5 trending musical acts for events

26 April 2018 | Tips


Combining world-class entertainment with high-quality technical services is a sure way to get your event firing on all cylinders.

Musical groups that are inspired, innovative and memorable are super important, because let’s face it, your guests have probably seen it all.

You’ve heard of Quality Control Entertainment (QCE) – an entertainment agency we often recommend to our clients. Because yep, they’re fab.

So when it came time to write this piece, we went straight to Levi Foster from QCE for his take on the hottest talent you can get this year…

A good old DJ… band

Why book a band when you can get a band and a DJ right?

La Fiesta Sound System has proved time and time again that their take on the DJ band concept really gets people excited.

As well as the DJ you can select female or male vocals, afro percussion, drum kit, trumpet, saxophone or guitar. These guys and gals love to perform and they create an electric vibe every time they hit the stage.

What’s also great about them is they can be as unique as your event needs. Every event is different so why have a fixed set list!

No matter the sound, style and performance you’re after (pumping dance floor, elegant atmospheric mood, or bubbling dinner party) La Fiesta has the experience and capability to deliver just what you and your guests want.

Feel the love with a family trio

If your brand values family and you want your event to achieve a real vibe, then Uncle Jed Trio is the act for you.

Levi says they’re the best trio he’s ever worked with. Big statement. But being a family band of siblings, they exude a humbling connection between the music and the band members.

You may recognise Uncle Jed from Australia’s Got Talent – which they went on to win, propelling their album to #6 on iTunes and their audition videos receiving millions of YouTube hits.

They’re perfect for a lunch, cocktail or gala dinner, providing an elegant but sophisticated mix of tunes covering jazz, reggae, soul, folk, classics and pop.

Mix it up with a combo of styles

You can’t go past a group that captivates your guests with groovy tunes. And Myall High Trio is a musically mesmerising band in the corporate space.

Whether you’re launching a super car or opening a custom designed office space, they’ll deliver your ideal atmosphere.

Myall High is an electronic music outfit with roots in house music, afro-cuban and jazz.

They sound a little like Jamiroquai (who just had a flashback?) with their smooth, funky grooves.

They boast a classical harp as a centrepiece and are renowned for their powerful fusion of warm synths, thick bass lines, echoing harp and familiar vocal melodies.

Classical with a twist

Classical is back! But blend classical with pop music and you have a symphonic masterpiece your guests will love.

Aston is a group that was formed by a group of mates from The Sydney Conservatorium of Music as a way of opening classical music up to young people and audiences who may not have been exposed to it.

They’ll perform classical style with modern re-arrangements of artists like John Legend, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Adele, Bruno Mars, Coldplay and Beyoncé … in other words, they deliver the goods.

Set the mood with guitar

Let the sound of guitars transport your guests to South America, Spain and the Mediterranean.

Latin Guitars plays with fire, passion and finesse. With beautiful mood-setting music from the Martinez family unit, you’ll simply get the best acoustic guitarists on the market.

These guys are great because whatever the occasion, they set the perfect uplifting atmosphere without being intrusive.

Plus, their repertoire is wide and varied and they have different formats to suit your event including duo, trio, full band, with vocals, or solo – the choice is yours.
