twentysomethings at Matt & Tenille’s Wedding

twentysomethings are our most recently signed act and they’ve been making a seriously huge impression since we started working with them in early 2014. A 4-piece outfit consisting of lead vocals/keys, guitar, bass and drums, these guys have a flexibility and sound affiliated with a much larger lineup; owing majorly to front woman Tash’s masterful handle on both lead vocals and keys, and additional backing vocals from the rest of the band. Their dynamic, Like A Version style take on current Top 40s tunes and retro favourites conveys both an edginess and a fresh, exuberant energy totally unlike anything else on the Sydney covers scene; culminating in non-stop dance floor vibes. Subsequently, when Tenille and Matt approached us with the brief for their wedding reception – a good mix of classic and modern tracks that would keep their guests pumped and moving – we knew twentysomethings would be a perfect fit.

Having selected a range of  both new and vintage soul-funk style hits to be played on the night  (including Uptown Funk, Cosmic Girl, The Way You Make Me Feel, I Want You Back, Signed Sealed Delivered and Get Lucky), as well as a cheeky cameo of Living On A Prayer, Matt and Tenille managed to provide something for every demographic in attendance. The couple also chose the following songs for a few stand out moments in the night:

Bridal Waltz: Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran. Matt and Tenille put a personal spin on this current wedding darling by having Matt’s sister sing lead with the band. A very nice touch!

Bouquet Toss: Single Ladies – Beyonce. Everyone knows that this one was made for the bouquet toss!

Garter Toss: Like I Love You – Justin Timberlake. With its noughties-nostalgic r n’ b dance groove, this was a great track to finish the night on.

Congratulations Tenille and Matt! We had a blast working with you guys in the lead up to the big day, and we’re absolutely thrilled that you loved the band!

All the best,

Top Tips In Organising Your Wedding Music

Planning the music for your wedding doesn’t have to be a stressful – in fact, it can be one of the most enjoyable aspects of your wedding preparation! To help you out, the following are our Top Tips to help you get the perfect soundtrack for your wedding day:

1)   Show your personality! Your music selections can be a great way to personalise your wedding. For important moments like your processional, reception entrance, and cake cutting, select songs that hold special meaning to you and your partner.

2)   Get it in writing. To avoid any confusion or misunderstandings, make sure your band or DJ provides a contract for you that clearly states the performers start and finish times, the number of performers booked and the number of sets they are doing.

3)   What DON’T you want to hear? Informing your band or DJ of the songs you definitely don’t want played on the night can be just as important as letting them know the ones you do.

4)   Keep them in the loop. If you have a certain theme for your wedding that you want reflected in the entertainers outfits, or a particular song you really want performed, make sure to give the band/DJ plenty of notice so that they have time to prepare.

5)   Trust the professionals. While you should definitely let the band/DJ know what songs and artists you would like to hear on the night, don’t get too caught up in structuring the songs lists to a tee. If you’ve booked a professional group, they’ll have extensive experience at reading the crowd, and knowing what they want to hear, leaving you to just relax and enjoy the music!
