Live Wedding Bands for Hire in Adelaide

Winner of the 2012 Australian Bridal Industry Academy (ABIA) 'Best Live Wedding Band in South Australia' Award

Adelaide Wedding Jazz Band Hire

If you're considering entertainment options for your special day and reckon you might want to hire an Adelaide live jazz music wedding band, you've come to the right place!

Having performed at the majority of South Australian reception & ceremony venues with a track record of over 300 weddings, it's a real sure bet that when it comes to weddings, you won't find anyone that goes more hand in hand than Bill Parton!

WHO’S BILL?
Bill Parton is a popular, classy, hip, charismatic, super-smooth and internationally-acclaimed award-winning vocalist, performer and pianist. He effortlessly combines jazz, swing, adult contemporary & easy listening genres with modern show business to create a product that's cool and socially relevant today. Bill draws his jazz influences from Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Harry Connick Jr, Jamie Cullum, Mark Murphy and Kurt Elling. His mainstream musical influences include The Beatles, Queen, Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, Coldplay and Keane.

Parton comes with a wealth of experience and an impressive resume having been active on the professional live scene since the age of 12 when he first started performing at local piano bars. He has since accumulated a tally of over 1000 performances to over 750 different clients at over 250 different venues. He is both well known and respected within the wedding industry and has even previously won the Australian Bridal Industry Academy (ABIA) Award for 'Best South Australian Live Wedding Band'. His HUGE wide-ranging song library, vast industry experience and professional service delivery all combined stand him in excellent stead to cater for your perfect wedding.

“Undeniably charismatic" – Stephanie Liew (Inpress Magazine)

“The find of the year” – Richard Margetson (ABC)

"A GREAT voice" – Mark Holland (EMI)

 

IT’S MORE THAN JUST THE MUSIC
Bill’s performances have a very special quality….. Bill harnesses the power of music to connect with the heart and soul of his audience. His smooth music creates a ‘feel good’ ‘warm & fuzzy’ atmosphere. Whatever the size of the event, he leaves audiences wanting more and sad to go home.

Bill firmly embraces the ideology that supplying live entertainment goes beyond merely showcasing art. We strive to maintain a premium quality product, carefully tailored to your particular wedding goals, ensuring that you as the Bride & Groom receive optimal value for money.

 

BAND CONFIGURATION
The wedding band for hire that Bill Parton predominantly uses to service receptions is the BP All-Stars which features Bill Parton plus a small rhythm section (i.e. keyboard, bass and drums) and brass section (if required by client). The BP All-Stars, fundamentally speaking, is a wedding jazz band for hire. It's the BP All-Stars configuration that was voted best wedding band in Adelaide!

That being said, Brides and Grooms are most welcome to book BP w/Adelaide Big Band or any of BP Entertainment's Tribute Shows where the venue is large enough, the entertainment budget is ridiculously large and the Bride and Groom are crazy enough to want to book an 18 piece big band for their wedding to make it that extra EXTRA bit special!

 

'BLUEPRINT'
Most commonly, Brides & Grooms tend to utilise Bill Parton in such a way that the music during the initial hours is low-key and in the background creating a warm mood and pleasant ambience as guests arrive, throughout pre-dinner drinks, dinner and amongst your formalities (i.e. speeches etc). Subsequent to the Bridal Waltz and for the last hour or so (once the alcohol usually has oozed-in and as the Bridesmaids kick off their high-heels) the band will raise the volume level a few decibels and perform more up-beat party-like songs to get everyone up on the dance floor and create an ultimate high to conclude the wedding! Does this sound like the kind of format that you're going to be after?
