Star for a Night is ideal for…
How does it work?
You can choose songs from our Set Menu or you can request a special covers song that we’ll learn especially for you. Prices vary based on what you want to do.
Also you’re not going to just rock up and wing it – we’re professionals! So all our packages include vocal rehearsals and a sound check run through on the night.
What you get:
A detailed conversation with us about how the song/s will be structured,
1x 30 minute vocal rehearsal with our guidance
A recording of the vocal rehearsal/s to use as basis for individual practice
A written form of the song with instructional notes
1 x 45 min band rehearsal at the sound check on the night
Additional rehearsals can be arranged and held at our rehearsal space in Whitby and are an extra charge at $50 per rehearsal.

We will provide you with recordings of how we play the song so you can practice alongside us (beginnings, endings and solos may vary from the original)Enquiry
When can I perform on the night?
Whenever you like! You can kick the party off with a BANG if you want, or we can warm up the crowd before you come on. If you’re choosing 3 songs from our set list then these could be placed together or spaced out across the sets. It’s up to you, but there will be a plan and no surprises for you on the night.
Who can I perform with?
You can perform with someone if you wish, providing that person has also been to the rehearsal with the band. If you want to perform with a musician as well as the band, the same applies, they’ll need to rehearse with us once, so that everyone is clear about who is doing what.
Can I use the gear provided?
We can provide you a microphone and stand which will be hooked up through our sound system, giving you foldback so you can hear yourself clearly. The same applies if you’re playing an instrument.
How many songs can I sing?
You could choose 3 from our song menu or request that we learn a new one just for you or even a combination of both. If you’re looking to do more songs than 3-4 then we can work out an individual quote.
How do I choose a song?
Great question! ‘Wisely’ – is the answer! Make sure it’s a song that is in your register (you can hit all the notes), one that doesn’t have too many instruments that we can’t replicate easily (full orchestras, piano, violins, saxophone etc) and preferably one that people will know and enjoy. Please note songs will not be an exact [replica/rendition/copy?] of the original song due to our band being a three piece comprising drums, bass and one guitar.
How long do I have to make a decision?
Final song selections need to be made with a minimum of 8 weeks before the event, this is when the band will start learning and rehearsing any new songs so you can’t change your mind after that time. There is more flexibility with songs from our set list however the decision must be made no later than 4 weeks prior to the engagement when you will have a rehearsal with the band.
