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!

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!

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

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

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

Adam and Brendan were nothing short of amazing. From the start of arrangements to the big day they were attentive, responsive, professional and super friendly to deal with. My sister and I had a double wedding so you would think it would be double the stress, however we planned pour special day around these guys and can honestly say it was the best celebration and day of our lives. Our guests are still raving about it.

The loveliest, charismatic and absolutely hilarious guys. Kept everyone laughing, engaged and supported us (bride & groom) through the whole night. Both of the guys are so uplifting, providing the best dance music to suit all ages.

Adam & Brendan are AMAZING. From the initial contact we knew we had made the right decision. Apart from their amazing voices they are professional, accomodating, funny, and down to earth. I highly highly recommend this awesome duo

Thank you so much Adam and Brendan for providing the beautiful music and great MC skills for our wedding. The music all night was absolutely perfect. We loved the acoustic versions of the special songs we had chosen for our ceremony and reception. The dance floor hits that got every single guest up and onto the dance floor were one of my favourite parts of the night. We had positive comments from our guests about the beautiful music all night. You are both truly so talented. Adam and Brendan also acted as our MC for the reception and they were absolutely fabulous. The guys were the perfect mix of fun, energetic, polite and in control of the night. The entire reception ran so smoothly. Adam and Brendan are both knowledgeable, talented, extremely professional and very responsive to emails. They were the perfect choice for our band and MC.

Something borrowed were absolutely incredible. The acoustic set they did when guests were arriving was fantastic. They then played one of my favourite songs as I walked down the isle and the nailed it. It made the moment so special. They also play music that literally got everyone at the wedding on the dance floor. My family is Irish and they included some Irish music. This meant so much to my family. I had lots of guests ask me where I found Adam and Banga. They made our day so special. Couldn’t recommend them enough. Absolutely incredible.

Brendan and Adam set the scene for the exact wedding we had envisioned and we couldn’t have been happier. From the first time we heard them play at a bridal expo , we knew we had to have these guys play at our wedding. They were so easy to deal with and made all the planning feel so easy and they met all our demands and requests with no hesitation. On the day they also Did the MC work and were so great, we always wanted a fun and energetic wedding and they did exactly that . The music speaks for its self and both compliment each other so well and we had many guests asking who they were and that they were the best they had heard at a wedding before . Thankyou for helping make our day as special as it was .

There is a reason these guys have been awarded wedding band of the year. Adam and Brendan are the best in the business! Adam is such a funny guy, making him a fabulous MC too. We loved that they could switch from acoustic at the ceremony and during dinner to a higher party tempo later to get people on the dance floor!

Something Borrowed were absolutely amazing at our wedding! With very limited guidance they slotted straight into our special day playing at our ceremony & reception. They had all of our guests up and dancing. We had so many people commenting on how great the music was. We couldn’t fault them and would recommend them to everyone!

Les and Rowan from Something Borrowed Too were incredible! These guys were a fantastic choice for our wedding - we had them perform during our ceremony, canapes right through to the reception and it was completely seamless! The guys were so easy to deal with, they were organised and absolutely on top of everything. They sound great, know so many songs and were super friendly. All of our guests commented on how great they were! Highly recommend!

The something borrowed duo were massive crowd pleasers at our wedding. So many of our guests commented on how great they were and how accomodating they were for everyone, even our 3 year old cousin who wanted them to play the wiggles! Such easy going guys and would highly recommend them to anyone who asked!

13.03.2021- The Sanderson’s!! Adam and Brendon go above and beyond to make your Wedding day just perfect. They have excellent communication leading up to your big day, and are so flexible to make sure you are happy with everything. From the acoustic songs at our ceremony, to the party at our reception these guys know how to please a crowd! They even MC’d for us and nailed it. Their energy while entertaining is the best, our guests are all still talking about how great they were! Thanks so much guys- Carlie & Tom

Well, what can I say, Something Borrowed is AMAZING. The music throughout the night was exactly what we were after. Adam and Brendan were such an important part of our night and they were outstanding. They were both so easy to deal with. They were always happy to answer our questions and play music in which we suggested. Adam and Brendan also impressed us with their rendition of 'Summer of 69' where they mixed it up to allow it to be used as a slow, then upbeat song for the Father Daughter dance. Still to this day our guests talk about the music that was played and we both still talk about how much fun we had dancing. We can't thank them enough for making our day feel so special. Would highly recommend these two lovely gentlemen to ANYONE!

The Boys were awesome!!! They played the most amazing song as I walked down the aisle in the rain, fabulous, organized, communication was first class prior to the big day. We can't recommend Adam and Brendan highly enough....they were the ultimate professionals! They complemented our day by ensuring everyone had fun, danced the afternoon away and the comments since have been first class. Thanks Guys, Loved your work and that 10 year anniversary wedding date is going to be one hell of a party having you guys there belting out those tunes....... Megan & Steve

Adam and Brendan are absolute champions! We met Adam and Brendan at our venue open day and locking them in for our wedding day was one of first and easiest decisions we made. From the moment we met, we loved their positive energy and great sense of humour, even during the struggles of COVID-19. They were so professional, accommodating and down to earth through the whole process. They were excellent at communicating the whole way through and nothing ever seemed too much trouble after countless phone calls and emails. We were well supported and guided by their years of experience in the wedding industry, which made it so effortless. Our guests were amazed by their talent and their ability to play right through the whole day and night, they were excellent.

Absolutely incredible! Adam and Brendan are the most down to earth, talented and professional people you will ever meet. From the moment we enquired we felt supported and were guided by their years of experience in the wedding industry, which naturally took the stress out of our day. They had such great communication and answered any questions that we had and nothing was too much trouble! On our wedding day they created such an amazing vibe playing the songs we had requested for both our ceremony and reception and interacting with our guests. Adam also MC’d in between sets for us which our guests loved so much and the whole day flowed effortlessly! Do yourself a favour and book Something Borrowed! They are AMAZING!

Adam and Brendan were just fantastic! We had them chosen before we were even engaged. We heard them at a friend's wedding and loved their sound. They played our ceremony and reception. They even learnt the songs we requested for our special moments. Can not thank them enough! They made our special day that much more special.

After a few postponements, we finally celebrated our wedding 2 years later. Les (who also mc-ed) and the team were absolutely incredible and had all our guests raving about them. We cannot thank and recommend them highly enough! I would give more than 5 stars if I could.

We could not recommend SBD highly enough. We booked them after seeing them play at our friends wedding. They were prompt with their communication and had some suggestions that made the ceremony run smoothly. Adam and Brendan are extremely talented and rocked our wedding with high energy and extremely fun sets that saw our dance floor packed before dinner was even served! They played all requests with flawless precision. We could’ve kept dancing for hours!

Danielle C.

14 Mar 2020

The Photo Booth and props that SBD provided was an extremely fun and unique addition to our wedding reception. We just love looking back at all the candid photos and reading all the messages that our guests left throughout the evening. Adam and Brendan setup the photo booth and made sure it was all working before our guests arrived and packed it all up at the conclusion of the evening. Fantastic service provided by the boys!

We had our wedding on 8th March 2020. Adam and Brendan was so easy to work with, answered many questions without hassle and was very responsive throughout the planning process throughout the year prior to the wedding. Both are so professional and friendly. They are extremely good at what they do. We had many positive comments from Guests telling us how good the music was. On the big day, you can tell how much they love what they do, and that really changes the atmosphere for the guests. Not only is the music good, Adam was fantastic with his MC services. We only need to have a small de-brief chat prior to the wedding and he did the rest with flying colours to keep guests entertained as well as keeping up with our tight luncheon timeline. We are so glad we chose Something Borrowed, it will become a proud topic.

Hey thanks guys. We had such a great day. Your wedding games were too much fun. Happy Lifetime of Love for you both.

We had Something Borrowed for our Ceremony and Reception as well as MC duties. And what can we say...... Wow! These guys are incredible! We highly recommend them to everyone. They absolutely made the day amazing and everyone kept saying to us how great they were!

Thanks Mr & Mrs Pritchard. We always, always, always love a wedding by the water....... and a 57 chev. Happy together forever guys.

Something Borrowed were so easy to work with, responsive and very professional. They were able to deliver exactly what we wanted during the ceremony. Something Borrowed also played excellent music at our reception which had guests singing along (even whilst eating mains), and up on the dance floor. Our guests commented on how good Something Borrowed were and wanted to book them for their own events. We always knew we wanted to hire a band rather than a DJ, but we couldn’t afford a full ensemble. Something Borrowed have a ‘Big Band’ sound without the price tag. We also loved that Something Borrowed supplied the photo booth! Our friends and family had a lot of fun with it. We also were surprised that they contributed the photo album guest book and that they sent the digital copies the following week. Our only regret was not being in more of

Thanks James and Nat..... Oh what a night and Wow.... what a review. Might have to put you on the payroll. Loved to see you and the crew hitting the d-floor all night long.

Adam and Brendan were amazing! They were both lovely and made the planning process so easy. They were happy to learn new songs for us and take requests on the night. Many of our guests have commented on how great they were

Cheers yo wonderful two. Such a beautiful wedding with some of the best panoramic views you'll ever see. Thanks for introducing us to Andy Grammar's, I am Yours. It's now a regular song on our playlist.

WOW!! Where to begin...these guys nailed it. Mitch and I are so grateful we were able to witness Brendan and Adam play at another wedding we attended, it was a no brainer to book them. They have the whole package, ceremony coverage, amazing acoustic and vocals throughout our dinner and then the big guns for the reception. DJ, Lights, big vocals and lots of fun!!! We particularly loved how they included bits of our personalities in their songs. They even throw in the photo booth when you go the full package. Honestly such a great bonus. (comes with an album) Thank you so much guys for being brilliant on the lead up to the wedding day, even with keeping some things secret from the groom ;) Mitch and I wouldn't have changed a thing, thanks for travelling three hours to play for us and our guests. YOU SMASHED IT!

Something Borrowed  

Awww, Thanks Mr & Mrs Young. We had a fantastic time playing at your wedding. We really enjoyed the bridesmaids' dance to Dear Future Husband. Thank you for the log cabin accommodation at the end of the night too. Such a beautiful setting for a wonderful day.

Adam and Brendan played at our wedding recently and did the most amazing job! They created the perfect atmosphere during our ceremony and then got the party started at the reception. Everyone was up dancing the whole night and raved about the band the whole night. We also got our photobooth through them and it was a huge hit! I will definitely be getting in touch with the boys for our next function!

Something Borrowed  

Thanks Sherdian & Adrian. We had a great night at your wedding. It's not often we get to play such a beautiful version of Sweet Child o Mine.

BEST WEDDING BAND EVER! Best blokes ever! Our ceremony was made 100x more special with the help of these 2 legends and their flexibility! Beautiful people, beautiful vocals and just so warming to have them sing before and during our ceremony! Not a dry eye in the house. &&& do these boys know how to get a party and a dance floor started early! It was filled with smiles, laughter and our terrible dance moves from start to end! They were more than we ever could have hoped for and our guests just loved them and the vibe they created! We couldn’t be more grateful for Adam & Brendan, their talent & their effortless, fun & genuine attitude towards our day.... & what an MC!! Effortless, fun & happy to go with the flow! Compliments and big thank you’s all round from us. You made our dream day a reality.

Something Borrowed  

Ahhhh Sammy. You're making us blush...haha. Thank you so much for this review and thank you so much for letting us be involved in your day. Such a great bunch of people and always incredible when different cultural song and dance is a part of it. Absolutely loved it. Good luck for the future... hope to see you guys again. A & B

Adam and Brendan are absolute professionals who know how to put on an incredible event which will guarantee you and your guests are having a great time. Organising a wedding is stressful. By booking Something Borrowed to play at our Ceremony, play live music and perform MC duties we felt a lot of weight was lifted off our shoulders. My wife and I loved how they sent us our aisle and first dance songs in advance so we knew exactly how good they would sound on the day. If you're planning a wedding, the first people you contact to do the music should be Something Borrowed. If they are available, BOOK THEM so you can spend the months leading into your wedding relaxed, knowing you've got the best in the business for your special day. Thanks a million to Something Borrowed for your role in our big day

Something Borrowed  

Nic and Lana... what a great wedding.. from start to finish. No storm could stop that party...haha. Thank you so much for the review and for letting us be a part of your day. It's so nice to hear you felt so relaxed with choosing us. That really is what we aim for. Thanks again guys

These guys have been in the business for a long time and when it comes to weddings....they get it. The whole process with SB Duo was so easy! We felt so comfortable after our first meeting with Adam and everything just flowed from there. Our dance floor was packed which is just how we imagined our wedding day! Highly recommend these guys, they are amazing.

Something Borrowed are all-round amazing - combining talent with down-to-earth personalities that make them a pleasure to work with. From creating a chilled-out garden party vibe, to smashing out dancing tunes and seamlessly MC-ing our special day - they nailed it:) If you want to be in safe hands, we couldn't recommend them more highly:) Thank you Brendan, Les and Adam for making our day:) Brenton and Meg x

I honestly couldn’t recommend something borrowed enough, from the moment I contacted these guys they have been to lovely to deal with, so accommodating & helpful, and any request I had, they ensured it was done. They were absolutely phenomenal on the day, they read our crown so well, and played the best music. On top of that they are both absolute legends, and all of our guests commented on how great of singers & people they were - if your getting married, these two are your guys!

The best in the business offering great music, photo booth, and MC services. Adam and Brendan have so much personality that really made our wedding such a special one. Thanks guys!!

A great add on to our entertainment with an easy setup, book to put the photos into and digital files emailed after the event!!

Glad you enjoyed it Bel. There are some funny photos in there of you and the crew. What a party!!!

Having Adam and Brendan from Something Borrowed play at our wedding was the first and best decision we made in organising our big day. People could not stop commenting all night on how amazing they were. With minimal information to go on about what we liked, they played a perfect selection of music to suit the whole crowd. They also specifically learned and beautifully performed our special songs for the ceremony. Upon request, they assisted with MC duties for the evening, adding humour and warmth along the way. Gracious and unassuming, Adam and Brendan easily mingled with the crowd during breaks and could easily have been mistaken for part of the family. We hope to have them back for our next big event!

Something Borrowed  

Thanks Lorna. We really did feel like part of the family. Great to see all the fun you had with the photo booth too. We'd love be at your next big event. Keep us posted.
