When you book one of our bands DJ’s or ceremonial musician (s) you are securing music played by real artists who among them are ARIA award winners, gold record holders and award winning producers. Artists who have toured the world, studied with the best and performed with the best that Australia and the world have to offer. Our people have performed in every possible situation, from concert halls to pubs, to weddings, to nightclubs, from audiences as small as fifty up to a capacity crowd at the MCG!
It is our opinion that there are far too many “hit and miss” agencies throwing bands together who are inexperienced or in some cases have never even played with one another. Sometimes this works and sometimes it can be a disaster, an expensive disaster that will leave a long lasting bad memory of what should have been the happiest day of your life. That is why we only represent a small number of the finest musicians who genuinely play together on a regular basis.
When it comes to pricing you’ll notice that we are far more reasonable than our major competitors. Some clients occasionally ask about the costs of employing a band for their events and we generally reply in this way. If you spend roughly $100 per guest on food and alcohol and you have 90 guests – you’ve spent $9,000.00 on catering. Generally speaking clients will spend roughly $3,000.00 on a band….a third of the cost of catering. Will your guests remember what they had for dinner or will they remember the awesome night they had dancing to the band and having a ball with their friends and family?
When booking our people you can rest assured that every aspect of the sound and music for your event will be taken care of. We’ll be there to make the bridal or wedding party entrance perfect, then later on we’ll get down to business and get that dance floor packed!!! Bands provide all their own P.A and lighting and can provide a wireless microphone for speeches if needed.
PLEASE NOTE: CORPORATE FUNCTIONS WILL ATTRACT A DIFFERENT FEE STRUCTURE AS THESE EVENTS ARE LOGISTICALLY MORE COMPLEX.
All bands set lists are available online for you to view and a member of the band can also act as your MC for an additional $150.00. All band configurations can be reduced or added to as your needs require. Individual factors will influence pricing, however here are are some examples of quotes (GST included) from some of our recent events.
