THE WHITE TREE LIVE MUSIC
The White Tree has been rocking dance floors since 2008 and we're proud to have Australia's most talented musicians and DJs gigging with us right around the country. We can travel to any wedding or event location, and as you will see below, we offer a range of live music and DJ packages to suit just about any brief.
To explain our music products in simple terms, we offer 3 main packages:
1. Live Band Options: Featuring our 3 - 9 piece band line ups
2. TWT Live Mix: This features our DJ performing together WITH live instruments (sax, trumpet and/or Latin percussion)
3. Acoustic/DJ combos: This combines our live acoustic music early on, and a stand alone DJ for the dance sets
We also offer 'add ons' such as live ceremony music and cocktail/acoustic sets (featuring a smaller number of musicians such as a soloist, duo or trio) and additional sets from the band and/or DJ that extend beyond our standard 5hr packages.
All three options are popular and fantastic music options for weddings or events. It just comes down to the aesthetic that you prefer and what your brief is.
But to help you work out your preferred option, let's break down our three options for you and explain their attributes and prices/inclusions together with some handy film examples.
1. The White Tree Band Options
Our full live band options for wedding receptions or corporate events start from a 3 piece band. This is typically a line up of male vocals/guitar, bass and drums. Our 3 - 9 piece band packages are based on a 5hr timeframe (e.g. 6pm - 11pm) and feature 4 x 45min sets (or rather, 3hrs playing time that can be split up as you please). Our PA system and band lighting is also included in this price, sufficient for events of up to 180 guests. We also control appropriate music through the PA during any band breaks so the music is seamless from beginning to end.
Important: We offer cheaper prices for non-Saturday events and winter bookings (in June, July and August). Also, if you book and of our live music packages with our photography and/or film, then a further 5% discount is applied to each service.

The Party Starter package is a cost effective option featuring live acoustic early on (3 x 40min sets) and then our singer remains behind with the PA system to play dance music for the latter stages of the event. Note: This is not a full DJ service, it is equipment hire.

Soloist: $750 inc gst

THE WHITE TREE FILM
The first thing to mention is that we know a number of couples umm and ahh about whether to book film. It’s often something that gets added into the mix down the track, only if the budget is in check. But remember that with the stunning scenery is in Byron, it’s an incredible backdrop for us to work with when filming, so we encourage you to book film. You won’t regret it!
Secondly, in terms of how we work our inclusions, it’s again pretty simple. We have the three Levels (1, 2 and 3), differentiated by the hours of coverage and the subsequent number of edits. The best thing to do is CLICK ON THIS LINK, which explains in detail how our film inclusions work and what our aesthetic and approach is to filming weddings.
Also, here is a little sample of our film work:
