Acoustic Duos Melbourne
THINKIN’ ABOUT AN ACOUSTIC DUO FOR YOUR WEDDING CEREMONY?
We love the way you think! They have double the presence of a soloist, but are also a highly versatile option that can set the mood and atmosphere for any type of wedding. Sometimes, your wedding venue can’t accommodate a large act, but a duo means you can still have a ‘band’ feel rather than a soloist or DJ. The team at Hey Jack work with the best in the biz, and we’ve helped provide amazing acoustic duos for all kinds of weddings under the Melbourne sun (or rain, you know Melbs). We know what to look for to ensure your wedding entertainment is memorable, for all the right reasons.
Each of our experienced acoustic singing duos help tie together all the special moments throughout your day. From the aisle, to your big entrance as an officially married couple, and of course the emotional first dance! Whichever of our talented Melbourne wedding duos you select, one thing is for sure – they will ensure your day is full of the perfect ambience and atmosphere, from start to finish.
MUSIC TO TAKE YOU FROM DAY TO all night long
It goes without saying that entertainment is a massive part of any wedding (but there we go, we said it anyway). Music plays a part in every moment of the day and ties together all the important moments of the day, from your arrival to your exit.
Your duo can be on hand for your entire wedding, entertaining guests before you set foot on the aisle and playing as the song of your choice as you walk towards your future life partner. Their early presence really helps sets the tone for the entire day to come. From there, your duo will be present as your guests mingle during canapé hour, and to hit the big notes as you and your
partner are announced and make your big entrance as an officially married couple. They will deliver the emotion (and potentially the tears, #sorrynotsorry) as you take to the stage for your first beautiful dance together and any father/daughter, mother/son dances too.
Our incredible duos know how to flick the switch and take things to an upbeat mode for the dancefloor, and this is a perfect time to have a DJ or another band member join to surprise your guests and elevate your entertainment.
SO, IS AN amazing LIVE MUSIC DUO RIGHT FOR YOU?
On the DJ note, they really know how to get a party started. For that reason, many couples opt for an all-day package; the acoustic duo plays from the start of the day till the end, and a DJ gets added to the reception. This means you get the best of both worlds – an extra fun atmosphere with the benefits of a live singer and instrument or two playing over the songs the DJ spins at the perfect moments.
YOUR DAY, your way WITH OUR TALENTED DUO ARTISTS!
Your chosen performers can learn up to three songs of your choice, so if you have some ‘must haves’ speak now or forever hold your peace (sorry, we had to!). Let Hey Jack know in advance and we’ll get it done! Most often our couples love to hear a song that reminds them of a moment just the two of you share together or something you know your family or guests will LOVE!
You can hear your requested songs at any time throughout the day. Some popular choices are when you walk down the aisle or make your *official* entrance as a married couple. A lot of couples also love to hear a song with a special meaning to them when they take to the stage for the first dance.
CUSTOMISED, bespoke WEDDING ENTERTAINMENT
This involves adding an extra musician/instrument to accompany your talented artist choice. Enhance and elevate your ceremony with the soft notes of an acoustic guitar, piano or cello that complements your duo’s breathtaking notes.
Likewise, for your reception, if you’d like to turn things up a notch or two, try adding an electric guitar, drums or a trumpet or saxophone.
Unbeatable additions when it comes to interactivity include saxophonists and bongo drums – they can weave in and out of the crowd to mingle up close and personal with your guests for entertainment that is on another level.
WEDDING ENTERTAINMENT THAT DELIVERS value
We know money talk is a little taboo, but we love being transparent so what you ‘see’ is what you get. If you have your heart set on an acoustic duo and are on a budget, there are lots of ways to make this option work for you. Firstly, if you’d just have live music for your ceremony but not the reception, that will give you some extra savings (as opposed to an all-day package). On that note, ask us about our packages. We’ve specially designed these to deliver you the best value for your big day.
For example, Hey Jack specialises in photography and videography services also so this trio when bundled is more cost effective. If you need to relocate in between your ceremony and reception, we’ve got you covered. We account for this upfront so you don’t get hit with sneaky extra charges later. If your coverage is booked for seven hours, this includes travel time in between, not on top!
Hear the best music duo beats, from anywhere
Whether your wedding is being held at a charming farm cottage, on a gorgeous winery, along the coast or city central, our music duos travel all around Melbourne. We can play from the beach or the by the bar! Worst case scenario – let’s say your venue doesn’t have power, no problem, we have a battery powered sound system.
Rest assured every single performer we work with is part of our Hey Jack fam – meaning we know them well and they have loads of wedding experience under their belt. We promise we’ll deliver a super engaging, seasoned professional who adapts to the wedding they’re at. Our musicians read the room and respond to the energy, be that relaxed or upbeat.
Meet & Greet
We want you to feel at ease and excited for your entertainment choice – no buyer’s remorse here! For that reason, we have lots of videos available of all our different duo acts so you can get to know their performance style ahead of time. This is an important resource to help you make the best decision for the look and feel you are after for your wedding. We understand that in some cases this might not be enough, and it’s nice to see your act perform live or meet them in person prior. If you’d like, we can organise a meeting with your musicians, or if the dates suit you, you might be able to see them performing live at a pre-booked public venue. We love the chance to meet our couples beforehand and know it helps to be reassured that you’re in a safe pair of hands for something as important as your wedding!
Curly Questions, Straight Answers
We love the curly questions! Let’s go through some of our most wondered about: Let’s say you’re ready to lock in your entertainment duo in but aren’t certain of your wedding times yet? Don’t sweat it, we can work around you! You can pay your deposit to secure the act of your choice on the date you want, and then we’ll work out the finer details later.
What about bathroom breaks and food refuels? It’s something people hesitate to ask but makes sense to wonder about since your act will inevitably need to pop the loo if they’re playing for several hours. Each experienced artist knows how to keep their breaks short and sweet. Breaks are timed so that you have live music for all the important moments throughout the day. Your performers can also cue a pre-corded song to play during any breaks that fits your overall song selection style. Want to learn more? Check out our FAQ’s or reach out to us with your question!
Choosing the right acoustic duo singers for your special day
The perfect duo is going to be slightly different for everyone, but in saying that, there are a few things to consider when making your decision. Is the style of music you’d like to hear jazzy, more rock based, smooth R&B or a mix of all everything, including pop hits and wedding classics? What’s the perfect music mix for you? A sophisticated affair might call for classical instruments, whereas a relaxed wedding that is building up to an upbeat reception would work fab with an acoustic duo and DJ combo.
If your vision includes additional instruments, which are the best to complement and support your wedding duo? (We can help with this!) We suggest you take advantage of the opportunity to check available videos that showcase your duo’s talent. This will give you insights into whether they will be a fantastic fit for your wedding. Remember you can ask us if you’d like to meet them prior to booking them for your wedding. Finally, are there any special requests you’d like adhered to for your wedding – we can check with your preferred act and come back to you. The entire Hey Jack team is here to make your day as magical and memorable as possible!
