Super fine wedding bands in Canberra? (As in music)

By donkers - 26 June 2011 19

I’m getting hitched in October and, assuming I survive my buck’s night, I’d love to sign up a great band for the big day.

Looking for a band to play soul/motown/hits that’ll get everyone up and dancing.

Any suggestions??

What’s Your opinion?

I had Something like this play at my wedding last year. As you can understand planning a wedding is very stressful, but the band were incredibly helpful and professional. It put my mind at ease knowing it was one last thing to worry about on the day.
I had them play my ceremony and reception.
They played all the hits- from older stuff my parents and relatives could dance to, to current songs. They even stayed later to play when speaches and dinner ran over time.
I would definately recommend Something like this.

The Silky Six are a great option. I saw them at a corporate function a couple of months ago. They are a six piece (funnily enough) with male and female vocalists. Great set list. They also played some acoustic stuff over dinner.

+1 to “Something Like This”.

Myself and my fiancee had them play for us at our reception a month or two ago. FANTASTIC! Super easy to deal with and got everyone up and dancing the whole night…highly recommended.

They played 60’s classics thru to modern day stuff, very professional and great to deal with.
We had them play as a duo during canapes and then as a four piece band at the reception.
Highly recommended!..

Thanks for the rec, marcus77! I’ve just booked these guys, which is not how I thought my day would end, but what can I say, they won me over! I’ve had a really positive experience so far, and Rohan is great — very professional, prompt email replies, really friendly, and made a real effort to give us what we wanted.

Hopefully I’ll be back after the wedding (which is still a fair way off) with a similarly glowing review about their actual performance!

Annie and the Armadillos are not the band they were a few years ago, the musicians all quit in March 2010 when they found they were being ripped off, what’s been patched together since is a very dull band with an old-time blues based repertoire.

I’ll vote for Annie and the Armadillos as well. I hired them for a work gig a few years ago, and they had the place rocking.

thanks folks – look forward to checking some of the bands out

Check out the band Who’s Ya Daddy (http://www.whosyadaddy.com.au/)
They have an amazing list of covers and have a great list of soul/motown and hits from the 50s all the way up to current.

Hiya Donkers. I play in a local cover band called Identical Strangers, and we’d love to talk to you. We do a wide range of music and can cope with whatever you are after.

You can email us at info@theidenticalstrangers.com and check out our website (including testimonials) at http://www.theidenticalstrangers.com.

If you want to see us live, we are playing at the Holy Grail in Kingston on Friday July 8, and King O’Malley’s in the city on Friday July 15. Both shows kick off at 10pm.

Hope to hear from you,
Darren

You’re getting married? Now, there’s your first problem.

Overheard 3:17 pm 27 Jun 11

While we’re sharing the love around, I’ll heartily second both Annie and the Armadillos plus Groovalicious.

I’d challenge the comment about Heuristic being Latin. Mitch had another Latin-based band, but Heuristic are much more versatile than that. He has a song list at the link above.

+1 for Annie and the Armadillos, they did my wedding and everyone had a good time.
Heuristic are good too, if you like a more Latin style.
Or if you want Top 40 rock covers, get Charlie Bold.

Swaggie 1:43 pm 27 Jun 11

+1 for Heuristic and also look up Hit Parade, seen them 3 times and they’ve had the place rocking every time

Can highly recommend Groovalicious for dancing, awesome set list! 🙂 They play lots of local gigs so you can see them in action beforehand as well.

Can personally recommend ‘Heuristic’ from having attended two weddings they played at.

+1 on that. We had them at a work gig a few years ago, and they had the joint rocking.
