Searching for a solo musician for an intimate ceremony; an energetic performer to rock the reception? Dylan Raath has got you covered! With a versatile setlist ranging from melodic and moving to dynamic and lively, the layers of his loop pedal create the illusion of an entire musical group. Enquire now to learn how Dylan can make your special day one to remember!

This day is about you, your family and your friends. That’s the approach Dylan believes in wholeheartedly and he will go above and beyond to live this out. He will spend time with you, to truly understand your vision for your wedding and to make sure this vision comes to life through the power of music.

Whether it’s an acoustic tune to walk down the aisle, a personalised song for your first dance or a dance floor anthem, Dylan can put together a set list to make every part of your wedding perfect for you.

Where did it all begin? On a rock, on the beach in the Whitsundays, as one of the cute kids on the QANTAS commercial. Turns out they weren’t just kids off the street – Dylan was part of the National Boys Choir of Australia for 5 years. This, combined with a decade of singing in the shower (great bathroom acoustics), busking by the local supermarket (occasional free buns were a nice bonus) and an unwavering love for his 10th birthday present (you guessed it, his first guitar), were the foundations of Dylan’s musical journey.

Dylan has been playing at weddings for over 5 years, putting that special touch on people’s big days, whether at the ceremony, reception or entire event. He has also built a name for himself at AFL match day functions, playing in the member areas, where his 2 passions came together. He can also be seen making his way around the restaurants, markets, and sports clubs of Victoria and beyond, blessing them with his humour and warmth, one joke and one song at a time.

Dylan’s got you sorted for everything music-related and will make organising your entertainment a breeze. Go ahead and tick these off your to-do list:

  • Own gear - check. He only requires a powerpoint and some room to move.
  • Collaboration on the day with celebrant, MC, caterers, and other entertainers - check. 
  • Personalised setlist - check. Dylan will work with you to select songs that are right for canapes, the reception or your entire wedding.

Above all, Dylan loves to meet new people and have a chat. He prides himself on flexibility and will work with you to customise a package that is exactly what you are after. There are no obligations, so get in touch, have a look at his set list and chat to Dylan about how he can make your big day as special as you deserve.

Questions and Answers

I have a special song (or two) that I'd like you to play. Do you take requests?

Dylan Raath Music

Whether it be for your walk down the aisle or for your first dance, I would be glad to play your special song for you. I like to allow a couple of months, as it can sometimes take a while to come up with the perfect arrangement. If you would like me to send you a demo (such as if you need to figure out timings down the aisle or rehearse your first dance), I would be more than happy to do so.

As for taking song requests from your guests on the day, if I know the song I am more than happy to play it!

We were lucky enough to book Dylan for our wedding ceremony. It was a last minute booking so there was limited preparation time but Dylan was so helpful and accommodating. He suggested beautiful songs to play and worked seamlessly into our ceremony despite us never having met him before the day and the entire thing being organised over email! He is incredibly talented and is also just a wonderful person to work with. Everyone loved his music and it was an absolute pleasure to have Dylan be part of our special day. We could not recommend him highly enough and are so thankful for everything he did in helping make our day as amazing as it was!

Jake and I were lucky enough to have Dylan perform at our wedding ceremony and reception last month. Dylan went above and beyond for us through the entire of our wedding planning and then again on the day. Dylan is extremely talented, a genuinely lovely guy, he is a dream to work with, very efficient and so generous with the effort and time he puts towards his client. Dylan very kindly learnt not one, but four songs for us that aren’t on his set list! To ensure the day was exactly what we envisioned, he also sent us recordings prior to the wedding, which we will always treasure. We loved having you apart of our day Dylan, you are so very talented and we cannot thank you enough for everything you did to ensure we had the perfect day.

Dylan was so friendly yet professional from the start! Being recommended through a friend, when we first met him it was like catching up for a coffee with an old friend! Dylan played at our ceremony, and a few hours into our reception and he nailed it all, even learning a couple of songs for us that we wanted. He communicated with us from before our first meeting until a week after the wedding. We had so many compliments and comments on how great he was and sounded! Nothing was too hard for him in the planning process, we highly recommend him!!

Dylan was nothing short of amazing!! Nothing was too much trouble for him in the lead up to our wedding and on the night. I can’t speak highly enough of him and I can’t recommend him enough! Thanks Dylan

It was a pleasure to have kept you and your guests entertained all night! Not too often I get the pleasure of seeing The Slug (dance move) busted out during my performance. You guys were all amazing - I wish you and Ben a long and happy marriage!

We were lucky enough to have Dylan preform at our wedding ceremony & reception back in February. Dylan went above & beyond for us & even agreed to be our amazing MC for the night. Dylan is extremely talented and an all round genuine guy. He is a dream to work with. Dylan kindly learnt all of the songs we had picked for our day & made sure they all flowed on from one another & he even sent recordings to make sure it was exactly what we wanted. We loved having you as a part of our day Dylan, you are so very talented and we cant thank you enough for everything you did to ensure we had the most perfect day. Everyone loved you and we kept getting asked where we found you! Thank you again for being a part of our day, even when it was your

We had the pleasure of Dylan play at our wedding ceremony and after wards for our guests. Due to COVID we had to reschedule and in the end had a small ceremony to just get it done. This was a last minute decision and Dylan made the process so easy and took the stress off. He got back to quick was, fitted us in with 4 days notice. He also learnt a song I wanted to walked down the aisle to in about 3 days. All our guests loved him and I couldn’t fault any part and made our day as special as he could. Thanks Dylan

Big shout out to Dylan Raath, thanks mate for making our wedding celebrations so memorable. Your fantastic music entertained our guest with everyone giving positive feedback. “Where did you find this guy, he’s great” was heard more than once. Thanks for going that bit extra with the impromptu 1st dance request right at the end of your gig. Owen & Lee

Hi Owen! Your wedding was a perfect day in an amazing spot on your property, and I am very glad to have played a part. I’m also stoked to see that my photo made an entire page of your weddings photo album!

Dylan preformed at our wedding and was amazing! Such an great voice, very professional & had a fantastic variety of songs played on the night. Everyone had a great time singing and dancing right up to the very end of the night. We cannot recommend Dylan enough if you are looking at having live music for your wedding (or any event for that matter). Thanks Dylan for making our special day memorable!

Hi Kimberley. Thank you very much for the review! It was an absolute pleasure being involved in your special day. Not only that, but you and Mark are two fantastic people that continue to show me plenty of support. Appreciate it!

We booked Dylan to perform at our wedding and could not recommend him highly enough! His voice is phenomenal, his music really helped set the perfect tone and atmosphere we wanted our big day. He played as our guests were arriving, during and after the ceremony. We even requested a few specific songs that were not in his repertoire to add to the set and to say he absolutely nailed them is an understatement!! His rendition of “To Build a Home” which I walked down the aisle to was better than we ever imagined it could be, we actually used his recording of this song in our wedding video we loved it so much. Our wedding was in 2017 and to this day I still have people commenting on how much they enjoyed listening to him play! Book him in, you won’t be disappointed!!!

Hi Mikaela, thank you very much for the great review! Your wedding was in one of the best spots I have played in, with so many fantastic people. I am very glad to have been played a part in such an amazing day. Fantastic song choice too - I am flattered that you used my version of To Build a Home in your wedding video!
