The Night Creatures helped make our wedding day truly amazing! Extremely good vibes and extremely good times were had by all. They learnt the song for our first dance, which made it unforgettable. The dance floor was packed as soon as we opened it up to the crowd, and stayed that way all night!!” — Shaun H, October 2019


I'm a full-time performer and artist in Melbourne... and I honestly have the best job ever. This band was started by our former disco queen Phoebe who moved on to do other amazing projects, leaving me at the helm of a spectacular musical crew. Somehow the band has the holy trinity of traits for any bands - everyone is exceptionally talented, we love hanging out together and we love playing music. Nothing makes us happier than sharing what we do and seeing smiling faces on the dance floor.

Even though unfortunately Phoebe was unable to sing with band on the night, Shannen was able to step in and do such an amazing job with the band. All our guests raved about how much they loved the band, even our photo booth operator was dancing! It was so special to us that they learnt the song “Grow Old With You” from The Wedding Singer . I tear up when I think about what it was like to hear the band perform it while we had our first dance as husband and wife. It was also lovely that the the band members took the time to check in with us throughout the night. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting an amazing musical experience at their wedding!

Unlike most brides I didn't care about getting everything perfect because I knew that if I just got the music and drinks right everything else would fall into place and that's exactly what happened. I've been dancing to Phoebe's music for years so it was a real honour to finally have Phoebe and the Night Creatures all to ourselves! These guys just love doing what they do - a labour of love you might say - and they really bring their all. The arrangement of our first dance track was beyond beautiful. I couldn't get my guest off the dance floor at the end of the night (partly because the band didn't want to leave either). Love you guys!! You sprinkled our night with your disco magic and we're eternally grateful 🥰

The Giant and his Bride. Oh man, what an utterly magical, autumn evening that was! From the ceremony to the encores and everything in between, we were just so insanely happy to be a part of it all. Especially after already knowing your gorgeous faces from gracing the d-floor at our gigs! Big love to you both <3 <3 <3

August 2018

Phoebe and the Night Creatures were the perfect pick for us to have at our wedding. We gave Phoebe nothing to go by other than "do your stuff, read the guests and have fun" and she nailed it! Phoebe was so great to deal with in the lead up to our wedding as well. I literally didn't have to worry about a thing with Phoebe in charge of the music! Could not recommend more highly - I'm so glad we went with an amazing vocalist and the 5 person band. Nothing beats amazing live music and there was no cheesy jukebox tired "wedding hits" at our wedding. We got so much great feedback from our guests about the band too which was nice!

The Night Creatures

Thank you SO much, you gorgeous human, you!!! I will never forget the sight of your grandpa getting down to our tunes along with a bunch of your cousins (I think?) - so so beautiful. And Justin! Every wedding needs a Justin, huh?! Hopefully see you again soon!! xxx

September 2022

So many guests came to us after the wedding commenting on how good the band was. Exceptional musicians and artist that will guarantee you an amazing night! Shannen was our vocal lead and she was spectacular. We had lots of kids at the wedding and it was a tough crowd to control and they did an amazing job. They learnt your song and were super flexible with how the sets were organised. Totally recommended!!

The Night Creatures were absolutely perfect for our wedding! They were amazing musicians and set the mood beautifully, making our ceremony special and then getting everyone dancing in the reception. So many of our friends and family came up to us afterwards and commented on how awesome the band was. Diego was very professional and worked hard to make sure everything was perfect. I would not hesitate to recommend them, hopefully I'll get to hear them again at a friends wedding or party :)

What are some great first dance songs?

Would love some suggestions on first dance songs specifically. Something that will be great filmed for our wedding video. Thank you!

The Night Creatures

Always  very personal choice but here are a few we loved performing:

To build a home - Cinematic Orchestra

Saviing all my love for you - Whitney Houston

So into you - Tamia

She moved through the fair - Irish traditional


Can i ask for a dj or band's music sample before i book them?

The Night Creatures

Absolutely!!!!! You should also ask if you can go and see them play live too. Nothing like seeing them entertaining crowds, in the flesh! :)

Which goes first, the first dance or Father/Daughter dance? Thanks!

The Night Creatures

It's completely up to you, however for all the weddings we've done, the first dance usually comes first. Father daughter dance works really well as the first song in the next set. I wouldn't put it after the first dance - usually guests love to come and dance after the first dance, so if you do a second dance whereby the guests can't join in, it might lose momentum a bit... but it's completely up to you guys! :)
