Code 9AAP-Jazz-swing-Melbourne

Andys trio or quartet are energetic and spontaneous and have been wowing audiences across Australia for nearly a decade. At 27 years of age, Andy is what you’d call an “old soul”. His love for jazz and swing started at the tender age of 10, and since then Andy has developed into an accomplished and well respected performing artist. Combining the elegance of jazz classics with the fun and energy of party hits.
Can you imagine your guests enjoying the sultry sounds of a roving saxophonist as they mingle outside for pre-dinner drinks? Or how about the classical elegance and emotion of a flute or oboe solo as you walk down the aisle? Or what about having your own little "Michael Buble" entertaining your corporate guests and clients in style? And let's not forget about the all-time classic hits that you'll need when it's time to dance the night away!
Many people fall into the trap of hiring a string quartet for a wedding ceremony, a roving artist for pre-dinner drinks, and then a costly four or five piece band for the reception. Take a step back and consider how much time, effort and expense you would save by simply booking Andy to do the job of all three entertainment options.
Andy has performed around two hundred times a year for the past ten years: everything from weddings to corporate launches, nighclubs to bowls clubs, international resorts to private residences. Each performance is special, and each performance is tailored to meet your vision of the perfect event.

Code 74BPW-MC-Ceremony writer-Melbourne

The written word includes writing: Speeches, letters, eulogies, wedding vows and in fact, anything that you want to say, but are not sure how to say it.
The spoken word is all about presentation, communication and liaison brought together in the role of Master of Ceremonies.
To me, the role of an MC is to become the conduit between the client and venue, as well as all other services involved at the event, including entertainment. The client should never have to wonder who he or she should be speaking to in order to fix a problem, thats my job; simply tell me and I will work out how to get it fixed.
Any event, whether a wedding or a corporate function, is not all about the MC, yes, the MC needs to be entertaining, informative and a relaxed, warm communicator, but the MC also has to understand the delicate balance of running the show without stealing the show. The MC must always be the second fiddle to the main act, whether that be a Bride & Groom or a Corporate Client, they are the real stars of the show.
A good MC will ensure the smooth running of any event, a great MC will produce a flawless event that will be remembered for all of the right reasons, they may not remember exactly who the MC was, but they will always remember the job they did.

Wedding 208A-Fire Effects- Sculptures-Melbourne

Fire effects and Fire sculptures are an amazing way to create a feature at an event or as a marketing tool. Fire effects are also perfect for film, TV and theatrical productions as set pieces or as special effects for that real fire look.

Fire signs and sculptures use fire to create a design which is lit to reveal the design. The flames are real fire, in natural flame or coloured flame if desired. Fire effects can vary but commonly have a burn time of up to 10 minutes. Fire signs are re-usable and the effect can be replicated over and over again.

Although primarily for outdoor use, some fireworks and fire effects are safe to use in some indoor environments however they still release some noxious gases and should be ventilated well. Some options available include:

  • 2D and 3D, vertical or horizontal event installation
  • Stage show effects
  • Film and TV effects
  • Ceremonial pyres
  • Logo, name and text display
  • Pictorial display
  • Coloured flames available

Wedding 392A- Scottish BagPiper-Melbourne

Regarding Weddings, I am happy to perform at whatever part of the ceremony you may wish and can also make suggestions as to what would be suitable if you are unsure.

The usual format is as follows:

As guests arrive, the piper plays an assortment of tunes 20 to 30 minutes prior to the ceremony

The piper then plays the Bride or Bridal Party down the aisle, known as the Processional. Often the piper leads or sometimes remains at the rear of the Church or wherever the ceremony is taking place. The tune played at this point may be chosen by the Bride and Groom or a recommendation will be given.

During the signing of the register, the piper plays a short piece of incidental music, usually of a reflective nature

Once the ceremony has concluded, the piper will play for the Newlyweds during the Recessional. As with the Processional, the piper may lead or remain out of the way at the rear of wherever the ceremony is taking place. The music played here is usually more upbeat in nature than what is used earlier in the ceremony

As the guests congratulate the Newlyweds, the piper plays an assortment of tunes for another 20 to 30 minutes

If the reception is at the same location as the ceremony, the piper will often lead the Newlyweds to their table. If this is required but the reception is sometime away or at another location, extra cost may be involved.
