Could not have been happier with Brown Bear and Hooves. You get the best of both worlds. They play beautiful acoustic music for ceremony and meal and upbeat music that everyone can dance to once the dancefloor kicks off. So lovely and easy going. All our guests raved about how amazing they were. Couldn't recommend them enough.

Josh and Alisa were AMAZING!!!! For only a 2 person band they blew us away at our ceremony and reception. They had our guests dancing until the early hours of the evening. I can not recommend Brown Bear and Hooves enough to help celebrate your wedding, as they did ours.

These guys were absolutely spectacular. They learnt and played our 'aisle' and 'signing the register song' which completely made the moment perfect. Death Cab for Cutie and The Beatles never sounded better than when Brown Bear and Hooves performed it. They created the most fun, welcoming and relaxed vibe with their tunes during the pre-dinner nibbles and were an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you guys so much - you were a massive part of making our wedding day the best day of our lives.

The absolute highlight of our day!! Not one guest didn’t compliment brown bear and hooves! They were so easy to deal with eapically for an indecisive bride who happily couldn’t make a decision’ they read our guest so well and help make the day I had imagined!!

Josh and Alisa performed at both our ceremony and reception(before the DJ took over) and they were nothing short of AMAZING! We received so many nice compliments about how friendly, professional they are and how beautiful it was to hear them sing and play. I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a chilled, yet fun vibe to add to their special day <3 Thank you Josh and Alisa, we will cherish the music you played forever.

We were lucky enough to have Josh and Alisa play for us throughout our ceremony and wedding reception. They're truly amazing and talented people. Their songs were perfect, making for a chilled afternoon vibe and pumping dance floor into the night. They were excellent and easy to deal with...nothing was ever a drama from song requests to a last minute ceremony location change. Our guests and ourselves can't stop talking about them!

We can't thank these guys enough! They were exceptional! My only regret was not having them play for the entire night! Professional and fun. Reccommend to all!

A standout vendor for us!! Josh and Alisa travelled from Newcastle to Wagga Wagga for our wedding day!! Both went above and beyond to make sure the music for our day was exactly what we wanted. No request was too difficult for this duo. From first contact it was evident that Josh was going to be a breeze to work with. BBH played during our ceremony, canapés and over dinner and we have had so many people compliment the music on the day. We absolutely loved the chilled vibe of their music over dinner. Chris and I caught ourselves a number of times throughout the evening commenting on the music and how beautiful Alisa's voice was! We honestly cannot thank these guys enough- we would use BBH again and again if we could!

BB&H were absolutely sensational and our guests loved their performance. The two of them together just works - they have a style that is so appealing to so many people, which is why our guests loved their music. BB&H will always be our #1 go to for future events

Brown Bear and Hooves played during our ceremony and did another set following on from the ceremony, pre reception. I was initially a bit apprehensive about having live music during the ceremony and how the songs I had chosen would sound, but as soon as I heard them start playing heard Alisa start to sing as I walked down the aisle I knew it was one of the best decisions I had made. We had a range of songs in the ceremony and they performed them all perfectly with their special Brown Bear and Hooves take on them that gives me goosebumps just thinking about it. All of our guests were absolutely blown away by them. They are a lovely couple to work with, very accommodating and approachable. I can't recommend them enough.

Josh and Alisa were absolutely fantastic as our wedding band. They were great in the lead up giving feedback on what might work best at the venue for us and them. They were a huge hit with the guests! I will recommend to anyone and everyone! Thanks again!

Perfection! They were a pleasure to work with from day one. Easy to get along with and very professional. They sounded amazing and everyone commented on how wonderful they were and how lovely they are as people too. We had them for the ceremony and garden party afterwards and they were the perfect fit. They played the right music for the venue and the crowd. They weren't too loud so everyone could mingle easily in the fairly small space. They created the perfect atmosphere and we feel very lucky to have be able to book them for our special day. We wished we had them for the reception too! They arrived early to set up so when guests arrived it was flawless. They had professional equipment and the sound was of great quality even outside. Very reasonable price! They are such lovely people too, you will want to go and have a coffee with them afterwards!

Brown Bear and Hooves were magical. They look and sound amazing! They played chilled out music during the early evening drinks and played more upbeat music after dinner. They even accommodated my request of moving around my small venue for different sets. Just loved them. Highly recommended.

Thank you so much for playing at out wedding reception!! We had a ball and so did all of our guests!! We have heard so many compliments for you guys from our guests saying how amazing our band was, how they danced all night, obviously "Drive" was a massive hit too and Toby and I really loved dancing to the songs you guys learnt for our 1st dance. You did a wonderful job! The venue coordinator and our MC also said how great you guys were to work with and our nervous MC really appreciated your sideline encouragement! Thank you again we are so stoked we picked you guys to be such a great part of our day! Looking forward to hearing you play again in the future. Cannot recommend these guys enough a pleasure to have on board :)
