We also perform at high-profile corporate events, including the Australian Open and Spring Racing Carnival and weddings and private functions locally and interstate. In addition, we’re available to perform as an acoustic duo/trio, a four-piece band… and more!

After being accepted straight from high school into one of the country’s top Acting Schools, NIDA (National Institute of Dramatic Art), I worked successfully for several years as an Actor in Television, Theatre, Music Theatre (multiple Helpmann & Greenroom Award Nominee). Having achieved many of my dreams and goals at a relatively young age…
I realised that I had a special talent for facilitation, for being a vehicle for connection, creativity and growth in both myself and others……

Wedding Singers & Bands FAQ
Signing the register
This shouldn't take too long, but we recommend to have around three songs prepared just in case. It may take longer than you think if you are having photographs taken, too.
Regardless of the time of year 8:15 to 8:30pm seems to be the most popular time to do the first dance. The first dance is the first dance the couple do together as husband and wife, NOT the first dance of the evening as people will always be wanting to dance prior to this.
Many wedding planners will advise cutting the cake fairly early on in the evening, so shortly after evening guests arrive is usually the perfect time followed immediately by the first dance.
Obviously the amount of time for the DJing will be dependent on how coverage you've paid for. The normal, optimal length for a wedding reception is 4 hours (this includes the dinner portion). When you add in cocktail hour and the ceremony, there would be another 2 hours of music.
Are you asking yourself the question, "When should I go wedding dress shopping?" Ideally, you should start the process about 10 to 12 months before your wedding date. The best time to purchase your wedding gown is at least 8 months before your wedding!

Wedding Band Collective - Wedding Singers & Bands Melbourne
0418 110 845
Hi everyone, I'm Ben & I am the owner/director of Wedding Band Collective.
I am a professional musician, and since studying music at university, I have been playing in & managing bands, and now I DJ too!
A few years ago, when I was fresh out of university, I was lucky enough to join a couple of bands that took me overseas, touring and recording around Australia, NZ, and Europe. While on tour, I met the love of my life at a gig in Germany, and luckily for me, she decided to move to Australia. Since then, I have stopped touring and focused on playing and booking gigs in my hometown of Melbourne.
My wife and I got married a few years ago, and our wedding was truly amazing. The best part was having an incredible live band that had people on the dance floor the entire night. Since then, I have spent my efforts providing that same experience to brides & grooms on their big day. I love playing weddings with my bands and helping couples plan their big day, whether it is my band playing or one of the other great acts I look after.
Choosing music for your wedding can be a daunting task. We represent many great artists that have been vetted for their professionalism and excellent talent. Based on the style of your occasion, the type of music you desire, the date & location of your wedding, we will help you find the perfect wedding entertainment for your special day.

DJ HIRE MELBOURNE
Guide to choosing the best DJ for your wedding
Choosing a DJ for your special day is tricky and can feel overwhelming with so many options in the marketplace. There are so many vendors and operators who offer DJ and MC solutions, and there are many important factors that you’d likely add-in.
Choosing the best DJ to suit you
Our study showed that the three most important elements that guests remembered on the night were (apart from the dress and the couple) … drum roll… was the venue, the food and, last but not least, the entertainment.
Music sets the mood, creates an atmosphere, and is always on the mind of guests and their hosts. One guest recently commented at a wedding, “what would this night be like without music?”. So Choosing the best DJ in Melbourne is important.
Best Wedding MC Guaranteed
The question is always, who should lead a wedding – whilst the answer is the MC, there is a lot of pre-work that comes from working with an event planner, the entertainment and the venue to ensure that each moment in the event is planned out. Whilst there is always timing changes on the night of the event, there is a concept of goals. A good MC will guide the event in the right direction and even suggest possible changes to keep the energy and momentum flowing through. Choosing an MC that understands your goals for the event and is happy to take control is imperative to a great event like a wedding.
On the day, we’ll ensure everything runs smoothly so that you can focus on enjoying your day. We include our pre-wedding consultation, where we will give you specialised attention. We’ll optimise your running order to work for you. We want your special day to be the best it can be!
We’ll include many opportunities for you to personalise the music, and we love taking your guest’s requests. Our friendly DJs can also MC your wedding and offer a lot more than just introductions…
Our DJ/MC will perform seamless transitions between key moments, ensuring everything goes to your plan. We apply the perfect combination of enthusiasm and guest engagement that will lift the room's energy.

Luke’s talent and passion, and the combination he has with the other members, make for a truly enjoyable experience.
Lead Vocals: Russel McDonald is the ultimate frontman. Realising he could sing at the age of 13, Russell had an early interest in RnB before branching out into Rock and deciding he loved it. Also had experience in the industry as the lead singer of former Newcastle band Gravity 12 and helping establish local originals band Surmiza before moving on to other projects. Russell, an extremely capable guitarist, chooses to put down the axe and take centre stage in “The After Party” to deliver a dynamic and always engaging performance upfront. With his versatile range, charismatic style, and loveable personality, Russell will be sure to leave any crowd entertained and wanting more!
Bass Guitar/Vocals – Leighton Smith, has played music in some shape or form since he was six years old, starting in choirs and brass bands.

CUSTOMISED TO YOU
Calibre Entertainment consultants can make the seemingly impossible become a reality. All band and DJ services are fully customised to accommodate even the quirkiest of event parameters.
Your special event is not just one in a never-ending list of special events. As a boutique Melbourne company, we have a passion for providing the highest care for our Wedding and corporate entertainment clientele.
No weekend warriors or cheesy tribute bands here. We represent a small select group of talented, experienced and creative musicians; only the best for your special event.
Get the best of both worlds when you combine Live Music and a DJ. Not only does this save you money compared to booking two separate acts, but you have the incredible live music element added to your event supplied by an acoustic duo as well and the dance floor impact of the DJ later in the evening… so there is no need to decide between the two.

How Wedding Singers in Melbourne Can Make a Difference
It’s your special day, and you want everything to be just right. You have been planning for months and know the wedding theme you want, the flowers and decorations that are just right, the food and all the other arrangements are in place- but what about the music? Have you given it enough thought?
If not, it’s time to think about the tone you want to set by organising the music to accompany your event. Having a perfect wedding is about having every aspect in place- including the music. The music you have will dictate the mood for the event and make it even more personal. Many wedding receptions end up lack-lustre only because not enough attention was paid to the music.
Making the right Choice
Don’t make the mistake of underestimating the power that music can create. We know you are busy, and the best way to handle this is to contact the Entertainment Bureau for our full listing of Wedding Singers in Melbourne. We are the experts in this field, and the bands and singers we have listed are highly sought-after. The only way to ensure you have the singers you want at your wedding is to contact us well in advance. This way, we can help guide you on getting the professional singer that suits both you and your wedding guests.
