When it’s time to get the party started we pick up our electric guitars, fire up the party lights and get to work! 

Acoustic Duo Wedding Band

Here’s a sample of our acoustic duo sound. No editing magic here just two guys singing and playing totally live.


At a glance: Why choose Brightside Duo as your wedding band?

1. We know weddings

I mean, we really know them. We’ve played at hundreds of them! We know what songs to play, and when to play them.  And our experience really counts when making sure your big day runs as smoothly as possible. We are also very happy to offer advice on how to structure your event.

2. Our pricing is competitive.

We can provide amazing entertainment for your whole event with just two people – which means less people have to get paid, which means you save money! Our top of the range PA system, lighting, microphone for speeches, and DJ service is all included in our price. Consequently, if you book direct with us you will also save money on agency fees. 

3. We are flexible and can provide entertainment for your entire event! 

From gentle acoustic music for your ceremony, to jazz instrumentals over canapés, to professional and funny MCing, to huge dance floor anthems, we can do it all. With just two people.

4. We are the only Brightside Duo

We are not an agency, so when you book us, you get us. Due to us being in a band together for many years we don’t have to read lyrics or chords from charts. Instead, we can actually concentrate on performing and engaging with you and your guests.

5. We are compact and adaptable

All we need is a power-point and shelter. We have top of the range audio and lighting equipment and can adapt to nearly any situation we are presented with. From intimate gatherings to large scale events with hundreds of guests.

6. Our lighting show is awesome.

One of the best ways to help create a party atmosphere is with effective lighting. We go above and beyond in this department. See our videos for evidence.

7. Last but not least – We’re entertaining!

We interact with the crowd, tell jokes (some of them are even funny). We don’t just play songs – we always do our best to bring a sense of FUN to your event.

What does Brightside bring and how does it all work?

We bring all equipment and lighting necessary for our show. Which means that all you have to do is book us and we take care of the rest! We can adapt to nearly any space (most of the time there’s only two of us) and with our ridiculous lighting gear we can transform any venue into an awesome party!

We bring:

  • Our top of the range PA systems (we have enough gear for multiple set ups)
  • Stage and dance floor lighting
  • Wireless microphone for speeches
  • Music for in between our sets
  • Years of experience and a professional attitude

Wedding Reception Music

The wedding reception is not just about dinner, speeches and formalities. It’s also the time when the bridal party and guests can let their hair down and have some fun! This is where your wedding band comes in. No wedding reception is complete without some great live music to dance and sing along to. Check out our 5 minute guide to wedding music for ideas on how to structure your event!

We understand that the reception often goes for a number of hours. Early in the event your guests will want to chat, eat, mingle and of course speeches and other formalities need to occur at some point. Keeping this in mind we don’t come out guns blazing straight away but stick to more mellow acoustic music playing familiar tunes that everyone can enjoy without drowning out conversations. Once the formalities are over we take it up a level to get the dance floor pumping by playing all your favourite songs from the classics to modern favourites.

We are also more than happy to learn songs for the reception. Like the ceremony we want to make your reception memorable so if there is a special song you would like us to learn for the wedding dance we’d love to help out by doing our own acoustic rendition. But if you’d prefer to playing the original version by the artist, no problem either – we can play the mp3 through our top of the range P.A. system!

Wedding Ceremony Music

We have played countless wedding ceremonies but each one has its own special and unique feel. We know yours will too. As guests start to arrive we play a selection of mellow acoustic instrumental music that adds to the ambience of the pre-ceremony without being overly loud so people are able to chat and mingle.

The ceremony itself is all about you. We are more than happy to learn music for the bridal entrance, signing of the registry and exit. Many people have specific songs that resonate personally with them and their partner. Having these played at one of the most important moments of their life can add that special touch to make the ceremony just right. If you are having trouble deciding what music will suit best have no fear, we have an extensive repertoire and are more than happy to offer suggestions and guidance.

Canapé Music & MC service

Planning on following your ceremony with canapés served outdoors in the sunshine? Well nothing accompanies food and a glass of wine better than music! We can offer more light background acoustic music that can range from instrumental jazz through to acoustic pop and is a great way to bridge the gap between the ceremony and reception.

We are very happy to MC your event, we’ve performed this important task many times before and know how to set the right mood for you and your guests and make sure the event runs as smoothly as possible. Most people are surprised at how much is involved in MCing an event – It’s not just making a couple of announcements. An MC needs to work with the bride and groom,venue, band, and photographer during the course of the event and can be pivotal to making the event run smoothly.
