A T T E N T I O N   T O   D E T A I L!  Melissa is on hand to assist with your wedding reception planning.  Send through a mock running sheet of the meal times and formalities and she is happy to plan Heatwave’s performance times and suggest any adjustments which will make your night run smoothly.    We have the experience and ability to work within any wedding format, from standard 3-course, wedding cocktail event to Chinese banquet weddings.

W E   C A R E!  Heatwave know the importance of their work, we perform as much as we can throughout the entire night, adjusting to any timing amendments on the fly.  We don’t stipulate  strict 3x45min set times, we work around the functions formalities and needs of our couples.  If this means performing a 35min dinner set during entree or pre-dinners and multiple dance sets of varying lengths, we will do it.  But we offer our brides and grooms more than just dance music; each Heatwave wedding performance includes live entrance music to kick the night off with a bang, a mellow dinner/pre-dinner drinks set, and tastefully selected music to accompany formalities such as cutting of the cake, throwing of the bouquet, garter and farewell circle – and of course, our vibrant dance sets will keep the party jumping and the guests on the dance floor!  We are taking Melbourne wedding music to a new level.

Hi Mel, just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the rest of the band for performing at our wedding. You were all amazing! I'm sorry I didn't get to thank the rest of the band in person xo Jess and Reuben


Just wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you for the AWESOME
performance on Sun night. It was a very special day for us and you guys
played a big role. Everybody was very impressed and this was evident by the
numbers on the dance floor! You were great to deal with in the lead-up to
the wedding, very professional, quick to respond to our queries and very
patient. Your set lists and website made it very easy for us to decide what
we wanted and not to mention how great you guys looked on the night. We're
still coming down from all the buzz and excitement......Airlie & Jeevan



Hi Mel. Thanks so much for everything, you have been such a pleasure to work with and am very lucky Germaine put me onto you as you are the best band at a wedding I have seen.
