A Moment With 'Brad + Brodie Music'

ABIA meets the Sunshine Coast musical duo who make up this live acoustic wedding entertainment ensemble


Michael D'Argent

To hear Brad and Brodie sing is to feel your hips start to sway and your feet begin to move. So relaxed are the sounds of their acoustic guitar and vocals, it’s easy to believe that these two have been fascinated by music and entertainment since childhood.

“We are naturally quite reserved people but find our happy place in singing and performing live,” the couple admit.

Certainly, the musical pair seem at home behind their microphones and since they started performing live in 2016, their raw, organic melodies, have proven a hit at weddings.

ABIA took them aside for a moment to chat ceremony music, popular songs, and the deejay service they also offer to really get the party going.

Tell us about your business and wedding entertainment services.

As a couple, and parents to two little girls, we are our business. We've been performing live since 2016 and offer both acoustic solos and acoustic duets for weddings, incorporating a combination of male and female vocals and acoustic guitar. We like to ‘keep it simple’ and fill each song with meaning. We also offer wedding deejaying, so can cater to a range of wedding music requirements, from a serenade down the aisle to the disco at the reception.

How did you get started in the wedding industry?

We fell into it actually! Our first wedding was booked through Gumtree. Since then, we haven't looked back — singing and playing at weddings is something that we are passionate about, and we love what we do!

What locations do you service?

We service the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Toowoomba.

What types of wedding entertainment do you offer? What’s most popular?

We can supply either an acoustic soloist or acoustic duo. We also offer deejaying to pick up the atmosphere at the wedding reception. Our most popular package is our 'Cloud 9 Experience', which is a full day package that consists of up to five hours of live acoustic music followed by deejaying for the rest of the wedding celebration.

How did you become interested in event entertainment?

We were both very interested in music from a young age. Brodie was in the Australian Youth Choir at the age of eight, and Brad started writing songs and learning guitar aged 15. We are naturally quite reserved people, but find our happy place in live singing and performing.

At what point in their wedding planning should couples consider entertainment? How far in advance should they book?

A good time frame for booking wedding entertainment is between six and 12 months ahead of the wedding day. This gives us plenty of time to learn any song requests and be fully prepared. It usually also allows enough time to ensure we have a specific date available.

What styles of entertainment do you recommend for the different elements of wedding ceremonies and receptions?

For ceremonies an acoustic processional and recessional work wonderfully, though we can also play recorded music on our sound systems if a couple has a particular song in mind for walking up or down the aisle.

For wedding receptions, it always works beautifully to play live acoustic up until the first dance. Afterward we usually switch to deejaying to get the party started! The best dance parties happen when all of the guests are dancing together to a classic.

What trends are you seeing among couples at the moment?

It’s popular to do an intimate first dance. Using our battery speaker for live acoustic, guests can circle around, and this creates such a beautiful setting.

What are the most common song and music requests you’re getting right now?

Brides are enjoying ‘Simply The Best’ by Noah Reid and country music is also really in at the moment.

What makes your service stand out?

We don't use any effects. Our live music is raw and organic — male and female vocals and live acoustic guitar.

What was your favourite wedding?

A wedding in the Tweed. The bride was in a wheelchair after an accident. We played the aisle song live and everyone was asked to look away as she arrived. When she got to the aisle, just the groom turned and looked at her, and she got out of the wheel chair and walked (struggled but powered through). It was the most magical experience we have witnessed, but incredibly difficult to sing through!

How would you describe the couples you connect with the most?

They’re down-to-earth and family-focused. We generally consider our couples friends, even if we’ve just met them.
