Duke Music – VIP Showcase Performance

February 13th, 2020, marked a special day for Duke Music. Performing in a VIP Showcase for guests and friends of our 7-piece band, we haven’t had so much fun in a very long time. While we’re proud of our performance, though, it wouldn’t be right to ignore everyone who showed up to watch and listen; it means the world to us, and we can’t thank you enough.

The Band

Duke Music is a group of talented wedding musicians based in Sydney. Comprising of Josephine Ison, Tim Wilson, Chris Gable, Linden Furnell, Andy Horvath, Ryan Mooney, and James Bernaur, our plucky little band is ready to provide music for any event, with weddings being our specialty. We offer packages that aim to fill your entire event with live music, giving you and your guests a unique experience that will be hard to forget.

The Vendors

February’s VIP Showcase wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our favorite vendors. Crane Bar hosted the event, while Mr. Wigley Photography took loads of great snaps of the big day (including all of the ones you’ve seen in this post!), and Sketch & Etch Creative put their genius to work on our brand-new neon light. 

Just FYI, if you’re ever looking for an event planner for your wedding or other special occasions, Em from Days Like These Events is the gal for the job. This showcase would still be an idea if it wasn’t for her.

Richard & Jo’s wedding, featuring Duke Duo + Quintet

We were absolutely delighted to see these photos land in our inbox this week, from the lovely Richard & Jo who married at Manly Barracks.  We performed for them as an Acoustic Duo during their Ceremony & Canapés service, and then as a Quintet for their Dinner music and Dance-floor. It was a great wedding in an iconic Sydney location.  Their wedding featured some of our favourite vendors, including their Celebrant, the delightful Jessie Cacchillo who officiated their wedding.

Thank you to Lucie Weddings for these lovely snaps, and to Jo & Richard for having us at the party of the year!

The Celebrant Society Conference 2019

The Duke Trio were thrilled to recently be part of celebrations for the one and only Celebrant Society, at their 2019 conference.

The Celebrant Society is a community of almost 300 (and growing!) celebrants throughout Australia and New Zealand who are on a mission to change the face of the celebrancy industry through innovative learning, creative sharing and positive social connection.

The party, hosted at Cruise Bar, Circular Quay, featured an illustrious guest list of wedding celebrants (including some of our absolute favourites!). As soon as guests hit the dance-floor at Cruise Bar there was only one thing on everyone’s minds and that was to party! This was very much the party not-to-be-missed by anyone who is in the business of marrying beautiful humans. We were honoured to be part of this amazing event and thank The Celebrant Society for having us.

Thank you very much to Kaitlyn Maree Photography for these great snaps of us in action!
