Melissa and the team were great to work with. Very accommodating for our tastes and needs. Minimal fuss and were more than happy on the night for impromptu changes to the order of events at our request.

Melissa with the 5 piece band were absolutely amazing! They were professional, they judged the crowd really well and they had absolutely everyone up on the dance floor. Their expertise meant I didn’t have to worry about a thing on our wedding night. They were easy to communicate with and I would definitely hire them again. If you haven’t already and you’re looking for a wedding band, book them NOW!!! Before it’s too late.

I could not recommend Black Suede Band enough, they were fantastic at our wedding. At times I didn't know if it was Melissa singing or the DJ - fantastic voice. You sure had everyone up and dancing. You also impressed the venue and they raved about you guys. So thank you for a fantastic night, really made our wedding that extra memorable.

We where fortunate to see Black Suede at a friends wedding a few years ago, so when it came time for us to book a band, we contacted Melissa and her wonderful musicians and booked them in. They played great music, all the songs we picked and more. Had everyone up dancing all night and just a great atmosphere. Everyone had a great night and if was to ever have anything on and needed a band, Black Suede will be it... 10/10 for these guys

 Austin Healey Sprite Drivers Club 50th Anniversary Gala Dinner 30th July 2016

On behalf of the Club Committee, the Club 50th Anniversary Committee and all Club Members & friends who attended our 50th Anniversary Gala Dinner I would like to thank and congratulate Black Suede Band for the important contribution you made to this milestone celebration night of ours.

As you can probably appreciate it was such a milestone occasion for the Club that everybody’s expectations for every aspect of the night was set very high and I think I can say with confidence that these expectations were met or exceeded – including any expectations we had of Black Suede Band.

Black Suede band was a pleasure to deal with in the lead up to the event in terms of communication & engagement, selection of our preferred music, working within our preferred ‘running order’ for the night, the check and sound check at the venue prior to commencement of things on the actual big night. I’d like to particularly mention the song we had specially written for the night which you kindly agreed to deliver – and you did so wonderfully.

Congratulations on your talent and professionalism and thank you for the important part you played at our 50th Anniversary Gala Dinner. We would have no hesitation in asking Black Suede Band to participate at any similar event we might hold in the future and we would be pleased to recommend you to other parties who might be considering using your services.

Please don’t hesitate to ask prospective clients to contact me if they would like to and I would be happy to tell them about our experience with Black Suede Band.

Yours Sincerely,

Greg Corbin

President – Austin Healey Sprite Drivers’ Club Inc.

Civil Celebrant Dawn Nance

Black Suede Band where a dream to work with. They assisted me in carrying all my equipment to and from the ceremony area and then even helped set up my equipment before they performed! And boy can they play and sing! The ceremony was definitely made extra special with Black Suede Band. I won't hesitate in recommending them to all my future Brides and Grooms.


Bernadette Frost and Peter Richardson (Wedding at Morning Star Estate)


Hi Melissa,

Peter and I just wanted to pass on our gratitude for the fantastic music that your band and DJ played at our wedding on Saturday night at Morning Star Estate.
All our guests were up dancing. My father was up on the dance floor moving to the music which was fantastic to see because he had bee lying in a hospital bed 2 months ago with a broken hip. Everyone loved the Band and DJ. All our wedding guests had a great time. Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to the other band members. Their music was fantastic and made our night so special.


Lisa  (Wedding at International of Brighton)

Hey Melissa,

All I can say is WE LOVED THE BAND! Rebecca was awesome, such a lovely voice and Trent was an amzing MC>

My family were so wrapped with everything and people thought we spent heaps of money on you guys lol.

I called you after the wedding to thank you but left a message.

Thanks so much. xx




Raeleen and Frank Krivaci

Hi Melissa and band,

Just a quick thank you for the beautiful singing you performed for us. There were many comments from guests on how beautifully you all sang. It set the tone for the rest of day which went flawlessly from start to end.

That day was up there as one of the three best days of my life and Raeleen was involved in each of these days:

My smart and beautiful daughter Ashlee being born

My beautiful green eyed son with the golden heart being born

My wedding day to my partner of 35 years that brought into the world the two bundles of joy

Thank you again from both of us for performing and sharing the moment with us !!! 



Leanne - Wedding Bram Leigh Receptions

Hi Melissa,

Just back from the honeymoon, sorry I didn’t get back to you before now! Both Andy and I were very impressed with you and the band on the night and Andrew was devastated that he forgot to thank you all in his speech ! I think Alexs speech really threw him……Now, I wish I had a video of the wedding as it all went past in a blurr and I would have loved to hear you singing my songs again! I would and will highly recommend you to anyone that asks, and I should tell you that guests the next day were raving about you as well……you won the crowd that’s for sure !

So thank you thank you thank you………………….you guys rock

Leanne
