HAVE WE MET?

I LOVE to meet my couples prior to the day at a public gig!

But these days, I'm too booked out with weddings to allow me to play at the usual pub / bar gigs. 

(*I also need some time on the couch with my two gals, Alana and Zelda the border collie)

 

Once a month, I'll play a 45 min chill set at my local coffee spot Ocean Grind at 10am Saturday morning in Torquay. 

It's not a ticketed event, but I'll have an open case for donations that go 100% to Sea Shepherd (and I'll match your donations dollar for dollar)

Follow my on Instagram for updates about the next date

When it's not possible for you to make it to this gig - that's totally understandable!

The next best thing is to  do is:

HOW DOES HIRING A MUSICIAN WORK AND HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?

Hopefully quite smoothly and without too extravagant a rider...

Each wedding is different - Cal has played hundreds of them! Please send through an enquiry and a tailored quote to your location, times & travel will be sent through within 48 hours.

I'm able to take care of your music from cruisey tunes during pre ceremony guest arrivals to closing the night with a dance floor filling banger while in DJ mode.

WHAT DO YOU NEED ON THE DAY?

 

All I need is a small flat area undercover with access to a power point. If you're planning an outdoor/beach/forrest ceremony, let me know and I will bring along a second battery powered system.  Don't forget to have a plan B in case of wet weather!

 

CAN WE USE YOUR P.A SYSTEM FOR SPEECHES?

Yes of course. I will provide you with a wired mic (included as standard) for your MC and provide a quick tutorial on how to speak into them (there's a knack!).  If you require a wireless microphone, this can be added in as an extra for you.

CAN WE PICK THE BACKGROUND MUSIC BETWEEN YOUR SETS?

Sure thing – if you send me a Spotify playlist link, I’ll have them downloaded for you on the day.

CAN YOU MOVE YOUR SET UP ON THE DAY?

Absolutely. My all day package includes setting up in two locations --- at your ceremony and reception.  If you require a third location, I will bring a second P.A system to ensure a smooth transition between areas and minimal musical downtime.

WHAT TIME WILL YOU START PLAYING?

I’m the most flexible part of your day – once you’ve got your run sheet of the night we can discuss the timing of my sets. A nice guide is to check the time of sunset on the date of your wedding as this will be the best time for the two of you to get photos – during this time I can play a relaxed acoustic set as your guests mingle. We’ll build up to more danceable songs into the later hours

MY UNCLE JIM IS A GREAT GUITARIST AND WANTS TO PLAY US A SONG ON THE DAY - CAN HE?

Absolutely! Remember this is YOUR wedding The only thing that HAS to happen is having the celebrant saying something along the lines of ‘I am duly authorised by law to solemnise marriages...”. If Uncle Jim could give me a call on 04 3938 1987 or email me at info@calyoungmusic.com we’ll be able to organise this for you.

THIS ALL SOUNDS GREAT - CAN WE LOCK IN YOUR DATE?

We can lock in your day - please fill out the enquiry form and we'll be able to talk about a price to add live music to your wedding day.
