QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
What songs will Wendybird play at my wedding? Can I choose the music?
Wendybird perform a varied repertoire which appeals to the music tastes of all your guests – you and young at heart.
Typically we perform classy jazz, soul, folk and reggae during the early stages of your wedding or event, so the guests have a chance to chat and mingle without being dominated by loud live music.
We pride ourselves on learning up to three songs for The Big Day. We suggest finding a song that is special to as you walk down the aisle, sign the register or for your first dance.
If there are too mnay to pick you can leave it in our very capable hands. ;)
The later dance sets are the most important part of the night for the band to nail. It is our aim to get all of your guests up and dancing and having a great time. Achieving this can create a really great atmosphere and insure your event is memorable…for the right reasons!
We are confident in our abilities to select appropriate songs throughout the night, and are happy for you to leave these decisions to us.
How long will Wendybird be playing at my wedding?
Wendybird prices can include from 3 - 5 hours of live music featuring up to 5 x 45min sets of live music, and background/”DJ” music on iPod controlled through our sound system during band breaks.
Please note, the 5 x 45min set times can be adjusted to fit in with your specific running sheet – that is, the 180mins total playing time can be positioned however you like.
The 3-5 hour duration satisfies most wedding durations as most venues work to 5 hour packages – usually 6pm to 11pm, or 7pm to 12am. If you would like the band at your reception for a period longer than 5 hours, that is of course fine but an additional cost may be involved.
How does Wendybird set up and sound check?
It takes us approximately 45mins to fully set up and sound check the band. This additional time is not considered part of the playing time and does not carry any additional cost. For example, if you book Wendybird for your wedding or corporate event which starts at 6pm and finishes at 11pm, we would arrive at 4 45pm – 5pm.

Does Wendybird travel? And how do the travel fees work?
Wendybird is based in the CBD locations of Melbourne travel far and wide. We do lots of wedding gigs in Byron Bay, Noosa, Margaret River, Daylesford, Yarra Valley, Hunter Valley…and many other rural locations around Australia. Travel is worked out on a per musician basis. Any location that is within 45 minutes of the CBD has no associated travel fee. Beyond that costs per musician are added to cover their travel time and petrol costs.
Our booking managers can supply you with custom travel quotes when you notify them of your venue location. *Note, couples who get married very far from the CBD often opt for a smaller band size (say a 2 or 3 piece) as this keeps the overall cost down.
