Appreciate this might not be what youre interested in, but I'm a blues/folk/jazz fan and i'm getting married near Byron on the Friday after the festival. Wondering if I can tempt anyone who's staying in town to play at my wedding reception for about 90 mins, for a few hundred dollars?
Let me know at mmtours@hotmail.com
Thanks

It would be great if you could attract Tom Waits, and as long as he was in the neighbourhood !

Being in the older age bracket,if money was no object,I would book the band who had a 30 minute spot in Apra at Bluesfest 2007,and whom I was grateful to find after fleeing the MOR Normie Rowe Show.
However,there will be numerous musical options in the area to suit all tastes.

"An artist never really chooses when and where they will play.It is for promoters to make offers.It comes down as to whether tours are financially viable." Quote John Mayall.

Now that sounds more like a gig that 'Cold Chisel' would be suited to..
they're only just starting out, so a wedding would be just about right for them.

Here's an old clipping to show what can be done,

O'Connell and Andrews tie the knot

IF music be the food of love, play on, and if there's a bit of mud around, all the better.

Those thoughts must have been lingering somewhere in the minds of Louise O'Connell and Tony Andrews last weekend as they exchanged marriage vows in the unlikely setting of the VIP tent at this year's East Coast Blues and Roots Music Festival in Byron Bay. This little corner of Belongil Fields serves as an exclusive retreat for the notorious and not-so-famous who attend bluesfest each year. One might spot a Kasey Chambers talking to a Pete Murray, for example, or a George Negus sharing a joke with someone whose face you recognise but can't quite put a name to. It's an opportunity to unwind and sink a few glasses and, you never know, strike up a friendship with one of the roadies from the Blind Boys of Alabama. Was it with those exciting prospects in mind that O'Connell and Andrews chose to tie the knot in the shadows of the hired pot plants just outside the VIP Porta-a-Loos last Saturday afternoon? Actually, no. The Sydney couple met at the bluesfest five years ago and thought it romantic to return, with 90 guests, for their nuptials. O'Connell looked lovely in her long golden wedding dress as the couple danced to a suitably romantic ode performed by two friends. Hopefully she changed into something less formal afterwards. This year's bluesfest was a celebration of mud and rain as well as great music. Dressing down was definitely the order of the weekend. The newlyweds aren't the first to confirm their love for each other within range of the main stage at a rock festival. Only last year English musician Peter Onyskow and his German betrothed Stefanie Michels combined their love of heavy metal and each other by getting hitched at the Download Festival at Donington Park in Leicestershire, after which they spent the night together doing what all newlyweds do: banging their heads to Kiss, Judas Priest and Motorhead.

AMONG the local and international acts at bluesfest was Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu, who was keeping a distinctly low profile given his new status as our most successful indigenous performer. Yunupingu was there to play with the Saltwater Band, his other gig of the past decade or so, not to promote his ARIA Award-winning solo debut album. The Saltwater Band is about to release a new album, although there's no saying when we'll be able to hear it. Word has it that Skinnyfish Music, the music label for both acts, cannot decide whether to use Yunupingu's success as a launchpad or to keep the two projects separate.

Well Bluesfest is picking up the bulk of the freight it's now up to JBJ478 to tie the ends together,

Hmm ... his Ukulele Songs album would be great at a wedding ... plenty of romantic lyrics.

Playing at Bluesfest the week prior would be a good warmup.

:)

why don't you just get married infront of your fave blues band @ the fest? not very original and you'd wanna do it early in the week before the fermentation stench sets in . . .
