Frank the Wedding Singer
"One of the Top Wedding, Function Singers in Melbourne"
Solo Act with Full Band Sound.
Hello there, and thanks for considering me to be a part of your special day.
I've been very lucky to have sung at many weddings. The wonderful thing is that each one is so unique - so many different ways to organise a wedding - from its size to its location - from the overall atmosphere (formal, casual, in-between), to music choices (have a wedding singer or multiple wedding singers?, or hire a cover band? … or No Band?), outfits, cars and, and, and...
There is no right or wrong as it's all about what you want.
My specialty is music, and I perform at weddings (reception and ceremony) as a solo act, using top quality backing music, giving a full band sound at a very different price-point to a wedding band.
As a professional Wedding and Function singer, I've noticed some things that often reappear at Weddings and Functions as they work well - I've written about them below for the three most common types of wedding bookings I get - I hope they are of some help to you …
Best Regards, Frank.
At Your Wedding Ceremony…
- As your guests arrive, I sing for about 15 minutes before the bride's arrival, setting the atmosphere - slower classics from the Evergreens & Jazz Standards section of my songlist.
- As you walk down the aisle - I can sing the song of your choice for this magic moment. I've sung everything from Etta James magnificent 'At Last' to Piaf's 'La Vie En Rose' to Nat King Cole's 'L-O-V-E'- no doubt you have ideas too 🙂 Some folks prefer a prerecorded song - I can take care of that and play it for you.
- The signing of the register - choose 2 or 3 songs from my song-list, or I can choose some appropriate ones.
- And finally, when you leave as a married couple, it's time for joyous songs of celebration - upbeat, happy - can be anything you want. Love Is In The Air is often chosen, and there are many more also.
Red Soda - Wedding Singers & Bands Melbourne
(02) 8006 2245
Who is Red Soda Band?
Starting as a small, tight-knit group of professional musicians – we've built a solid rep as one of the best live wedding bands in Sydney.
Since our successful start, we expanded from where we met at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. We connected and played with other accomplished, local musicians across Australia and in the US, Canada, and the UK. We’re gaining cred for our fun and flawless performances no matter where we perform.
We've even performed with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Harry Connick Jnr, Justin Timberlake, Kylie Minogue, Delta Goodrem, Michael Bublé, Ian Moss (Cold Chisel), Sir Paul McCartney, Daft Punk and Hugh Jackman.
Looking for a Sydney wedding band who'll make you hot under the collar from the moment you walk down the aisle to the last dance anthem of the night?
You're in the right place.
You want ceremony music that'll make you fall in love again. And you want reception music that'll make your guests throw their arms around each other – and in the air as they party the night away on the dance floor. So that's what we do. We help you choose the right songs to create the perfect live music for your wedding day – from start to finish.
We make your live music the easiest.
the thing to plan for your wedding
Putting together a wedding is stressful, so we do everything to take the fuss out of booking your live band.
We live and breathe wedding music and have experienced almost every scenario, so we know how to plan for them. There's no need to worry if you've never hired a live wedding band before – we'll take care of you.
We'll even liaise with your planners, venues, and AV companies on your behalf so you can focus on the other important details.
Not your average Sydney wedding band
Any wedding band can play good music. But not every band has what it takes to perform heart-thumping songs that sweep you off your feet, make you weak at the knees, and have you dancing all night long. Every. Single. Time.
Our couples will tell you – we know what it takes.
Starting as students at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, we started playing locally. And we just clicked. It was like we were made to perform together.
Our audiences adored our chemistry on stage. Word spread, and we began to get requests to play at events, weddings and festivals in the Hunter Valley, Southern Highlands, Blue Mountains – across Australia and then across the globe.
We go together like champagne and bubbles.
You can't fake that kind of chemistry. Unlike other bands who hire casual musicians to fill the gaps, you get the infectious energy you need because we're close friends and know each other like family.
We're not strangers meeting for the first time at your wedding – we've been performing together for years, and you can tell by the connections we form and the fun we have with you when we play.
We go together like champagne and bubbles with music that moves you – first to tears at the ceremony, then as you tear it up on the dancefloor. Being a part of your wedding day is what we love most.
FAQs About Wedding Singers & Bands
With each song averaging about 4 minutes, you can safely assume there will be about 7 to 10 songs played in one set.
Your wedding band will typically arrive at around 5:30-6:00pm, ready to set up their equipment as soon as the meal and speeches are over. You may find it a good idea to usher guests into the bar area whilst the function room is turned around for the evening and the band set up.
The exact amount of time the band plays will vary, but it's typically between 3-4 hours. CTO Bands play for 4 hours total as a ceremony and reception band package, with overtime prorated. In other cases, a wedding band will only play for 2 hours during the reception or they may require a 30 minute break.
If you want custom bands, figure on the process taking at least six to eight weeks, though it could be more or less time, depending on what you want or the jeweler.
A set list, or setlist, is typically a handwritten or printed document created as an ordered list of songs, jokes, stories and other elements an artist intends to present during a specific performance.

Hire a wedding emcee
Your wedding day should be perfect. Hiring a wedding MC or a master of ceremonies to handle the reception entertainment flow helps ensure that everything flows according to plan and you can relax.
The role of a wedding emcee matters to ensure that the program is followed. The emcee brings order and fun to keep wedding disasters at bay. The couple hosted with some humour to smile on the guests' faces. They can segue and improvise whenever program hiccups happen to keep everyone entertained.
Make your reception a blast!
Aside from the master of ceremonies, other essential elements make your reception a blast!
Paying close attention to these elements will make a festive occasion even more memorable:
- Wedding music – No wedding is complete without entertainment. Be it the background music, an intermission or the main event, music will always set the right mood. Our pick of the best wedding songs.»
- Wedding games – The bouquet and the garter toss maybe some of the highlights of a wedding reception, but it does not need to stop there. Games for grown-ups are a great addition to entertain your guests and have a few laughs in the process.
- Wedding food – The wedding theme nowadays includes a properly conceived menu. Some like to stay traditional and formal; others find value in contemporary and out of the box menu. There are also wedding events that pair food with entertainment.
Melbourne is a favourite wedding destination for its modern ambience, the lively metropolis and the amenities it can offer. And this is where Lovegrove Wedding Entertainment Melbourne comes in.

THE EVOKE ENTERTAINMENT STORY
To tell such a story, we must wind the clock back to 2007-2008. The lead vocalist of our number one event band, 'Let's Groove Tonight', and CEO Chris Ninni found himself frustrated and disappointed with the quality of the Sydney cover band scene. Chris was a hired hand, the fill-in or feature artist many acts and clients would request for a particular event. This is a great position to be in, except for one fact, every night, Chris found himself working with new musicians in new configurations that simply weren't meeting his expectations. Don't get me wrong, these musicians were all fantastic, but they were weak, disjointed, and deeply uninspiring as a band. Driving home from every performance, Chris constantly pondered the notion "there has to be a better way", and so in 2009, "Let's Groove Tonight" was born.
Early 2009 Chris was on a mission to band together with the finest like-minded musicians Sydney had to offer. The goal was clear, the crystal. "Let's Groove Tonight" was going to go against the grain and deliver a product like no other for the Australian scene. The days of throw together lineups were numbered. This is a new beast with a consistent lineup that performs together week in, week out. A band that is truly a band. One that can reflect its individual qualities yet react as one.
Chris's vision and pursuit for excellence have seen "Let's Groove Tonight" thrive at the heights of the Australian corporate, wedding and events scene for many years now. How "Let's Groove Tonight" became Australia's most dedicated, respected and loved party band is no secret. Upholding the industry's highest work ethic and values is what we're known for. Our personalised client approach keeps past clients coming back, and our attention to detail instils confidence in new clientele.

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 ten years, Adam and Brendan have a wealth of experience that helps to ensure everything runs perfectly on the day for you.
Something Borrowed offer 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.
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 newlyweds.
We are extremely flexible and will work with you to perfect your day. 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 before 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!

Meet the faces behind the music
Q: What do you get when you mix talented musicians with a love of weddings & romance?
A: Maple Creek
One fateful evening a few years back, Cassie & Blake – founders of Maple Creek – were talking over a glass of wine (where all the best conversations start). They loved playing venues around Sydney, but they realised that nothing could ever match the atmosphere of a wedding and how rewarding it is to play at one.
Being a true romantic (and long-time Disney fan), Cassie saw an opportunity to take the band from one that happens to play weddings to one that truly specialises in wedding entertainment and brings that extra bit of magic to an already special day. Not only delivering the right tunes but a level of professionalism, organisation, and presentation that makes the day a dream for the guests — and for everyone involved in making the day run smoothly.
We've all had that feeling when a song makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up or even makes you want to burst into tears for some unknown reason. There's something truly magical about that feeling – it's almost like the feeling of being in love. At Maple Creek, we use our music to create this feeling on your special day — whether walking down the aisle, stepping out to your first dance, or cutting loose on the dance floor.
Singer | MC | DJ | Manager
Oh hey! I'm Cassie, the girl you'll be speaking to along your Maple Creek journey. I'm a hopeless romantic so getting to spend my 'workdays singing at weddings is a dream come true. I'm one half of our duo, MC all our weddings, and whip out the DJ decks occasionally. I don't have a wicked DJ name yet, so I am open to suggestions – DJ Cass the Sass is on the "table" (pun intended).
Singer | Guitarist | Musical Director
Hey, I'm Blake – the axeman here at Maple Creek. I also share the singing with Cass, arrange your song requests for acoustic guitar and vocals and operate the PA. I've been gigging since I was a teenager, playing everything from funk to prog metal to country and mixing it at the sound desk. We love exploring various genres with Maple Creek (ok, maybe not metal!) because everybody has different tastes, and it's exciting to put together a unique setlist for each wedding.

Oberon Lane - Wedding Singers & Bands Melbourne
ABOUT OBERON LANE
Introducing Elle & Jordan
We here at Oberon Lane HQ thought we'd briefly introduce the two people who keep all your weddings and events running behind the scenes. Introducing Elle and Jordan - business partners, musicians, emailers, wedding fans and the owners of Oberon Lane 🙂
It was a chilly September evening 10+ years ago when Jordan was doing a show in Surry Hills, and young pop superstar, Elle May, opened up the show. The two quickly became best mates, and after some fun gigs together, they began writing and playing music together as their country-pop duo @heartbeatsmind.
Fast forward many years, hundreds of gigs, a Nashville recording trip and many travel adventures, the two decided to go into business together and formed Oberon Lane.
They brought together all the best quality artists and musicians they had met over the years, designed some amazing wedding packages, and worked. Oberon Lane was born and within three years booked its 500th wedding.
Now it's daily meetings, hundreds of emails, clients all over Australia and nothing but happy brides and five star-reviews. While the company's day-to-day running fills most of their hours, they still perform at least 100 weddings a year together as the Oberon Lane flagship duo and trio.
They're still best friends too.
OBERON LANE TRIO
The Oberon Lane Trio is one of the freshest and most unique musical acts to hit the Sydney music scene. With the ability to transform between two different sounds (acoustic to DJ trio) with the same musicians, the Oberon Lane Trio's unique and electrifying sounds have seen them perform on some of the most prestigious stages and for the biggest brands in Australia.

Need a DJ or an MC??
Look no further…We realise that you need a music solution that caters for – the ceremony, dinner and dance stages of your Wedding Ceremony & Reception. We can integrate a DJ into the night's music if you only require a smaller ensemble during the early stages of the event. Also, BIG THANKS will ensure that all the music and entertainment needs for your special day will be attended to with absolute professionalism allowing you and your guests to relax and enjoy the day's experience. We learn any song you would like played at your wedding ceremony, and after enjoying your wedding dance, our repertoire will have your guests up and grooving all night long.

BIG THANKS means just that!!! BIG thanks for choosing us to be your wedding band. We guarantee you and your guests will be positively thrilled with the experience.
The Dance sets
If you and your guests love to party, then this is where the BIG THANKS BAND will get things moving and grooving. After some discussions with our team, we'll get a strong idea about what kind of music you're looking for on the dance floor. Then, the Big Thanks Band will pump those tunes out and keep the dance floor jumping. We are experts at keeping the vibe up and continuously flowing. Our musicians are extremely attentive to the sound system during any set breaks and ensure that the volume is turned down for wedding speeches and then lifted to fill the atmosphere between band sets.
Our Big Thanks band will also play any exit songs you may want as you leave the wedding reception and head off on your honeymoon. These little details combine to make your experience with Big Thanks to the absolute premier choice for your wedding music!
The First Dance
Traditionally, this is where the bride and groom dance together for the first time after becoming husband and wife. It usually occurs after the cake cutting, and it is often the time when the band is really in the spotlight to perform at their best. However, the focus is still on the bride and groom while our professional BIG THANKS musicians play your chosen first dance song superbly. During your discussions with our consultants, we can help you decide what your first dance song will be and then our Big Thanks Band will ensure that it is perfectly rehearsed and beautifully delivered during those special moments of your first dance.
