Frequently Asked Questions
Can i request songs?
Jess & Steve acoustic duo are here to make your event magical and memorable. If there is a song or two you'd love us to play that is not on the list, whether it be a classic, pop, metal, rock, theatre or even a disney song, we would love to learn it for you. Please note one month's notice is needed for requests.
Do i need to select the songs for my event?
No you don't. You are however, more than welcome to select songs that you definitely do and do not want to hear. You may also email us if you'd like to see our set list.
How does the first dance music work?
If your first dance is choreographed and you would prefer to have the original song accompany you, we are more than happy to play this for you via iPod or smartphone on the night. Having said that, if you prefer a live version, we are more than happy to send you a recording of us playing your first dance song, that you can rehearse to. Steve is a skilled audio engineer and can produce a track for you, so you know exactly what it will sound like on the day! If you do not have a choreographed dance, we are more than happy to learn and perform your requested song.
Do you play both instruments the whole time?
Yes we do! However if you'd like us to strip the sound back, we are more than happy to just have guitar and vocals. If you'd like more of an intimate vocal and guitar sound for your ceremony but want to bring out the keyboard during canapes, we are more than happy to do that!
What if i don't have access to power?
There are a couple of options available, however we will need some more information about your event to let you know which options will be the most suitable. Please note that battery powered speakers and some generators do have time constraints of around two hours. Please note that this may incur an additional fee.
Can you perform without using your PA system?
No. If we perform totally unplugged, then nobody will hear us and the guitar will drown out the vocals. Even if it is a small event, unless you are right next to us, you will not be able to hear much. We are able to adjust the volume depending on the type of event.
Will you travel for my event?
Of course! Jess & Steve acoustic duo are Sydney-based, however we are more than happy to travel for your event. Please do note that accommodation, transfers or travel will incur an additional fee on-top of our packages for any event that is a considerable distance from Sydney CBD (Particularly if the event has a late finish).
