What We Do That Sets Us Apart From Other Bands

Most live bands will only play 3 x 40 minute sets. Yet, most events and functions go for 5 or 6 hours. Hiring a band to only play three 40 minute sets over five hours doesn’t make any sense. Generally, the reason they play so little is because that’s all the songs they know. In contrast, if we are playing at a five hour wedding reception or birthday party, we will play five sets. 

We have an extensive repertoire of material. Click here to take a look at our song lists.

Versatility Is The Key

Most live bands can do two or three different styles of music convincingly.  With us, you get so much more.  Naturally, we have an extensive array of classic pop songs to fill the dance floor. These include songs from every decade since rock music began. Take a look at our song lists to see what’s in our repertoire. But, what about earlier on at you party or wedding reception?

What sets us apart from other live bands is our ability to create a fantastic ambience during pre-dinner drinks and throughout dinner. We can play;

  • Retro Acoustic Jazz
  • Bossa Nova
  • Calypso
  • Reggae
  • Crooning style jazz
  • Blues
  • Funk
  • Soul
  • Rock
  • Aussie rock
  • Classic hip-hop

I have posted hundreds of videos on YouTube of the band playing live. I have picked out fifty of these and added them to this website. Click here to see these fifty videos.

This live footage of the band playing at various weddings, functions and parties will hopefully demonstrate the vibe we can create, along with our versatility. Also, you’ll be able to see all the instruments that I play in addition to being the singer. These include trombone, trumpet, ukulele and guitar.
