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 live band options for full 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 piece band price starts from $2,500 inc gst - depending on the day of the week that your wedding/event is taking place, and the time of year.
Our band packages are based on a 5hr timeframe (e.g. 6pm - 11pm) and features 4 x 45min sets (or rather, 3hrs playing time that can be split up as you please). A PA system and band lighting is also included in this price, sufficient for events of up to 180 guests. We also control curated music through the PA during any band breaks so the music is seamless from beginning to end.
Important: If you book any of our live music packages with our photography and/or film, then a further 5% discount is applied to each service.
