Your wedding is a once in a lifetime event; a standout day that you will remember for the rest of your life. And when you look back on that day, what will you think of?
How to get the most out of your wedding entertainment.
Now for the fun part. At your reception, you can relax, kick up your heels, and simply focus on enjoying yourself. And what better way to create a fantastic atmosphere that having music to enhance the entire experience? With a glass of bubbly in hand, mingle with family and friends, some fabulous food, and finish up by dancing the night away.
Weddings are expensive affairs. After the initial engagement excitement, couples are suddenly faced with planning an event that involves venue hire, catering, entertainment, bridal wear, flower arrangements – all of them offering ‘bargains’ and ‘limited special offers’. Daunting at best, the combined costs of these wedding ‘necessities’ can be immensely challenging for an already stretched wedding budget.
So you have weighed up your options, and decided a live band is the way to go. Fantastic decision – great live music stimulates a festive atmosphere, provides the day with structure, highlights key moments and will help ensure that you and your guests can relax and simply enjoy the celebration.
Planning a wedding is full of decision-making. Religious or secular ceremony? 50 guests or 150? Sit-down dinner or canapés? Live band or DJ? And it’s all up to two people who may have never planned an event in their lives.
Selecting the style of music you have performed at your wedding ceremony can seem like a daunting prospect. Searching online will reveal that there are a multitude of options to choose from, and when you aren’t quite sure what you want, it can be difficult to commit to anything.

We had the best day/night of our lives!! Thank you so much for all your help. The band was spectacular. Everyone has been raving about the band.
It's been great working with you.
The music was the last finishing touch that completed the picture and it was BRILLIANT!! I didn't get a chance to hear much of Salt at the church but all the guests said they were great. My grandpa even quite enjoyed Poker Face!! Hahaha. And then the boys in Ellipsis were the coolest, loveliest and most talented group of musicians I could have hoped for and everyone had a ball dancing the night away. And the song selection was excellent. Thank you for listening to all my rushed and ranting phone calls and thank you for making it all so easy. We are both literally recommending you to everyone we know
I Just wanted to pass on our thanks for the band on Saturday night.
They did a fantastic job, and were perfect for our night. Everyone got up and had a boogie. We have been complimented on the band from a lot of our guests and we were actually blown away at their performance on the night.
If you could please pass on our thanks to the whole team that would be great! We will recommend The Usual Suspects to anyone and everyone with no hesitations.
All I can say is Thank you, Thank you, Thank you
You guys were awesome to work with and the music was fantastic. We really enjoyed it and many of our guests complimented on Jess Pollard. Please send her our thanks once agai
You guys ROCK!
Just wanted to send a quick email to say a huge thank you for The Usual Suspects being part of our wedding. The sound was incredible and can I just say a special thank you to Seb and Jess - their rendition of our bridal song from Lady Antebellum was incredible. I wish we had a recording but even that wouldn't do it justice. Beautiful, and everything we wished for.
You guys were the perfect professionals, and we are so honoured that you were part of our wedding. Thank you to Rob as well for being incredibly efficient and helping out the MCs.
Truly appreciate everything
Thank you so much for your support of our Hearts for Kids' Cancer Research & The Kids' Cancer Project. We are still determining the final figure raised, but we know that we are close to $75K-something that would not have been possible without your support. I have never seen a dance floor so packed at the end of a night! A huge thanks to Gus & all the members of The Usual Suspects for making our night such an experience for all of our guests & truly a night to remember X LCB
Beck and I are currently in Buenos Aires and can't stop talking about how sublime those two days were. You and your musos were professional, charming and contributed significantly to the success of our wedding. Thank you!
A quick note to say thanks for Saturday.
Damo did exactly as we asked and was great. You guys and Damo were perfect. Much appreciated
The Usual Suspects were great! Our guests couldn't get enough of them!
And thank you-for all your support and help over the last many months, even up til the last day in determining some key songs. You made everything very easy and I'm sure all your clients woud attest to that. I will definitely be recommending you to my other friends who are planning big days
Oh, we had the most amazing and perfect day! We were so very lucky for the way it turned out. Thank you!
We have a few friends getting married over the next 12 months and have passed on your details. However their weddings won't be nearly as cool as ours ;)
Definitely talk again soon. And thank you for everything
I would like to thank you and your team for such a professional outfit. Everything was so well done from the moment the deposit was made until the end of the evening. It meant that Lauren and I could focus on other areas of the surprise 30th, knowing that all the music was organised...Thanks again and please pass on my thanks to Damo for playing so well
It was a sensational day, with so much love, excitement and great music. The band was one of my highlights, so I'm very happy with how the music went and choosing The Usual Suspects
Thanks again for all your help organising J
The wedding was perfect!!!
Everyone absolutely loved the band.
Thank you for all your assistance (and patience). We just want to do it all over again!!!
We're still doing non stop fist pumps about how good the wedding was. All the guests were saying how great the band was! The rendition of Susudio was especially excellent and we really appreciate The Usual Suspects learning it especially for us!
Jared and I just wanted to thank you so much for all of your hard work in making our wedding day so very special!! The Usual Suspects were sensational and the crowd loved them!! The bridal dance was a huge hit with the guests!! Thanks once again :)
What an amazing night! It was so much fun and everything was so perfect.
Thank you so much for your help in the lead-up to the big night. And the band was amazing! The two singers were unreal.
I wanted to say how much your crew was appreciated-absolute best for our first foray into live entertainment. Not only great musicians, but real gentlemen
I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and the band for playing at our wedding on 29/12/12. My wife and I had the most amazing day and the guests certainly loved the tunes played by the band.
Thank you very much for all your professionalism with the organising of the music for our wedding. I will certainly be recommending Funkified to friends/family should they be looking for bands
Just wanted to say a big thanks for all your help making the IKON Party a huge success on Friday night.
We've had some amazing feedback from the agencythis morning so I really appreciate everyone's hard work and effort (especially given the rainy conditions) to pull off a great party.
I will be recommending you for all future events!
I just wanted to say thanks to you and the band - you were fantastic! From the ceremony, to the jazz on the balcony, to the dancing music we couldn't have been happier. So many people commented on the night and afterwards how great the music was. And to convince Wells to get up and sing following the impromptu dance was brilliant! It was one of the highlights of the night for me.
Add to this your professionalism in the lead up to the wedding, and I would not hesitate to recommend Funkified and The Usual Suspects to anyone!
We had such an amazing day which was made so much better by your involvement!
The Usual Suspects completely rocked the place and we had so many people tell us how good they thought the guys were. Salt were also brilliant and set the exact atmosphere we were looking for during the ceremony.
Thank you to you, the band and the DJ for all your efforts in making our event such a success. We have received nothing but positive feedback from the night, particulary regarding the entertainment. As you would have seen, they loved the variety of music you provided!
Asli and her band were amazing! Both you and Asli were so professional added that something awesome to the night :) Our guests were amazing at how talented Asli was, they had everyone up and dancing
Gus, the night would have been totally different had it not been for you and Let's Groove Tonight! They changed the atmosphere in the room once you started playing! Thanks again for the night, and thanks so much for extending the playing time for us, I will definately be recommending you!
Gus, we want to thank you and your band, The Usual Suspects, for a most memorable experience at our wedding. Your band's performance and professionalism on the night was absolutely superb.
We have continued to receive positive comments from our friends weeks after our wedding. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the performance - as evidenced by the fact that the dance floor was never empty!
To the team at Funkified- Thank you for making our special day the best of our lives. The Usual Suspects played such a big part and it would not have been the same without them there
The band was fantastic! They absolutely made our night, and we would love to give you a big thank you too. We couldn't have gotten a better group to deal with who were so professional and easy to get along with.
You helped us so much in organising the day, and Brett and I are so grateful for making the lead-up to our wedding so much easier!
Our wedding was truly the best day of our lives, and Nathan and I have to thank you and The Usual Suspects for making it so fantastic. Everyone at the wedding was amazed at how fantastic the band was, and the dancefloor was full the whole night thanks to them!
I will definitely be recommending you to other people - my best friend has already locked in the band for her wedding next year
Thank you SO much for the music on Sunday night - everybody I spoke to in the room was so complimentary of Ellipsis (especially the South American contingent!), and Justin and I just loved it. Every detail was exactly the way we pictured it, and I can't thank you enough. I just hope one of the many friends I passed your details onto uses Funkified, so I can enjoy it at their wedding!
Thank to you and the band for SUCH a good night! They were the perfect entertainment for our function and the feedback has been so positive - everyone was so impressed
Gus, just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and your amazing band Soulstice. Todd and I loved you and hope you enjoyed the night. Thanks for making our day complete. Please pass on our sincerest thanks to the band from Todd and I. We wish we could do it all again, just so we could enjoy you guys for a little longer!
Thanks you so much for such a brilliant night! All I heard all night was "Great band. Great band! We knew you guys would be excellent, but really it was unreal. The standout was 'Crazy In Love' - everyone was so pumped
Thank you so much Gus! We loved Soulstice, and you were an awesome person to work with. If I have any future work for you guys, I'll be sure to get in touch.
