FAQ

We know that planning a wedding, party or corporate function can be daunting. That’s why you engage professional people who can take the hassle and stress away.  We have played at hundreds of successful events from small parties to 2,000 guests.  Here are some of the common questions we are asked by our clients.

We play hits that everyone can sing and dance to. This includes soft background music, classic hit and top 40.

Weddings
A typical wedding reception is 5 hours, with 4 hours of entertainment. This usually includes 4 x 45 minute sets with short breaks between. We can accommodate your needs, and can also provide advice on what we have learned from performing at hundreds of successful weddings.

Corporate Events
A typical corporate event includes 3 x 45 minute sets. We can customise based on your needs.

We provide a quality sound system, as well as stage and dancefloor lighting.  You are welcome to use our microphone for your speeches, and save the additional hire cost.

Most of our bookings are private events.  In some cases, we might be able to sneak a peek with our customer’s permission.  We occasionally run a showcase, or a rehearsal where you can attend.  We also have demos on our website:  https://alliandandrew.com/demos/

Feel free to ask.  We will do our best.

We play at functions across Victoria and Southern NSW. We can quote on travel based on time and whether overnight accommodation is required.

We setup well before you and your guest arrive.  We will arrange this directly with your venue.

Absolutely.  Love is love.

We have an extensive repertoire of songs.  You are more than welcome to pick your favourites from our song list.  Experienced bands know what songs to play and when to play them.  We often change our sets based on your audience, the vibe of the night and requests. If there is a special song that is not on our list, in most cases we can learn it for you. We can also play songs of your choice during our breaks.

We love to!  We play through a compact sound system with an acoustic guitar.

Alli is an experienced MC.  She can be your MC (there may be a small charge if she needs to be there earlier) or coach your MC before the event.  We can provide a microphone for your speeches.

Our fees are customised to your requirements.  We provide some general information on our website as a guide. Bookings are secured with a 20% initial payment. The balance is due 7 days before your event.

Most bands expect to, and that can be a significant cost to you.  In most cases, we arrange something light to eat. We do not drink alcohol at your function.

We dress accordingly to the formality of your event. 

We can suggest the best format based on your requirements and budget.  This can include an acoustic format, an acoustic / electric combination with looper / tracks, or a 3-4 piece band.  

70% of our functions are acoustic/electric combinations.  We can cover all the songs that the full band can.  Importantly, we can do so in a smaller space and with a reasonable volume.
