For song requests that are not on our songlist...

If there is a song that you would absolutely love to have us play for you live for one of your special moments but it's not currently on our songlist, please let us know! We always try to accommodate requests as much as possible.

There are some wedding bands that will say 'yes' to any and every request (but then won't necessarily do the song justice). We don't guarantee any song until we have had a chance to try it out because we prefer to keep a high quality standard and be honest with our couples about what we think will sound best.

So please let us know what your dream song is so that we can (hopefully) make it happen! At the very least we can play any song you'd like at any time via mp3.

If you're wanting more control over what gets played on the DJ side of things...

Please let us know if there are any songs that you DEFINITELY want played (or definitely DON'T want played).

If you would like to create your own playlist, you are of course welcome to. Please send us the link to your playlist on Spotify, making sure to set it to 'public' so that we can access it, and please specify when exactly you'd like to have it played (i.e. during breaks, during dancing, etc.).

*Special note: It has become a tradition (especially in QLD) for all of the men on the dancefloor to de-pants themselves when they hear the song ‘Eagle Rock’. This song will not be coming up on our usual playlist, but we will play it if it is directly requested unless you or the venue instructs us beforehand not to. (Some venues already have a ‘No Eagle Rock’ policy in place to protect the innocence of their younger female employees.)
