What areas do you service? 

We are based in the Southern Highlands of NSW.   Most of the weddings and events we do are right here,  but we frequently travel to the South Coast area, and all locations inbetween.   We will happily travel to where ever you are.  An added cost may apply for travelling. 

Im not sure whether to get the Duo or Trio or the full band?

Live music will make any event really special.   Ellas Holiday is flexible so that we can be affordable for all.  It comes down to budget and the mood/vibe you are wanting to achieve.    A general rule would be the bigger the band, the bigger the sound.  Sounds simple, doesn’t it :)   Duos and Trios by their very nature are more intimate, thats not to say we cant still swing as a trio-we defintiely can!      For dancing -we would always recommend the full 5-piece Band. :) 

How long do you play for? 

We are a very hard working band.  Only taking short breaks between sets.  We work in with your schedule and play as much as possible .  During our breaks we can play music through our PA.   Over the course of a longer gig-some sustenance is always appreciated. :)

Will you learn a song for us? 

Yes, give us a little bit of notice and we are happy to. :) 

Can the band play outdoors? 

Yes, we can.  However our instruments cannot get wet, electrical cords don’t like it either..and instruments don’t cope with excessive heat, so on those warm days, shade will need to be provided and its always good to have a back up plan in case of rain.
