Mind-blown! Such an awesome professional. A complete experience and business example to follow. If you are planning a wedding or function, do yourself a favor - start with Nick and plan everything else around him. Nick will actually help you plan your special event. The music is unbelievable, and he can learn new songs by request and deliver it in many ways better than the original artist. It doesn't even stop there, he can seamlessly go from Singer to DJ and MC. The happiest new couple from Sydney - Ric and Leti

Thank you so much Ricardo, this means so much to me. I know how much music means to both you and Leti and it was an honour to play a small part of your big day! I wish you all the very best for the future! :)

Nick went above & beyond for our wedding! From meeting up with us prior to the wedding & mapping out plans for the day, to the actual day. I can not fault him. Not only did he play guitar with live vocals (incredible voice) but he also got everyone into party mode with his DJing skills. Thank you so much Nick. Our day wouldn’t of been what it was without you. You are passionate and genuine with your love for music and it really shows when you are playing and djing. We would 110% Nick!

Nick is amazing! He was our MC/DJ along with having his acoustic package for our ceremony, canapé hour and reception. From the moment I booked Nick, I couldn’t have been happier. Nick went the extra mile to help me in other areas where I needed the help, even recording a song for me to listen to for our walking down the aisle song - which we chose & was absolutely beautifully performed. All our guests commented on how great Nick was. I could not recommend Nick enough. If your looking for someone who is able to cater to al of your needs at a reasonable price-you will not regret booking Nick!

Nick Read  

Thank you so much Melissa! It was great to visit Tamworth for the first time and be able to perform and DJ your special day in the beautiful Vineyards in December. I will never forget this experience!

6 Dec 2021

Nick was absolutely amazing! Not only is he so musically gifted, so much so that every single person approached us at some point during the wedding to tell us how great he was during canapes, during the meals he had everyone singing along and the dancefloor as he DJ'd was pumping all night long, but he also was absolutely incredible in the lead up! Nick went out of his way to answer all of our questions, called us up whenever we needed answers and even called to keep us informed of where he was at as we went through the craziness that was the COVID lockdowns in what must have been a very stressful time for him with no gigs. He went above and beyond to re-assure us and make us feel comfortable and we cannot recommend him enough! He is an amazing bloke and a class performer!

Thank you so much Elaura for taking the time to write this review! I had the best time being a part of your special day, I wish we could do it all over again! Thank you for having me and I wish you all the very best for the future!

Nick fit in like family. He was spot on with our music taste after our meetings he really had a grasp of who we are as a couple. And all our guests loved him !! Nick had 2 meetings with us before our big day. We went over our music tastes, what our timelines looked like and what song selections we had. Nick was there every step of the way, weather it be checking in on us after we had to post pone our wedding day due to Covid or just to see if we needed advice in planning our big day. Nick even played amazing live !! We had listened to his live streams several times through Covid but OMG he is even better in person. You can really tell he loves what he does just from the passion in his voice. Nick really made our day special.

Nick is incredibly talented, his music really created a beautiful atmosphere at our wedding and we honestly couldn't be happier. Thank you Nick for being such a dream to work with - from helping explain and guide us through song selections to his amazing voice and skillset as an acoustic guitarist, singer and a dj. So many of our guests commented on how perfect the music . Nick even learnt some of our favourite songs to sing, and for our 'first dance' took on the challenge of singing a slow acoustic version of one of our favourite dance songs and dropping it into the original version - he had everyone up on the dance floor! Would highly recommend if your looking for someone who sounds amazing, is responsive, professional, attentive and easy to work with. Thanks for helping create our dream wedding! - Lauren & Lloyd

From first talking with Nick to having him as our MC/DJ for our wedding- he was incredibly friendly, helpful and had a great sense of humour. He made our reception full of great vibes and good times! He is an absolute legend and pumped everyone up ready for a great celebration and night on the dancefloor. We also had the privilege of hearing him perform- he has such a great voice and is extremely talented. Thank you Nick for creating an awesome atmosphere, we will be recommending you to everyone.

We had Nick for our reception for the music and MC and he was great. He worked with us closely to find out exactly what we were after and the evening was perfect.

Thank you so much Teigan! It was an absolute pleasure to visit Bathurst and perform on your special day! I wish you all the best for the future! :)

27 Mar 2021

Nick was our MC/DJ/live entertainment for our wedding and we could not recommend him highly enough. The quality of his music, banter over the mic, and general presence is second to none. His ability and willingness to learn and play a particularly complex acoustic song for the brides walk down the aisle really made a special mark on our day that will stick in our minds for the rest of our lives. Thank you again for playing your role in our big day so perfectly, and good luck for yours... 11/10.

Nick Read

From the moment we made contact with Nick we trusted him and felt like we were friends. He has and was professional, reliable, talented and just generally a nice guy. Nick was our MC/entertainer/DJ and host. All our guests were raving about him and asking where we found him and said how much of a lovely guy he was and of course he good he was. Thanks so much Nick! We will definitely keep in touch and come see a gig!! Good luck with everything in the future ❤️

Nick Read  

Thank you so much Sarah! It was an absolute pleasure to be there! I'm so glad you could go ahead and we could get dancing in for your friends and family! All the best!
