I’VE ENJOYED THE WHITE TREE BAND TONIGHT. HOW DO I GO ABOUT BOOKING THEM?
The easiest thing is to call or email us tomorrow. If you haven't liaised with a booking manager yet, you can send through an official enquiry via our website, or gain our booking manager’s details from the contact section of our website.
To lock us in, we need two things:
1. Confirmation of which product you want to book and your singer/instrumentation requests.
2. Payment of the deposit invoice.
You can click here to view all of our prices + inclusions for all of our services.
WHY IS THERE MORE THAN ONE SINGER WITH THE BAND?
We have a few singers so you can choose who you like best. The girls and guys perform a similar repertoire, but as you’ll see they have different voices and performance delivery.
In addition to their live performances tonight, below are some live film showreels of our singers:
HOW DOES THE WHITE TREE BAND CONFIGURATION WORK AND WHAT IS INCLUDED?
The band’s configuration can be customised to suit your budget and music requirements. The price variation is based on the number of musicians. For example a 4 piece band includes 4 musicians. A 5 piece band includes 5 musicians, and so on. All of our band configurations will include bass, drums, vocals, and a chord instrument (guitar or keyboard). You can then add saxophone, trombone, keys, percussion etc to create a bigger band.
All of our reception band packages feature:
- 5hr timeframe (e.g. 6pm - 11pm)
- 4 x 45min live sets, or rather; 3hrs total playing time which you can split up as you please across the 5hr schedule.
- All band line ups include full PA system and music controlled during any band breaks, so the music is seamless from beginning to end
- Personal online portal to customise your musical brief such as song requests, set times etc.
CAN I HAVE A MALE AND FEMALE SINGER?
Of course! A 5 piece band (or larger) best accommodates male and female vocals as there are other core instruments (guitar and keyboard) which should be added first. You can CLICK HERE for general film showreels on all of our various band sizes.
THE BAND ARE GOOD...BUT THEY’RE QUITE LOUD. WILL THEY BE THIS LOUD EARLY ON AT OUR WEDDING?
Tonight we are predominantly showcasing material for the upbeat/dance sets - when the music is more energetic and louder. However early on at any event, we obviously play at a much softer volume suitable for background purposes when guests are chatting and eating.
WE'RE NOT SURE IF WE SHOULD BOOK A BAND OR DJ?
Good news! Firstly, tonight we are showcasing our live band AND DJ options, so you can get a great feel for how the two aesthetics will work and sound. Secondly, we do have two package options that enable you to book both. Our Best Of Both reception package is a 5hr time frame where the first half of the night features our live acoustic music (solo, duo or trio) and then our TWT DJ takes over for the dance sets.
We also have our TWT Live Mix product. This is a 5hr time frame and it features our TWT DJ for the full 5hr call, and then sax, trumpet, percussion or vocals to perform WITH the DJ for 3 x 40min feature sets.
If you want your guests arm in arm singing along to all the big anthems, then a live band (3 - 9 piece) is arguably the best option. We take pride in having some of Australia's best vocalists who not only sing well...but also really entertain, engage and energise the crowd.
HOW WILL THE SONG SELECTION PROCESS WORK FOR OUR WEDDING?
Once your booking is confirmed, we set you up with an online portal where you can select songs from our list and also describe the genres/artists/songs that you like...and perhaps dislike! This then acts as the ‘musical brief’ for our team.
You can CLICK HERE to view a list of songs that we regularly play at weddings and events. All of our singers know these songs.
Our pricing includes us performing your wedding dance live if required (this song does not necessarily have to come from our website song list). We can also learn a few special request songs that aren’t on our website song list. We'll do whatever we can to get that dance floor rocking which is what we're renowned for!
CAN WE ADD CEREMONY MUSIC AND/OR CANAPES SETS TO THE BOOKING?
Of course! Our ceremony music info can be found by CLICKING HERE. Our canapes sets can be booked at a rate of $180 per musician per hour. Usually a soloist or duo is what our clients book for the canapes/cocktail hour.
It's also fine to lock in the key reception package, and then book the ceremony and/or canapes sets down the track once your timings and logistics have been firmed up.
HOW DO YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY AND FILM PACKAGES WORK?
We have three packages described as Level 1, 2 and 3. The Levels offer similar editing output to keep things simple. They are primarily differentiated by the hours/coverage on the day. Level 1 includes 3 hours, Level 2 includes 6 hours and Level 3 allows for 9 hours. You are free to choose the shoot start time and the coverage then rolls from there. So for example, if you book us for Level 2 and you started the coverage at 2pm for the bride preps...that would mean a finish time of 9pm at the reception. Very straight forward!
You can also add 1 x additional hour to each Level if required. Whichever Level you book, you receive the following output:
- An online highlights gallery
- A full collection of hi-res images
(fully colour-graded, delivered via an easy-to-download online gallery)
- You receive a minimum of 500, 750 or 1000 images for Level 1, 2 or 3 respectively
- All photos supplied in colour AND black + white
- A cinematic showreel
- 1 x instagram edit
- Long form edits which include ceremony in full, speeches etc.
- All edits supplied online and stored in the cloud for you to easily share with friends and family
- The edit durations for the Level 1, 2 and 3 packages can be found on our website

Our booking managers can also chat to you about our photography and film service too, if that is of interest.
*Remember we offer multiple service booking discounts if you book us for more than one service.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS IF I DO BOOK MULTIPLE SERVICES THROUGH YOU GUYS?
We feel that booking multiple services through us keeps the communication nice and streamline. For all three services we have interactive planning portals and you will then be dealing with just one contact rather than several separate businesses.
All of our photographers, filmmakers and musicians know each other extremely well, so when you book us for two or three services you’re getting a talented crew of close friends who collaborate really well together. This is particularly beneficial if booking our photography and film as our shooters know how to work around each other, and they approach the shoot with the same relaxed and candid ethos.
Finally, there is the cost benefit. We offer 5% multiple service booking discounts, which, if booking us for all three services, can equate to a saving of around $1,000.
Remember our music, photography and film prices are all online. You can jump on there and select services to create accurate quotes on the fly.
CAN I BOOK THE BAND FROM TONIGHT, AND THEN WAIT TO ADD PHOTOGRAPHY AND/OR FILM DOWN THE TRACK?
You can add any service at any stage, subject to availability. The multiple service booking discounts will always be applicable. For peak dates we book out generally 9+ months in advance, so just try to let us know as soon as possible.
Again, thanks so much for attending tonight's showcase - and we hope to work with you in the future!
