Do wedding bands provide their own sound and lighting equipment, or do I need to arrange it separately?
Our professional musicians supply all sound and lighting equipment, so you can focus on what matters – which is enjoying the big day. We’re here to provide a seamless, stress-free experience – our team will come in and set up, then pack up, all equipment in the most fuss-free way.
Can wedding bands also act as MCs or provide DJ services during their breaks or after their performance?
Many of our bands have a member that will perform basic MC duties that cover all of the announcements on the night and keep things running on track. Most charge around $300 - $500 + GST for this service.
We do recommend a family member or friend perform these duties to add a personal touch, however if that is not an option and you don’t want to engage a professional MC, the band option is a good middle ground.
