What you’ll love about working with Something Borrowed for your wedding:

We have our formula and we feel it creates the best, most memorable wedding entertainment experience there is. From first email until your farewell circle. Yes, each duo has their own idiosyncrasies but you can rest assured whatever duo you go for, the service and entertainment will be of the highest standard.
  • We have won Australian Bridal Industry Awards for best reception music and best ceremony music for the last 4 years running,  as voted by brides. 
  • We have been in the wedding game for over 10 years, we absolutely love what we do... and it shows. This is why we strive so hard to make your day perfect!

Questions and Answers

What happens in between sets?

Something Borrowed

You can absolutely trust that there will never be awkward silences between stes. If we are not playing live, we run a series of playlists through our PA that always suit the moment. 

Can we put our own playlists together to be played on your breaks?

Something Borrowed

Sure can. Just put together a Spotify playlist and share the link with us. We'll have the playlist uploaded and ready to go! 

I don't really want my friends or family to worry about the whole Master of Ceremonies thing. Do you MC?

Something Borrowed

Absolutely. This is a service we provide free of charge. In fact, Adam MC's around 90% of the weddings we perform at.

How long are your set breaks?

Something Borrowed

It all depends on the events of the evening and the run sheet, but generally around 15 - 20 minutes.

Do you have a wireless mic for speeches?

Something Borrowed

Yes we do. This is something that every wedding entertainment company should provide for you.

Brendan and Adam are the bomb! As muso's and MC's they were exactly what we were looking for! There flexibility, fun approach and genuine nature made them a hit with everyone. Our family are still talking about how great they were and we loved every minute, from the acoustic rendition as i walked down the aisle to the community sign along over dinner and the dance party later! Thanks for being awesome guys!

Something Borrowed  

Well thank you so much Mrs Blick!! We honestly left your wedding with such a great feeling. Your friends and family were just all so great. They loved their music and loved a good time, which makes our job easy. Thanks again for having us and thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. All the best for the future!

13 Jan 2018

Something Borrowed were amazing! Just what we wanted for our wedding - a laidback and friendly pair who know such an extensive songlist and could perfectly get the balance between lovely chilled acoustic versions of some our fave songs for during dinner but could easily step it up a gear into incredible party music for dancing! Thank you guys - all our guests raved about you! Callum & Neil

Something Borrowed  

Thank you so much guys. What an incredible wedding yours was. Thank you for letting us be a part of it. We wish you all the very best for the future....maybe we can play at your 10 year anniversary! lol!

Brendan & Adam, I've been dying to find a minute to thank you both for your fantastic work at our wedding on Saturday. You guys were truly a pleasure to work with through the whole process and most importantly your music was a hit with our family and friends right from the very start. Your acoustic work at the ceremony was superb (we got many comments on how wonderful you sounded) and the atmosphere you provided through all aspects of the night was perfect. Not only did you have a great song list of your own, you read the cues to keep the dance floor full all night. You were even more than willing to accept requests (from both cultures) making the experience enjoyable for all! Finally, I cannot sing your praise highly enough for how adaptable you were regarding the timeline and set times. Like most weddings, I'm sure, we ran extremely late and struggled to fit in the planned sets so you happily accommodated and once the dance floor was open, played for at least an hour and a half straight (without a break or food) to help us keep the party going! That was completely beyond our expectations and we cannot thank you enough. As we've been catching up with our family and friends in the aftermath of the wedding, almost every one of them have commented on how great the band was and most of them even noticing how you played without a break, making the back end of the night a wonderful talking point! So one last time, we'd love to thank you both soooooo very much and let you know how much we appreciate the work you put in. You will be highly, highly recommended to everyone we speak to! Love, Tania & Terence Upoko 😊 xox

Something Borrowed  

Thanks you so much guys!! We had a great time. All your friends and family were fantastic and we absolutely loved the island dancing. It was awesome to watch. Honestly, it was our pleasure to keep playing right through and as you said, 85% of weddings do not run exactly to time so I'm just glad we could make up the dancing time for you guys.

Wow! I cannot thank Les and his team enough. He made our wedding so incredibly fun and did an awesome job as MC, especially because he didn’t know us personally but it felt like he did the whole night. There was never an empty spot on the dance floor and Les knew how to work the room. From 2 year olds through to 70 year olds, everyone was up and dancing! I cannot thank him enough. His professionalism was amazing and his voice is unreal! Highly recommend! See you when we have to renew our vowels, Les!

Adam and Brendan are absolutely brilliant. I came in to the venue as the groom full of nerves and they helped put me at ease right away. They played perfectly at the ceremony and reception and my wife and I were really thankful to both Adam and Brendan for setting the atmosphere throughout the day. We ended up picking a few songs for the ceremony, a first dance and then our guests requested some songs in their RSVPs. The rest of the songs we just told the guys to go for your life - and they set a magical vibe. We received multiple comments from our guests regarding how much they enjoyed the music. Adam also MC'd for us and he did so not only with the ease of someone who knows what they're doing, but with the right balance of humour and heart. We cannot recommend them enough!

My wife and I had the absolute pleasure of having Les and Rob from 'Something Borrowed Too' perform at our wedding. They were amazing. Just simply amazing. The vibe all night was flawless. Even had my Nan up busting moves for the first time in 25 years. Cannot recommend Les and Rob enough, thanks guys for making our night all the more incredible.

Thank you so much for your amazing work at our Wedding, it was perfect and we are so thankful for your great energy! Could not have asked for anything better!!

12 Nov 2021

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding. We were so happy with the music and that so many people joined us on the dance floor, and we had such a great time. Your MC service also made it hassle-free for us which was nice to have one less thing to plan. Thank you for helping make our big day even more special!

We had Vlad and Eliza from Something Different Duo and they were fantastic!!! They were very talented and did amazing covers of our requested songs and kept the dance floor alive all night. We didn’t have to worry about anything and they just adapted to whatever changed through the night and worked great with our MC. Adam and Brendan were very easy to deal with on the admin side of things, really helpful with planning the set times and organizing song requests and demos. We’ve seen them perform at mates weddings as well and they’re awesome! Would 100% recommend and book again!!

We booked Something Borrowed Too for our fourth wedding attempt. Everything was organised so smoothly and Les and Rowan were amazing on the night! They played a great range of music that got everyone up and dancing which really helped us celebrate such a long awaited party. Highly recommend them for weddings and receptions.

23 May 2021

The best band you could ever want! We were one of many Covid couples. Our wedding was nearly 3 years in the making and Adam and Brendan were with us every step of the way. When we changed our wedding from a venue to at home the guys were nothing but accommodating. When the day finally arrived I think pretty much every guest commented on how amazing the guys were. My husband and I can’t thank Something Borrowed Duo enough for making our day so special. We can’t wait to have them sing at our next event.

15 May 2021

We had Les and Darren at our wedding in May 2021, they were absolutely amazing, I couldn't fault them. They were extremely professional and was by far the best decision to have them at our wedding. They performed during our ceremony, canapés and reception and was our MC for the night, we received great feedback from all our guests about how amazing they played. They made everything run so smoothly and played every acoustic song to perfection. They create such an amazing fun vibe that everyone gets ups to dance on the dance floor.

8 May 2021

What a pleasure it was dealing with Les and Rowan from Something Borrowed, they were truly wonderful to deal with even during two covid related postponements, nothing was too much trouble and they were professional and accommodating all the way along. Les made an awesome MC for the evening and the photo booth was a hit with guests young and old but onto the important part the music was spectacular, the acoustics played during our ceremony we will remember forever, Les's vocals set the tone for the whole day and once the reception moved into party mode they moved effortlessly into all the classics to get the crowd up and dancing. Without a doubt the biggest endorsement i can give these guys is that my lovely bride is already wanting to plan another event just so we can have Les and Rowan back to provide the entertainment.

7 May 2021

Something Borrowed were absolutely fantastic, with their ceremony music the absolute highlight of our day. Adam and Brendan did a great job as MC's for the night as well, engaging everybody, keeping things light and fun but keeping everything on time and on track. They were great in picking the right songs to get everyone up on the dancefloor as well. Highly recommend these guys, they are fantastic.

1 May 2021

We chose our wedding date around the availability of Something Borrowed Duo. It was a double wedding, and we were not sure what we wanted or how it was going to work out. The only thing we knew if that we wanted them, and they did not disappoint, making our day even more special than we could have dreamed. These guys are dedicated professionals, and they know weddings. We had a perfect wedding, without any stress. Our guests were blown away by how great the music was, and friends and family are still talking about how fabulous they were. My friends are now trying to come up with a reason to have another celebration just to get them back playing music so that we can have another fantastic party!!
