Our core values are to be young & fresh, flexible and reliable.

One Melbourne’s most popular Wedding and Corporate Events Bands, Nightshift have won 12 industry awards for their service to clients. We specialise in intimate events up to 150 guests for clients who have cool taste in music, with an appreciation of great tunes and beats, rather than the standard function band repertoire.
Sensation Entertainment Wedding Melbourne
0418 565 146
The birth of Sensation Entertainment.
It was in 2007 that Rosie finally decided to take her passion for singing, performing and vocal coaching to a new level, and she started Sensation Entertainment as a full time business. Sensation Entertainment initially provided live music, MC and dance entertainment for clients, however in 2011 she took the opportunity to train as a professional DJ, so she could style complete functions for her clients, and hasn’t looked back since!
Her interest and passion for DJing was driven by a desire to style ALL kinds of music for her client functions. For example, if a Hindi wedding, why not be able to provide a Hindi set of music for the event? If a New Orleans themed event, why not provide Ragtime Jazz Music to help create the theme and mood? It was a wonderful decision, as she can DJ and MC more than any other performance medium in the industry, and she really enjoy styling the music for her clients.

Rumours Band - Wedding Entertainment Melbourne
0417 182 955
Annie from Nightshift Band says a few factors add up to a wedding band being awesome, but she considers the most important one is that the musicians must love what they do. “Over the past 18 years of playing for brides and grooms, and after winning 12 industry awards, we’ve learnt the way to still enjoy what we do is to play music we love ourselves. And that sometimes means we can’t please everyone. But nor should a band try to. That’s why we specialise in genres that appeal to us: Soul, Funk and old school RnB. If musicians love the music they perform, they’re going to play it well. And loving what we do shows on stage. It means we deliver a genuine, solid performance. Clients aren’t stupid; they’re going to know if a band is phoning in the gig.”
Annie says, if you’re tired of the same old wedding music mush, Nightshift Band are a great alternative. “There’s something about soul and funk that reaches out and grabs people. It’s universal. We find people really respond to our funky party songs, whether it’s Bruno Mars or Stevie Wonder. The music hits the beat and gets you on the dance floor.”
Debbi from Rumours band, is on board with the idea that live musicians are essential for quality music and a personalised atmosphere. “Live interaction is a huge point of difference from DJs or recorded music,” she says. “We talk and interact with the crowd to make them comfortable enough to lose their inhibitions.” Rumours band consider themselves more a ‘party band’ who happen to specialise in Weddings. “Yes, we can perform all those wedding dance floor classics, but we also throw in a bad-ass mix of party tunes from all eras to get your guests (young and old) out of their chairs. Time and time again, we’re told it’s our energy and ‘vibe’ on stage that spills out onto the audience.”
Debbi says mp3 players are a party killer: “It may be tempting to save the dollars and use your mp3 player, but then you have to spend hours creating a play list and what happens if no one is dancing? Who’s going to change the music style to something the greater masses will respond to? Who’ll encourage them to get out of their chairs and dance? Who’ll constantly regulate the sound levels to ensure the music is playing loud enough to entice guests to dance, but not so loud you’re hurting your guests’ eardrums?”
Black Suede Band - Wedding Entertainment Melbourne
0421 988 862
But what if you just can’t find a band who covers the exact repertoire you want? Well, perhaps a live band / DJ partnership is what you need. Melissa from Black Suede band says, “Our musicians offer something unique in that brides and grooms can actually ‘create’ their own band. Start with a DJ and vocalist, then add your favourite instruments such as guitar, saxophone, keyboard and percussion.”
“Want an acoustic duo?” says Melissa. “Or a nine-piece band with brass? No problem. Consider it done.” With a team of professional, experienced musicians at their disposal, Black Suede can provide you with your own DIY bespoke band, which your family and friends have most likely never seen but will love for the exclusivity of their collaboration. There’s nothing like a big, sexy line up of pro musos owning the stage. Energy and excitement are a given.
Black Suede Band pride ourselves on packing out your dance floor, and having your guests movin’ and groovin’ to our tunes! We have an extensive repertoire to suit mostly everybody’s taste.

Animata String Quartet - Wedding Band Melbourne
03 9498 4134
The Best String Quartet in Melbourne!
Music speaks to each of us differently – in fact, someone who ‘dances to the beat of their own drum’ is said to be someone who follows their heart, very appropriate when referring to music for your wedding.
Arranging music for your ceremony and reception can be a supremely personal choice, ranging from songs which may have special meaning to your relationship to those which carry a message you consider especially relevant to your day.
Many couples now choose to have different types of music at their weddings, opting for live music at the ceremony and pre-reception drinks, then a DJ later in the evening to get the dance floor moving once dinner and speeches are over.
Whether you decide to have live music or a DJ (or a mixture of both), the Animata String Quartet is happy to work with you to create a perfect musical mix for your big day. From Mozart to Coldplay, we play a range of music which is entertaining, surprising and most importantly, from the heart.

Tips for Choosing Wedding Bands
After you get engaged, you are swept right into the world of wedding planning with many to-dos, including choosing wedding bands, on your list. With so many wedding band styles to choose from, picking your perfect match can seem a bit daunting. Consider these helpful tips before starting your search.
Make sure that the band are professionals and music is their full-time job
Pro musicians know how to work the room and bring the best out of each other as well as their audience, they put there set together with such detail so the dance floor is full for the whole evening whilst taking you on a musical journey the best wedding bands make the crowd feel like they are a part of it.
Make sure the band play the music you like
it sounds so simple but you can easily get it wrong there is no point booking a jazz band if you really want to let loose kick off your heels and dance the night away. It is your day but think of your guests and who is most likely to be filling the floor for the whole evening, happy guests create the best weddings. Guests tend to remember the feeling and Atmosphere rather than the colour scheme.
Make sure they’ll take requests
When it comes to hiring a wedding DJ in the DC area, requests shouldn’t be a problem. But they become a bit more complicated if you hire a live band.
Unlike DJs, bands typically don’t have access to thousands of songs. They have a specific set list they can turn to, meaning your wedding song requests could go unanswered.
As you begin your search, try to come up with a variety of songs you could potentially have played at your wedding. That way, your bands can tell you whether they’re intimately experienced with these genres.
Sign a contract. Always.
Having a contract in place is a good idea for each and every single one of your wedding vendors, entertainment included.
Your entertainment contract should include the performer’s fee, arrival/finish times, and any other extras you want to include.
For example, some performers bring their own supplies, but others may wish to use existing speakers or cabling.
You also want to outline cancellation fees, while establishing a fail-safe in case someone in the band falls ill.
