Questions and Answers

Are you willing to travel out of town?

Van Sereno

Definately yes I am willing to travel out of town. There will be a distance premium if it's more than a couple of hours away, it gets a but dangerous dodging the kanagaroos and wombats at night from 2 in the morning onwards (I dont want to end up falling asleep at the wheel from exhaustion).

Can you play light background instrumental music for canapes and pre drinks?

Van Sereno

Absolutely, I can go solo acoustic guitar (not nylon string but steel string) for a more ambient vibe so that your guests can talk and wait for the bride and groom, warm them up for a great night!

How will I know that the music is under control?

Van Sereno

I will pay attention to your needs throughout the whole evening. If the music is too loud I will turn it down. If the music is too soft I will turn the music up. If you need to do speeches early it's no problem.  If you want to do a surprise impromptu live performance with me to dedicate to your partner, let's go, just hoping we both know the song!... If you want to use my microphone instead of the venues in house system you are most welcome. I am at your service, this is your night, I want to make sure it goes down in your memory as a great night with family and friends.

Have you played with anyone famous?

Van Sereno

Yes, locally I have played support act to Vanessa Amarosi, Diesel, Marcia Hines, Cristine Anu, Max Sharam, Richard Clapton and have jammed with John Stevens (Noiseworks), Natalie Bassingthwaighte (Rogue Traders) Rachael Beck (Hey Dad & Beauty & The Beast), Michael Cormick (Beauty & The Beast) and Claude Hay

Internationally I have played support act to John Hammond, Andrew Roachford (Roachford band) and John Legend

Can you set up two playing areas?

Van Sereno

Absolutely! Say for instance you have a garden wedding and the ceremony is at the back near the fence of your property, I can either get a long extension cord or go battery amp, then for the main stage I will go at the corner near the photo booth or gift table near the cake.

Definately 5 stars. Van was fantastic! He arrived on time and played professionally on the day. I had quite a few people comment on how good his music was. My guests loved it!

Van Sereno  

Thank you Laura, it was an absolute pleasure playing for your wedding at Parklands Country Lodges in Blackheath last Saturday! It was a joy watching them dance!

Van had everyone up and dancing the whole night! He was fantastic and really went above and beyond for us on the day.

Angus and Taryn, you two are a beautiful couple, treating me like a five star celebrity even inviting me to stay over (its was a couple of hours out of town)! Thank you for the fun day and evening, it was an honour being the live entertainment for your special day!

Van was fantastic! Anything I asked of him was not a problem. He is very easy going and his experience as a musician means he is also very versatile. He added his own little twists to the songs we wanted which was amazing. He sounds great and can play any genre. He brought all his own equipment with him along with a percussionist. 5 star service!

Bless you Dom! Your wedding stands as the furthest I've driven for work! It was a beautiful wedding and reception! Thank you for a great gig and lovely accomodation in Byron Bay!

Van was amazing at our wedding- firstly he played chilled, acoustic music for guests to enjoy during the canapes. He also played at our reception and kicked off the dance floor and everyone loved his music so much we had a pumping dance floor the whole time! He made our wedding so much fun and so many guests commented on how much they liked his music. He has a wide variety of songs in his repertoire to suit different styles and ages. I would highly recommend Van to anyone wanting live music at their wedding.

Van, thank you so much for playing at our wedding. Your music during the ceremony, lawn canapes and reception was absolutely beautiful. We received so many compliments on the day and wouldn't have done anything differently. To others, we'd highly recommend Van to play at your event! He was easy to communicate with, responsive and had great recommendations on songs for our wedding. He was also open to playing some left-of-field songs (including a tribute to our fur-child), which we really appreciated.

He's good. There were changes on the day and he seemed to be able to adapt pretty quickly and responded well. His choice of music was really good. Everybody enjoyed his performance.

Van Sereno  

There was a lot of love in the room! It was easy for me to play for such a lovely couple, a beautiful setting, and receptive family and friends. Thank you for trusting me with the night, glad you were happy with my work
