Good vibes and epic dance floors… Our new tag line came to us in a recent interview we did with Australian same sex wedding directory Mr Theodore, when they asked us what we felt we were renowned for!
We sat down with Alexander from Mr Theodore and told him a bit more about the world of One More Song and how we work with wedding clients in the lead up to their big day.
Below are some excerpts from the Q&A interview and you can read the full article here.
Tell us about the process couples can expect selecting their music needs through you?
We provide an initial quote over email and usually meet with potential clients face-to-face to discuss details about their wedding, talk all things music and answer any questions they have. Once they’ve confirmed they would like to book, a 50 percent part payment locks in the entertainers, with the balance due two weeks before the big day.
During the lead up, we consult with clients to get a detailed music brief – what to play, what to avoid and key moment songs (eg entrances and first dance), as well as advise on the running sheet (for maximum dancing time!). We may meet with clients face-to-face again as well as liaise over email and phone. We also work with the venue to arrange set up of equipment and liaise with other suppliers (eg celebrants) as required. During the week of the wedding, we have a call with the clients to run over any last minute changes and final details!
What is unique about One More Song?
There are three key features that set us apart:
- we spend more time with our clients in the lead up to their wedding.
- we (the owners) are active in all facets of the business.
- we only work with entertainers who are reliable and easy to deal with (we have a strict “no divas” policy!).
Personally, what’s your favourite moment of a wedding?
The song played after the first dance – this is when the party really gets started!
Any personal favourite tunes you think couples should include in their mix?
So many to pick from and it does depend on personal preferences, but it’s always good to include classic wedding tunes everyone loves to dance to, like Ain’t No Mountain High Enough (Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell), something newer like Uptown Funk (Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars) and some disco thrown in for good measure – we love Shake Your Booty (KC & The Sunshine Band)!
