General

Do Party Shirt Music travel? If so, how much?

We’ll drive, or sometimes even Rex Air to anywhere in Victoria, and sometimes even a little over the border for fun. There are obvs costs involved which are tallied in the BOOK NOW calculator at checkout. The fee is based on a per km $ amount per muso. Simples.

If you have questions, or think you can talk us down (you can’t, we’re ridiculously cheap already), the take the ‘Request A Callback’ option.

Does Party Shirt Music bring all their own sound equipment?

Yeah we do! But.. There’s always a but… If you have more than 200 guests, there may be an additional production charge. We’ll have a wired mic available for you, but if you want a wireless mic, lighting or for the band to bring a battery powered speaker for a ceremony, you can add those to your booking for a small fee.

How do we book Party Shirt Music?

To book us, instant book and pay the $500 deposit through our book now page to lock in a date.
Two months prior to your event date we will contact you to finalise your song request and run sheet. Two weeks out, we will finalise all event details and no further changes are able to be made.

How does 
Party Shirt 
keep prices 
down?

All of the crew at Party Shirt have done a few weddings in our time, and have learnt what’s really needed to make for great wedding entertainment. We don’t think you need as much as what people tell you, hence why we offer a smaller amount of play time, focus on playing the right songs and not so much on who is in the band. We don’t do live showcases or weddings expos, and still get heaps of work.. That’s why we’re able to keep your costs down.

DJs

Is the DJ a real DJ or just a dude with a playlist?

We book real DJs. A DJ has real skill; they mix, they read the faces of every crowd member, they employ a range of fantastic dance moves designed to engage and enrapture any audience. For a discounted rate, we can most definitely let you play your own playlists (or even one of ours) through our sound system if that’s your vibe.

Can I contact the DJ directly to organise anything?

Aliquam erat volutpat. Cras ut sapien eros. Duis semper eu mauris ac pharetra. Phasellus id enim eu magna sagittis tristique sit amet in elit. Morbi imperdiet purus tempor pretium tristique.

Can I give my playlist for the DJ to play from?

Aliquam erat volutpat. Cras ut sapien eros. Duis semper eu mauris ac pharetra. Phasellus id enim eu magna sagittis tristique sit amet in elit. Morbi imperdiet purus tempor pretium tristique. Etiam dapibus, leo et ultrices commodo.

Live Bands

Do we have to feed the muso/s?

If you want to just book the band or DJ for the last 3 hours of your event, you don’t have to buy us anything to eat or drink. Same goes if you just book an acoustic artist for the early evening. If you want us there early, you’ll have to buy us a main meal and some drinks as well.

How long will the musicians perform for?

Our standard booking period for our wedding band is 5 hours, in which we will play 120 minutes of live party music.

A standard event would see us play:

  • 3 x 40mins of party music, or
  • 2 x 40min party music sets and 1 x 40min chill set, or
  • 1 x 40min party set and 2 x 40min chill sets, or
  • 3 x 40min chill sets.

It’s up to you. 

We’re also fully qualified Ninjas. So if you want to save money on buying dinner (you have to if booked for over 3 hours), then we can happily arrive at 7pm, stealthily set up for an 8pm start of dance floor bangers.

If you book one of our DJs, they’ll be there for the 5 hours.

 

 

When will the band arrive and how long do they need to set up?

We have gotten our setup down to a fine art. We’ll rock up with plenty of time (usually just over one hour before our designated start time) and be ready to go when you need us to be. We don’t do big loud sound checks, so fret not!

What sized band should I choose?

We offer a range of band sizes to suit all budgets and venue sizes… But the biggest one is the best.
