What you need to know
Duke’s packages aim to provide live music throughout your entire event. This ensures the perfect musical accompaniment for every special moment, working in and around the formalities of your wedding day or special event. Performing beautiful folk & pop songs, classic laid-back lounge, and sassy upbeat pop tunes, Duke create the perfect atmosphere from the cocktail hour to the dance-floor! All sound & lighting requirements and special song requests are also catered for, as well as unlimited, professional advice and support in planning your entertainment in the lead up to your event.
A regular act at some of Sydney best venues, weddings and corporate functions, Duke have garnered fans and praise for their contemporary cover versions of current hits and classics. Duke’s most popular packages are listed here, however additional musicians can be added to create a bigger band size, suitable for larger events. Regular additions include a sax player, male vocalist, or percussionist.
Duke’s artists are Sydney-based, however we are more than happy to travel and quite often do! Please note that fees for travel, accommodation or transfers, may be payable in addition to our packages for any event which is a substantial distance from Sydney CBD and has a late finish. We are happy to be as flexible as possible to accommodate your budget and plans, as we know everyone is different. Unsure if your event will incur a travel fee? Contact us. Please note PA hire costs may also be applicable for Interstate or International events.
How To Book
Although our artists may be available for your event at the time of your enquiry, this doesn’t guarantee artist availability. Duke simply offer their services on a first-in first-served basis, and a deposit and signed copy of our booking agreement are required in order to secure your booking. To avoid disappointment please contact us if you have any questions and we’ll be happy to assist you with information on how to make your deposit, and provide you with a copy of our booking agreement to secure your entertainment.

RECOMMENDED! Featuring our infamous DUKE BAND (from 5-piece up to 7-piece band).
This is our most popular package for clients wanting to have the very best of Duke; the intimate atmosphere of an acoustic DUO at the start of the day, then a packed-out, blazing-hot, dance-floor when the sun goes down!! You’ll be singing at the top of your lungs and your guests will be raving about how good the band is! (You can read all our 5-star REVIEWS here).
FYI – this is not well-suited to venues with sound-restrictions, as we bring all the bells and whistles to ensure an excellent time!
DUO + TRIO + DJ all day
This package includes performances as a DUO, TRIO and DJ. For a wedding, DUKE typically begin the day at your ceremony as a DUO, then we introduce our Sax player (who is also a Vocalist) to form a TRIO for your Canapes and Dinner music at your Reception. Then we switch to DJ mode when your D-Floor opens. Perfect for any event size if you’re wanting a beautiful Ceremony partnered with a rocking D-floor later in the evening. An especially great option for venues with sound or space restrictions.
DUO + TRIO all day

Suitable for capturing the acoustic sounds of your favourite love songs at your Ceremony as a DUO, feel-good lounge vibes as your guests arrive for Canapés & during dinner as a TRIO, which continues into upbeat tunes for your guests to vibe along to for the rest of the event! Highly recommended for intimate events where socialising is a must but dancing is a maybe.
