Pricing- Melbourne Wedding Musicians
Our band is priced at the middle of the market. If you’re looking for the cheapest Melbourne wedding band, we may not be your people. But we’re also in no way near the most expensive wedding band! Our prices are moderate. Top quality musicianship comes at a price, and music is our full time job. Once we are booked for your event date a lot of work goes into the performance. Not only have we trained and practiced for years, but we make all the logistical and administrative arrangements to get four or five of the best industry musicians and singers to your event. We have songs to learn, and a run sheet for the day to write. Not to mention all of our ongoing showcase dates we appear at, as well as our online presence to maintain. Once you book us, you’ll be in relationship with one of Melbourne’s most professionally run bands. We will keep in contact with you right up to the event date (and beyond), ensuring we deliver an amazing live band, at your wedding or private event.
Band Formations- Melbourne Wedding Musicians
In our regular 4 piece band formation, you’ll get two singers who each play an instrument (Lexi and one male), then you’ll have a drummer, and our bass guitar player. For clients looking to up the anti a little bit and spend that extra $500-600 or there about, our 5 piece party band is the above formation, but add on our world class Saxophone player too! As a general rule of thumb, a 4 person band is enough to get the party started and keep it going all night long. Our 5 person band is a good option for those hosting a larger live event or wedding, say 100 guests or more. With our Saxophone player, you’ll add extra oomph to an already amazing sounding live band, achieving that snazzy saxophone sound. So without further ado, lets introduce our core band members. Some of our regular band members have played over 750 live weddings in Victoria, so here goes!

Through the years he has played in all sorts of environments, from cruise ships to varying degrees of classy bars to musical theatre and his fair share of pubs; playing all the classics and plenty of obscurities along the way. Generally rocking a fretless five string bass, he can be also be spotted playing his classic Fender P bass and also revels in any opportunity to play chunky synth bass lines on his Moog; think Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, Bruno Mars… As a lover of all music, Alan never fails to bring his enthusiasm, passion, personality and sense of fun to the stage, which makes him one of the best Melbourne Wedding Musicians to see perform liveMelbourne.
