Our talented musicians perform a unique show consisting of a fresh and exciting repertoire across all ages, with tailored mashups and medleys that will make your wedding day one that your guests will be sure to remember. Our timeless set list of contemporary songs mixed with classic anthems will keep your guests dancing and singing along all evening, in celebration of your special day.
Booking a wedding reception band for your evening entertainment is a great way of ensuring your guests party in style and we provide a show that stands out.
Our experience and professional approach will make everything about booking a band for your wedding reception straight forward, allowing you to concentrate on other preparations for your big day. As well as being one of the Australia’s top event entertainment and wedding bands, The High Rollers Big Band can provide technical expertise with a dedicated sound engineer on hand throughout your wedding day to ensure that all sound and lighting runs smoothly. We also offer complimentary DJ style playlists via iPod which have been selected to warm up crowds for the live band and to maintain the atmosphere between and after the live sets.
You are of course welcome to also provide your own playlists if there are particular eras/genres that you would like to hear, which we can hand over to our dedicated sound engineer to control them remotely, saving you the hassle.
Wedding Services, Here’s what we do:
There are many options if you are interested in having live music for your wedding and ceremony, for example during the processional and signing could be accompanied by an acoustic duo or string quartet. Another option is having a quartet playing for your guests whilst they arrive before and is definitely a unique touch for the perfect wedding ceremony.
For your guests before you arrive:
A smaller selection of the musicians can play traditional jazz and swing or acoustic music in the background to keep the room entertained. This is a really important way to set the tone for the night, without overdoing it – perfect music for chatting and sipping cocktails!
In this instance the band would break down into a smaller group as a quintet or quartet and play some cool chilled out tunes as your guests arrive and keep the room buzzing as your family and friends zip their wine and cocktails.
As you Enter
As the newlyweds make their entrance, the band pumps it up a bit with pre select tunes as you and the bridal party enter the reception.. This is normally 20 second snippets of your favourite tunes that are typically associated closely with that particular bridal party member, for example as the younger bridal party members enter, why not play some Uptown Funk, Let’s Get Loud, Moves Like Jagger, 24K Magic, Let’s Groove Tonight and more, and then whilst parents are announced, why not a little bit of Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin, Sway, or L-O-V-E, or That’s Life.
We can offer our many years of experience to help you tailor the perfect nightlong experience for you and your guests. We will work with you and your other suppliers to ensure your timings for dinner and formalities are perfected to optimize time on the dance floor.
Discuss your first dance options with us – we can perform your dream song, or if you want to choreograph a masterpiece to the original recording we can help facilitate the timings then move into live dance music straight after.
Then comes the dance floor… Where the High Rollers Big Band have earned their fantastic reputation! The High Rollers will have that floor packed with high energy party tunes and audience participation – we love what we do so as to ensure you have the best party of your life.
As you leave the band can lead part of the evening for you with some specially selected tunes and really some of the nicer touches is we perform have some great singalong tunes as you prepare to leave and make your way to the awaiting limousines, imagine all your guests singing along to tunes like Better Be Home Soon, Lean on Me, Stand By Me and many more.

Do I need a DJ?
As a complimentary service for you, we always bring background music and/or an iPod so that the room is still filled with ambience in between the brackets the band is not playing. If you like, you can bring your own iPod for these breaks, or just leave it up to us if you prefer – we always carry a selection of appropriate background tunes. If you are looking for specific songs to be played at these times, we strongly recommend bringing an iPod, which we will happily manage for you. Alternatively, just leave it up to us and we take care of everything end to end.
How long does the Band play for?
Generally speaking, the typical call is for a 5 hour event from the time the guests arrive, however if something in addition is required, we can accommodate. This normally consists of cocktail music, entrance music and typically 3 x 45 minute brackets throughout the night to be spread out as required. We can even take care of the farewell, garter and bouquet throw for you if desired. With speeches and other formalities taking placing, this is normally perfect for weddings. If you do have any specific ideas and thoughts, we are absolutely flexible and happy to work with you to accommodate your vision.
Can I choose what music we’d like played?
Yes of course, but also from a band perspective having performed at 100’s of weddings, we do recommend to compromise a little. Give the band some room to decide what is right for that moment. More often that, the band may decide to change direction mid set really depending on what is resonating with the crowd at that moment. When we do capture these moments, they do turn out to be the highlights of the party. As part of our service, we do go through the run sheet of the wedding prior to your big day with yourselves and go through various options for the evening.
