and Leti and it was an honour to play a small part of your big day! I wish you all the very best for the future! :)

Our day wouldn’t of been what it was without you. You are passionate and genuine with your love for music and it really shows when you are playing and djing. We would 110% Nick!

Nick is amazing! He was our MC/DJ along with having his acoustic package for our ceremony, canapé hour and reception. From the moment I booked Nick, I couldn’t have been happier. Nick went the extra mile to help me in other areas where I needed the help, even recording a song for me to listen to for our walking down the aisle song - which we chose & was absolutely beautifully performed. All our guests commented on how great Nick was. I could not recommend Nick enough. If your looking for someone who is able to cater to al of your needs at a reasonable price-you will not regret booking Nick!

Thank you so much Melissa! It was great to visit Tamworth for the first time and be able to perform and DJ your special day in the beautiful Vineyards in December. I will never forget this experience!

From first talking with Nick to having him as our MC/DJ for our wedding- he was incredibly friendly, helpful and had a great sense of humour. He made our reception full of great vibes and good times! He is an absolute legend and pumped everyone up ready for a great celebration and night on the dancefloor. We also had the privilege of hearing him perform- he has such a great voice and is extremely talented. Thank you Nick for creating an awesome atmosphere, we will be recommending you to everyone.

We had Nick for our reception for the music and MC and he was great. He worked with us closely to find out exactly what we were after and the evening was perfect.

Nick was our MC/DJ/live entertainment for our wedding and we could not recommend him highly enough. The quality of his music, banter over the mic, and general presence is second to none. His ability and willingness to learn and play a particularly complex acoustic song for the brides walk down the aisle really made a special mark on our day that will stick in our minds for the rest of our lives. Thank you again for playing your role in our big day so perfectly, and good luck for yours... 11/10.

Nick Read

From the moment we made contact with Nick we trusted him and felt like we were friends. He has and was professional, reliable, talented and just generally a nice guy. Nick was our MC/entertainer/DJ and host. All our guests were raving about him and asking where we found him and said how much of a lovely guy he was and of course he good he was. Thanks so much Nick! We will definitely keep in touch and come see a gig!! Good luck with everything in the future ❤️

Nick Read  

Thank you so much Sarah! It was an absolute pleasure to be there! I'm so glad you could go ahead and we could get dancing in for your friends and family! All the best!

Highly recommend Nick, he went above and beyond our expectations. We booked Nick for both acoustic and DJ to perform at our wedding, every one of our 30 guests commented on how fabulous he was. We received amazing service, Nick was friendly, professional and an absolute pleasure.

Hey Liz! Thank you so much for taking the time to write me a review! It was an absolute pleasure to be there and perform for your special day! I wish you all the best for the future!

When you want someone who is not only a brilliant wedding singer, but also a master of his craft, you go to Nick! In a nutshell, he has an extensive repetoire of songs he knows, over 100+ however happily learnt three songs we requested for the ceremony, along with discussing the type of sound we wanted for each (his style or the original versions). He edited and amended a last minute audio issue we had for our first dance, and was generous with his time and effort when we were constantly asking questions. Our family and friends were so impressed they asked for his Spotify! All-around professional, excellent value and a genuine delight to share our day with. Will certainly be reccomending him for other couples and hopefully for some of our own future events. Thankyou Nick for being the perfect soundtrack to our wedding day.

Thank you so much Emma & Dylan. It was an absolute pleasure to play a part of your special day! :)

After attending a wedding where Nick performed, we knew he had to sing at our wedding. We hired him to sing live at our ceremony, MC our reception and DJ at the party. Nick is warm, professional, flexible and extremely talented. We are his biggest fans!

Nick Read  

Thank you so much Jessica! I had such a great time with you guys on your special day! I wish you and Aaron all the best! :)

Nick performed at our wedding on the weekend & he is one truly talented human. Nick went above & beyond to make sure we & our guests had a good time (& that we did). He was also just a really lovely person to deal with. Do yourself a favour & book Nick for your next event. You won't be disappointed

Nick Read  

Thank you so much Michelle! It was an absolute pleasure to be there. I'm so glad we could go ahead and celebrate your special day! All the best!

Nick was amazing for our wedding. We booked Nick for both live music for the ceremony and then he DJ’d later in the night. Highly recommend, you won’t be disappointed. Follow his Facebook page and if you want to hear him sing before booking, he does gigs at pubs around central coast/Lake Macquarie area.
