Something Borrowed Wedding & Event Entertainment

0424 517 411

Wedding Ceremony & Reception Entertainment

We set the scene early by playing a few choice songs as guests arrive for the ceremony. Then,… the moment has arrived. You walk down the aisle to our beautiful arrangement of your song. Whatever that may be. It’s your choice. We then play during the signing of the registry and as you leave the altar as Mr & Mrs.

We are extremely flexible and will work with you to make your day perfect. The reception is generally 4 x 45-minute sets. In 90% of cases, we play 2 x acoustic sets while guests are eating entrees and mains, then we kick it into top gear with the full band sound once all the formalities are out the way.

If you are providing canapés for your guests prior to the official reception, we can certainly play the first acoustic set at that time if you would prefer. Again, the choice is yours. The bottom line –  it is your day! There is no right or wrong way to run it. Your way IS the right way. You just tell us exactly what you want, and we are good to go.

What makes us different?

  • We can learn any song you would like to walk down the aisle to. Not on our list? No problem!
  • We have the flexibility to play both acoustic ceremonies and full band sound receptions. A one-stop-shop!
  • We have been performing together for over a decade. We know what songs to play and when to play them.
  • We have the equipment to play Indoor or Outdoor ceremonies. No power, no problem!
  • We can play anything from small intimate functions to events with hundreds of people.
  • We understand it is YOUR day. We fit around the events of the evening, not the other way around.

Something Borrowed offers exceptional music entertainment for weddings, functions and special events throughout Melbourne and surrounding areas. On occasion, we also provide entertainment to other states and regularly perform in Tasmania, Sydney, QLD and Adelaide.

Having performed together for over 10 years, Adam and Brendan have a wealth of experience that helps to ensure everything runs perfectly on the day for you.

Something Borrowed offers a broad range of musical styles so whether it’s a corporate function, a wedding reception or a roaring party, they have the skills, equipment and repertoire to make the event a massive hit.

Playing a variety of acoustic-only sets, through to full band sounding sets, you get the right music at the right time.

The Qualifications

Unlike other professions, there are no formal qualifications needed to be a Master of Ceremonies. For some, it comes naturally (like myself), and for others, some institutions do provide short courses and teach very handy skills on how to make yourself stand out from the crowd as an MC.

In my case, my qualifications and experience outlined on my TV, Radio and Voice Over Artist page have helped with my MC skills and abilities. They have allowed me to continue building confidence and knowledge on how to be even better each time I have the honour and privilege of hosting a special event – whether it be a wedding, birthday party, corporate function, sports presentation, school valedictory dinner, or as a keynote speaker. 

The Reason I Do It

The more I became comfortable being around people, the more natural I felt as a communicator and all-round speaker. And finding out how rewarding being a Master of Ceremonies can also be swayed me to working on my own craft to become someone worthy of the title.

As a guest at an event, often I will pay great attention to detail to the MC for that event, and embrace whatever I learned from what they did (or in some cases didn’t do) to ensure I deliver on any and all promises I make to my clients when I assume the position and hold that microphone.

The Experience

  • Entertainment Assistant at Crown Casino Melbourne 2013-2015
  • DJ/MC for Melbourne Entertainment Company 2017-2018
  • School Captain for both Euston Public School and Robinvale Secondary College 2000 and 2006
  • Hosted multiple weddings and birthday parties since 2013
  • Hosted dinner dances for Melbourne 50s/60s/70s tribute band Memory Lane 2013-2014
  • Guest speaker for the Robinvale College Year 12 Valedictory Dinner 2011
  • Hosted Giovanna’s Gift charity evening at the Euston Club and Resort 2014
  • Part of The Beagles tribute band who of the Mildura Pink Ball charity event 2013-2014

Why Choose Me?

I don’t come with the hefty price tag that celebrities command. Plus, I bring all of my dedication, passion and emotional investment into the role, no matter the occasion! And best of all, I ensure that my clients (e.g. bride and groom, birthday boy/girl) are the stars, not me – I’m just honoured and privileged to support them!

Get in touch with me and find out how I can help you make your event that extra bit special with a quote to suit.

About Ben Fox…

Since I was young, my passion has always been music. My parents gave me my first guitar at the age of 14, and from there, I explored my Dad’s cd collection learning Hendrix and Led Zeppelin songs. I remember, much to my neighbours’ dismay, spending most of my free time as a kid rocking out in my bedroom to my favourite guitar solos. I’m surprised I still have heard, I used to turn my amp up near full and play for hours.

After high school, I went on to complete a Bachelor in music at my local TAFE, where I found my love for live performance, recording and audio engineering. After graduating from TAFE, I decided a change of scenery was needed, so I packed my things and moved from Cairns to Sydney and completed a Bachelor in Jazz Performance at the International Conservatorium of Music (AICM). I managed to stumble my way into a few amazing performance opportunities which led me to the wonderful world of weddings and corporate events.

I couldn’t think of a better career, and I am thankful to everyone that takes the time to listen.

+61 407 045 160

The Bombastics are a multi-award winning Melbourne band. We’re a collective of Melbourne’s finest musicians, meaning you get choice, flexibility and above all, reliability. Choose The Bombastics, and you know the music is in safe hands.

Finding the right band for your wedding or corporate event can be a painful process. The internet is flooded with good and not-so-good options. Save yourself hours of planning time by getting in touch with The Bombastics today. Discover our exceptional service, attention to detail and best of all, our great sound.

THE BOMBASTICS WEDDING BAND

At The Bombastics, a Melbourne wedding band, we pride ourselves on making every bride and groom’s reception the dream party they’ve always imagined. If you’ve spent hours scrolling the internet looking at all the wedding music on offer you’re probably starting to feel a little overwhelmed. Look no further.

As Melbourne’s leading wedding band, couples continue to choose The Bombastics to provide live music like no other. However, being great wedding music performers is only part of the reason. We offer very competitive prices and exceptional service that you won’t get from other Melbourne wedding bands.

During the wedding reception, we offer a range of music services including:

  • Background acoustic songs or background jazz early in the reception
  • Party songs from a range of genres including rock, pop, top 40,  soul and disco for later in the reception
  • A live band performance of your requested bridal dance
  • Perfectly balanced PA system so that it’s loud enough on the dance floor, but guests at tables can still chat
  • Other additional features like dance floor lighting and a microphone for the MC.

PERFECT CEREMONIES HAVE LIVE MUSIC

Live music at the ceremony is the most under-considered part of planning a wedding. It transforms the most touching moments of the day from special, to beautiful beyond words. Subtle, perfectly performed songs and pieces are how The Bombastics musicians turn your day into something better than you ever imagined. Explore the options below, listen to our samples and get in touch for a quote. We have excellent offers when you combine our reception band with ceremony music. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at the price.

Live Music. The Ceremony Saviour.

Picture the bride and her bridesmaids walking down the aisle. Imagine no music playing during that moment… Awkward! Now imagine hearing beautiful music, the original recording of a song chosen by the bride and groom… then it finishes… And the bride is halfway to the altar. Awkward again! Live music fixes this disaster. After hundreds of ceremonies, we know the value of an extended intro, an extra chorus, or the ever-useful interlude. Our live performances have saved many brides and their guests from a less-than-perfect moment. Don’t settle for less-than-perfect. Choose perfect. Choose The Bombastics for your wedding ceremony.

Choosing which family member or friend to MC your wedding can be a topic of debate amongst couples. Will that chosen person be too nervous? Will they take it seriously? Will they be able to make people laugh? Will they be prepared? Will they be ok with not drinking much? Will they be happy to help out rather than relax at our wedding?

These are all questions couples ask themselves when choosing someone to MC the wedding. Having an open and frank conversation with the person you’d like is probably the best place to start. MCing a wedding is not a simple task for someone that hasn’t done it before. The MC sets the tone for the night, making people feel relaxed, getting them excited and having a laugh. But on top of this, it’s the role of the MC to ensure the coordination between the venue manager, band, photographer, videographer and any other suppliers. If the MC announces the father/daughter dance and the photographer is having a meal in another room – it’s a regretable fault. Or the MC loses track of time and forgets to bring guests into the main room on time – the chef will be giving them the hard word.

The Bombastics take care of all of these potential mishaps and disasters by offering a range of affordable MC services. Our experienced MCs can address your guests in a style that suits you and ensure every aspect of the evening runs smoothly and on time. You’ll get a perfect reception, as suppliers will work to their optimum with a confident leader running the night.

  2. If you are after a high energy party and you want your guests to dance the night away, the Cedar Duo can add backing tracks with synths, horns, percussion and drums to give you the sound and feel of a full band. 
  3. The Cedar DJ can take over and fill the dance floor by spinning all your favourite party tunes.

Cedar Trio

The Cedar Trio is also perfect for small to medium weddings.  Create your own personal sound by adding another instrument to the Cedar Duo such as bass, keyboards, saxophone or percussion. An extra musician thickens up the sound and allows for more improvisation.  The Cedar Trio can fill the dance floor, creating an awesome party environment by adding backing tracks with synths, horns, percussion and drums to give you the sound and feel of a full band. 

Cedar Band

The Cedar Band has a minimum of four musicians consisting of female and male vocals, bass guitar, guitar and drums. The live drums definitely add that extra zest. The band is suitable for small or large weddings so long as there is sufficient stage space.  Additional musicians can be added to the four-piece band to thicken up the sound. You have the choice of keyboards, horn section, percussionist, backing vocalists all the way up to a ten-piece band. The more, the merrier!

Cedar DJ

Cedar is very handy on the decks and can incorporate a real DJ into your wedding.  By booking the Cedar DJ, you can dance the night away to the original recordings of your favourite songs. You tell us what type of music you like, and we’ll play it!  You can choose to have a DJ for the whole wedding, or you can combine the DJ with live musicians to spruce up the entertainment. 

DJ with Vocalist and/or Saxophonist​

DJ with the addition of a vocalist singing the melodies live and a saxophonist playing some awesome improvised solos over the tracks. 

DJ with Acoustic Duo

There is the option of starting off the function with the Cedar Acoustic Duo playing cool background tunes and then lifting the tempo and finishing off the night with a DJ playing all your favourite party tunes.​

BELLY DANCE WEDDING ENTERTAINMENT TO SUIT ALL CULTURAL BACKGROUNDS

Are you looking for something special to entertain your guests for your wedding? A Bellydancer is simply a ‘party starter’. She acts as a way to mark the place in the evening where your guests are invited up onto the dancefloor.

Weddings are joyous occasions, however, guests sometimes need entertainment whilst the Bridal party are busy. A typical wedding show consists of a solo floor show to entertain the guests. This can be with isis wings (think big gold butterfly wings), or even a drum solo or sword balancing act. The Bellydancer then asks the Bride and Groom onto the dancefloor to dance with them, and at this point, the guests are also invited up. A Bellydancer aims to have the floor packed with dancing guests by the end of her set and leave you all dancing the night away.

Music can obviously be tailored to suit a particular cultural background, and costumes can be worn that are fully covered.

Director Josie Palermo has had over 2 decades of local and international experience in middle eastern dance and is proud to work with the best dancers and musicians in Melbourne.​ Josie has conducted classes and various short term workshops in Arabic dance in Melbourne and Regional Victoria for many years. She has been performing Arabic dance (both Cabaret and folk) for 10 years. Her credits include television appearances; Sale of the Century (GTV 9), Red Light in Full Flight (SBS), Denise Show (7 networks) and Ocean Girl (Jonathon Shift Productions), Jimmy Christo music video, and major festivals and events including the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, Moomba, Melbourne Fringe and Melbourne Arts Festival and the Lebanese Festival. Josie is a very busy and popular performer, performing regularly in Melbourne’s finest restaurants, hotels and reception centres.

Josie has conducted courses for people at all levels of Middle Eastern Dance, Seventh Veil, Hawthorn and Hip to Hip Dance Studio, Richmond. Josie also conducts speciality workshops for advanced students featuring sword and veil work, as well as holding courses and workshops for intellectually disabled clients, Helping Hand Association, Coburg.

All our dancers are internationally trained and have worked in 100s of shows wowing audiences and providing the ultimate in family entertainment. We also collaborate with talented world music band Jadida and the best drummers and only dabke group in Melbourne, The Lebanese Dancers for Peace with Audi Younes Platinum events and Productions. 

As part of its mission to create high quality and culturally authentic middle eastern performance experiences for a range of audiences and clients, Melbourne Bellydance is also proud to offer classes and workshops through our school, Hip to Hip. You can also follow Hip to Hip on Facebook.

Middle Eastern dance is an art form that evokes the cultural context within which it was developed. It is fundamentally linked to the emotional expectations of the audience that views it – the dancer becomes a vessel for the expression of emotions that are often suppressed, inaccessible and transient. For a dancer like myself, who is Australian born of Italian immigrants, to learn the dance is to learn the culture, and to interpret that through my own ethnicity as best as I can. What emerges is a style that I am still developing that brings what I know to what I know about Middle Eastern dance. I embellish the movements to embrace a western theatrical style, which leans towards Danse Orientale. The music I use ranges from traditional Arabic songs to the new pop fads sweeping Lebanon today. My movements range from traditional taqsuim to the painful straining of a beautiful nay to aggressive African pelvic movements to the beat of a darbuka.

The Brentwood siblings gained viral notoriety with their crowd-pleasing acoustic take on the ‘Deadpool Rap’, catching the eye of star Ryan Reynolds and ultimately featuring on ‘Deadpool Reloaded’, the soundtrack for the motion picture.

BRENTWOOD went on to impress the Australian and New Zealand public after their first appearance on 2016’s ‘The X Factor Australia’. As the first act to receive a standing ovation, they set the bar high for the competition. The proudly ginger siblings didn’t disappoint – under the wing of mentor Iggy Azalea, they won over fans week after week, ultimately finishing in the Top 7.

Their latest musical journey sees BRENTWOOD extend themselves beyond their acoustic roots and explore a fuller pop sound, with their self-titled EP. The siblings traverse love, loss, escapism and anxiety with their signature harmonies and a new pop-driven direction.

How long should a band play at a wedding reception?

Weddings and music go so well together. Whether it is a string band playing during your vows, or a rock band whiling the night away, music is great for matrimonial occasions. But, when you plan to book a band, you need to work out how long you need them for.

Do you want the band to be the main entertainment? How long will they take to set up? Can the same band play at both your ceremony and your reception?

You’re bound to have a number of questions about the logistics of your wedding night, especially when it comes to the wedding entertainment. How long does the band play for? When will they set up? When does the band start? These are all familiar questions, and unless you’re working with a reliable wedding planner, you may be looking for some advice.

When does the wedding band play?

If you’re looking at a traditional wedding band set up, then you’re looking at a minimum of four musicians. This will include drum kit, keys, guitar, bass with one or more of those doubling up as a singer. For that size, you would assume it’s too large to perform during the ceremony or as background music during reception drinks and dinner. So your wedding band is likely to be the ones getting you on the dance floor for a boogie. In my experience, you are likely to expect an earlier hour’s set dancing after dinner but before dessert. And then your wedding band can play anything from an hour to two hours for a final dancing set to finish the night.

If you have a good wedding band, then you will be offered a smaller setups during the day. With these smaller ensembles like a solo, duo or trio they can perform at the ceremony, reception and throughout dinner. In my experience, a wedding band offering that service makes your life a whole lot easier rather than booking different musicians for different parts of the day. If you have the extra solo, duo and trio option then you’re looking at twenty minutes during the ceremony, 45 minutes to an hour for the reception and another 45 minutes during dinner.

What to expect from your wedding band?

As a wedding couple, you should expect your wedding band to know the sort of music you like. And with that knowledge cater their sets throughout the day to your musical tastes. If you like a large range of music, then you should expect your wedding band to mix it up during the day. Aside from your musical tastes, your guests are likely to have a wide range of ages. So you should expect your wedding band to factor this into the sort of music they perform. I would also say that if your wedding band is experienced, then they should be setting up the energy throughout the day. Earlier on you would want your band performing more chilled numbers slightly before building towards the up-tempo dance sets.

If you are looking for a wedding band or smaller musical setups like solo, duo or trio feel free to get in touch. I’d be happy to chat with you about anything you need to know.

What Time Should The Band Start?

Even with the most meticulous of planning, weddings inevitably run later than planned, speeches can run over amongst all kinds of other unexpected hiccups. That’s nothing to be worried about as there’s still plenty of time to get the party going. Although you may be eager to get the band up as soon as possible, we find it’s good to start at around 8/9 pm, depending on how long your band is booked to play for.

After many years of experience, we often observe that guests head to the bar or outside for some fresh air after the wedding breakfast. After sitting down for 2-3 hours having eaten a lot of food, coupled with a smorgasbord of drinks, it makes sense that guests won’t be making a beeline for the dance floor.

Of course, everyone will gather for the first dance, but it’s a similar story once this has concluded so the later, the better has always been our motto. However, every wedding day is different, and our dedicate agents are here to help you organise the perfect schedule for your reception, so you get the most out of your band.

How long does a wedding play for?

We find 2 sets usually works the best, often 2 x 45 minutes or 2 x 60 minutes depending on what packages the band offers. You may even find you prefer to split your sets up into 3 x 40 minutes to spread it out over the evening. However, some bands will offer additional seats for an extra fee, and this can either be another live set (3 x 60 minutes or 3 x 45 minutes) or an acoustic warm upset. An acoustic set can consist of the whole band performing or a trio/duo depending on their acoustic repertoire.

If your venue has the option of staying open until 1 is, then you may find that an additional set is really worth investing in. Staying later often incurs an additional cost and may even result in the band requiring accommodation depending on the location of your wedding.

However, most bands offer a DJ service or an add on DJ which would be a more cost-effective way of keeping the party soaring into the late hours. Every wedding is different so, whatever your plans, the band will do their absolute best to work around you and your guests.

How many songs fit into a set?

A question that is frequently asked by our clients is ‘how many songs can be played in a set?’. Although there is no definitive answer to this, we have been able to work out a rough number in order to help our clients pick enough favourites for the band to include on the night. If a song is roughly 3-4 minutes long, then you’d be looking at 15-20 songs per-hourly set. If your band is performing 2 x 45-minute sets, then it would be roughly 10-15 songs per set.

Of course, if your wedding is really shaking the walls and the band are in the zone, then you may find they perform for slightly longer with extended solos for each member for the band on certain songs. If your guests keep the dance floor full and the drinks flowing then anything could happen – you may even get an encore if you’re lucky!

Can we choose the setlist?

You’ll no doubt choose your band based on their repertoire, and so you’re bound to have a number of requests which is absolutely fine. The only thing we try to discourage politely is when brides (and grooms) email through the exact setlist. This makes it very difficult for the band who would usually choose their set based on a number of factors. When a band puts a setlist together, they’ll consider their audience, which songs go well together, which are nice to start with and which really end the night well. A setlist is something that needs careful consideration which is why it’s nearly always best to leave it up to the band.

Do we need to feed the band?

It’s something that’s queried time and time again, and the simple answer is ‘Yes please’. Although it may seem that your band is only playing for a couple of hours, with travel and time spent hanging around at the venue, their day will almost always be between 10-12 hours long, and so they need to have a proper meal to keep energy levels up. Having played a few hundred weddings myself in my time, I can honestly say that a well-fed band is a happy band and that will come across when they’re up on stage performing.

Do we need a stage and how big should the stage be?

A stage isn’t essential, and function bands are used to playing on the floor, so don’t worry too much about it. It’s an added expense that can be avoided, but if budget isn’t an issue, then a stage is always a nice touch and will really add to that live gig atmosphere.

You should always speak to your band about the stage size, but as a guide, we’d recommend about 1-meter width for each band member so a 4-piece band would require at least 4 x 3 meters to give them sufficient space.

Why are the prices quoted higher than the website?

I’m sure you’ve spent many hours trawling through the hundreds of wedding bands on the net and after submitting your first few enquiries have found that prices quoted are often higher than the advertised fees. The main reason for this is that bands will advertise their base rate but may charge more when travelling. First of all, there are fuel costs, but then they also need to consider the extra time spent travelling and whether the accommodation will be required.

Our venue has a sound limiter, can the band still play?

Sound limiters are the bane of the musicians’ existence, but where there’s a will, there’s a way. In case you’re not familiar with sound limiters, they’re trip switches installed at venues that turn the power off when the volume reaches a certain level. Some people like to refer to these as ‘Fun limiters’, and I am akin to agree.

It all depends on how low your sound limiter is set but most bands are able to deal with sound limiters by either using soft drum sticks or electronic drums. It does mean the volume will be lower than you’re used to so always make enquiries with your venue before booking up.

What time should they finish?

Work out if your chosen venue has any noise restrictions. These could be all-day or only start at a certain time. Some places even have a sound limiter, which means power is cut if the noise goes over a certain volume. It would be awful to book a big rock band, only to discover that you can’t play loud music.

How long will a live band play for?

Work out what time you have your venue until and work backwards. You can’t arrange for the band to play their last song at five minutes to midnight if you are expected to all be gone by the hour; the band will need time to pack up and leave. However, the band announcing the last dance is a great way to tell your guests it’s time to go subtly.

If you have a strict finishing time by your venue, pass this information on to the band. They will be able to tell you how long they will need to pack up so that you can be safely out in time.

How much will it cost?

Because most bands are used to playing for two hours over three or four hours, you are unlikely to get a discount if you want them for less time. Factor in their setting up and travel times and you can see why they may refuse to play for less. Most bands and musicians will book an entire day for one wedding.

However, certain bands playing specific musical styles might offer a shorter performance for a reduced price. For example, steel bands will commonly offer two 40-minute sets of live music within a two-hour period; some other musicians may be willing to do something similar.

How long do other musicians play for?

We represent a variety of popular wedding musicians on our website for hire, and they all offer slightly different packages, so we do advise getting in touch directly to discuss in further detail if you’re interested in a particular act.

However, below is a rough guideline on how long acoustic acts, pianists, harpists and string musicians perform for and the most popular wedding packages they offer.

Acoustic Acts

Acoustic guitarists, duos, trios and beyond tend to offer 2 x 45 or 2 x 60-minute sets (with the option of splitting the latter up into 3 x 40-minute sets). They typically arrive an hour prior to the performance, as they don’t take as long to set up (roughly 20-30 minutes), and will perform their live sets over a set time period, i.e. 2 x 45-minute sets over a 2 hour time period or 3 x 40-minute sets over a 3 hour time period.

However, if you want them to perform a set during the drinks reception and then a set after the wedding breakfast, you may find that the price increases. This is because they will be on-site for longer and will need to increase this time period in order to accommodate your schedule, i.e. 2 x 45-minute sets over a 5 hour time period.

Pianists, Harpists & other Solo Musicians

Our wedding soloists offer similar packages to both our acoustic acts and our string ensembles. Harpists and pianists are ideal for wedding ceremonies and will often put forward packages that include some, if not all, of the following; Pre-Ceremony performance (20-30 minutes), Ceremony (roughly an hour) and Drinks Reception or Wedding Breakfast (2 x 45-minute sets over a 2 hour time period).

Also, you’ll also find that some musicians will even offer a full day package to cover the entire wedding. This would consist of the following; Pre-Ceremony performance, Ceremony performance, Drinks Reception, Wedding Breakfast, Evening Reception + DJ service until midnight.

String Ensembles

Bands For Hire has a superb selection of wedding string quartets and string musicians for hire. Our string ensembles and musicians tend to offer their time per hour, so you’ll find that most quotes include pricing for a 1 hour, 2 hours and 3-hour booking as standard. To clarify, this does not include arrival time and set up, and we ask all musicians to arrive an hour prior to the performance.

For a 1-2 hour booking, most musicians will typically play straight through, but for longer periods of time, they will require rest breaks (10-15 minutes at most). For bookings much longer than 3 hours, musicians will require a lunch break (30-40 minutes), so please do discuss this further prior to booking to understand their requirements.

Weddings can run later or earlier than expected, so be prepared for potential changes in schedule. Taking into consideration the setup, breakdown, and performance time will give you the best idea of how much time needs to be allotted for the band. Coordinate with your entertainment group to make sure everything is set for your wedding day!
