SONG & PLAYLIST SELECTION

Your musician will select the songs for their live sets throughout the day but if you are wanting specific songs to be played for a few special moments throughout the day you are welcome to. If you run out of time or can't be fussed we are happy to choose for you so there is no pressure!

​Moments that couples usually like to choose songs for (with some suggestions):

Ceremony:

  • Processional​ (Aisle Entrance)

  • Signing (usually more than one is best)

  • Recessional (Aisle Exit - something upbeat and happy as everyone will be cheering, sometimes an mp3 works well here like "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" by Queen, "You Make My Dreams" by Hall & Oates, "Home" by Edward Sharpe)
     

Reception:​

  • Bridal Party Entrance (an upbeat mp3, like "Signed Sealed Delivered" by Stevie Wonder, "Crazy In Love" by Beyonce, "Burning Love" by Elvis, "Happy" by Pharrel, The Way You Do the Things You Do" by The Temptations, "Love You For A Long Time" by Maggie, Rogers, "Shut Up and Dance" by Walk the Moon, etc.

  • Cake Cutting (mp3)

  • First Dance

  • Parents Dance

  • Last Song (mp3) usually a singalong is great like "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen, "Living on a Prayer" by Bon Jovi, "We Found Love" by Rihanna, "Cuz I Love You" by Lizzo, etc.

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

If there is a song that you would absolutely love to have your artist play for you live for one of your special moments but it's not currently on their song list, please let us know as soon as possible!

 

Musicians will always try to accommodate requests as much as possible however we do charge an additional fee for this service to compensate the artist for their time as it often takes several hours to learn a new song and prepare it to be performed live.

We don't guarantee any song until the artist has 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 your artist 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.)
