Who are Nightshift Band?

Our music is tight, our attitude is fun. Call us go-with-the-flow entertainers. We’re all about people enjoying themselves in whatever way suits them – a shiny, candlelit formal dinner for 150 or a casual backyard BBQ for 30. You supply the place, we’ll provide the music.

On a more formal note, hate to brag but over the last 18 years, we’ve won 12 wedding industry awards. So we must be pretty fabulous. Right?  All those brides & grooms, and party revellers who voted for us certainly think so. We hope you will too.

Don’t believe us? Check out our Reviews. These are real clients from real weddings and events.

So apart from having fun, our success is built on the fact that we don’t compromise on quality and we don’t try to be everything to everyone. Our focus is on exclusive private events or weddings for up to 150 guests – perfect for today’s couples, birthday or corporate event organisers, who feel it’s more meaningful to create a memorable and personalised experience with high quality entertainment.

We’re aware that the number of Melbourne wedding bands, corporate event bands and basic function bands has exploded over the past ten years, making it difficult for you to choose an experienced, professional act. So here’s some FAQs to help you decide if Nightshift are the right fit for you.

 “Thank you for everything!! You all did an amazing job!
Of course I would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone who may be looking for a band for their wedding.”

Nightshift Melbourne Wedding Band FAQ

Who’s in the band?

The Nightshift core Trio features three of Melbourne’s most talented entertainers: two sensational, dynamic vocalists and an amazingly talented lead guitarist. Importantly, what you see is what you get – the musicians who perform on our demos and at our viewings are the musicians who will turn up to your event. Our members are like family: warm, well-presented, professional musicians who have been with us since day one. Although we mainly operate as a Trio (which sounds like an amazing full band), we also tailor packages ranging from a Duo to 4 piece band, or 5 piece band. DJ music is available between band sets to keep the party going, or for later in the evening.

Why book our live entertainment?

You only have once chance to get your entertainment right. Right? Nightshift shine with a refreshing tightness you won’t find in the average wedding band. Our track record is proven with 12 Australian Bridal Industry Awards (ABIA), voted by clients just like you. We really love what we do and it shows in the care, attention and professional service you receive when booking Nightshift band.

What music styles do we play?

Smooth grooves and acousticy (if that even a word?) style music over dinner, while guests are chatting, then full-on party mode when you’re ready to hit the dance floor. Or we’ll just lay back and cruise all night, party if you want to – it’s up to you. It’s your show. Oh, and we’re not one of those bands who try to play everything to please everyone. We play what we love and it shows: Retro RnB, Funk and Soul. That’s it. No, we won’t learn that latest rap beat dropped at the club (though we can play it on Itunes if you really wanna). Think Stevie Wonder, Bruno Mars, Marvin Gaye, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Jamiroquai, Etta James, James Brown. Get the picture? Trust us – we’re not going to break into Nutbush. Check out our comprehensive Playlist.

What PA equipment do we use?

Our state of the art NEXO system is always maintained to excellent standards so it looks and sounds fantastic – no grubby, second hand equipment here. Our professionally programmed digital sequences provide excellent sound quality and put you in control of the volume levels. With our all inclusive colourful stage lighting, you have the whole package for a fabulous party.

Like Some Advice?

Good food and good music are the make or break factors of a successful event. Ask yourself: in five years time, do you want to be regretting the below average wedding band you saved a few dollars on? Or will your guests still be raving about the amazing party you created with Nightshift?  Make an Enquiry now.
