About Me

Hey! Im Benny

I'm a father to one beautiful girl, a second bubba almost ready to join us (due June 2023), one giant Great Dane called Scooby and husband to my beautiful wife Renee.

I'm an easy going, approachable, warm people loving type of guy. I like to think i could yarn to anyone and make them feel welcome, especially in my home. One of my favourite compliments I've received was from a guest at a wedding who thought i was a close friend of the couple, when i told her I had actually never met them in person she was shocked and told me "The way you guys are interacting, i thought you were great friends"

I obviously love music (i genuinely annoyed everyone in my family with my non stop singing) and i love everything MMA/Muay Thai, most of my teenage years were spent in a Muay Thai ring, or running the hills with my Uncle (trainer) yelling at me im too fat (I was 67kg) and i need to cut out the pies (if you have ever had a pie from NZ, you would know that's this is impossible)

I'm a full time wedding singer, have always been a bit of a romantic, which is why i fell into weddings. I also trade the Forex markets and love business. When I'm not singing you could find me either with my family cooking reverse seared rib-eye steaks, or smoking a cheeky cigar and listening to some good tunes with a good book.

One of the main reasons to hire wedding singers or music bands for weddings is for the emotional impact they can have on the ceremony. Music has the power to evoke feelings and memories, and a singer can perform a special song for the couple's first dance, or even sing live during the ceremony itself, adding an extra layer of sentimentality to the occasion. Whether it's a traditional ballad or a contemporary hit, the right song, performed by a talented singer, can set the tone for the entire event and make it truly unforgettable.

Personalised experience
Another benefit of hiring a Gold Coast wedding singer is the versatility they bring to the table. A professional wedding singer typically has a wide range of songs in their repertoire, covering different genres and eras. They can perform classic love songs, upbeat dance numbers, and even special requests from the couple or their guests. This means that a Brisbane wedding singer can cater to the musical preferences of the couple and their guests, creating a personalised and enjoyable experience for everyone.

Furthermore, hiring wedding singers or music bands for weddings can also be an excellent way to entertain guests during downtime between the ceremony and reception, or during the reception itself. A singer can provide background music or even perform during dinner, keeping guests entertained and engaged throughout the event. This can help create a relaxed and festive atmosphere, making the wedding more enjoyable for everyone.

A touch of elegance
A wedding singer or a wedding band in Brisbane can also add a touch of elegance and sophistication to the event. A professional singer typically has a polished and professional stage presence, and their performance can add a touch of class and style to the ceremony and reception. A Brisbane wedding singer can also be a great addition to any themed wedding, such as a vintage or a beach wedding, adding a sense of authenticity to the theme.

Convenience and affordability
Another great advantage of hiring wedding singers or music bands for weddings is the convenience. A professional wedding singer typically has their own equipment and sound system, which means that the couple doesn't have to worry about the technical aspects of the performance. They will also be able to work with the couple to coordinate the timing and logistics of the performance, making the process seamless and stress-free for the couple.

Setting the tone
Music plays such an important role in weddings. From the ceremony to the reception, music sets the tone and creates the atmosphere for the entire event. It also helps to make the wedding more personal, memorable and enjoyable for both the couple and their guests.

One of the most important moments in a wedding ceremony is the processional and recessional. The music chosen for this can set the tone for the entire ceremony. A beautiful and meaningful song can create an emotional and intimate atmosphere, making it a more special moment for the couple and the guests. The music can also reflect the theme and style of the wedding, whether it be traditional or contemporary.

Keeping the Party Going: Music in the Reception
The reception is another important aspect where music can play a significant role. The right music can create a relaxed and festive atmosphere, keeping guests entertained and engaged throughout the event. A live wedding band in Brisbane or a DJ can provide a wide range of music, catering to different tastes and ages, from background music during dinner to upbeat dance numbers that will get everyone on the dance floor.

Australian weddings are known for their laid-back and relaxed atmosphere. Many couples here opt for live music, such as wedding music bands or solo singers, to provide a more authentic and organic feel to the reception. The live music can also be more engaging and interactive, allowing guests to request songs and even join in the performance.

Aussie Style: Music in Australian Weddings
In addition to live music, many Australian couples also choose to incorporate traditional cultural music into their wedding. This can include Indigenous music or traditional Australian music such as bush ballads or didgeridoo performances. This not only adds a unique and authentic touch to the wedding but also helps to celebrate and honour the cultural heritage of the land, the couple and their guests. Hiring wedding music bands can be the perfect way of doing this.


I truly believe that music creates the atmosphere for your whole day. Everything is affected by music, the ceremony, canapés, reception, photography & videography. It should be easy for you, and most importantly it should reflect your own unique love. I will guide you through the day, make it seem effortless. I will build the energy at each moment. Music is embedded in so many of our most beautiful memories, i want the music you hear on your wedding day to remind you of all of those memories.

I love this, and you will see that from the first call to the video catch up, guiding you through different ways to start the dance-floor, to make your aisle song pop, creating a perfect dance playlist, how to feel comfortable in your first dance... All of it, its my second language and i know i can make your wedding more then even you dreamed possible
