Singer/songwriter, Larissa McKay is the perfect option for live entertainment for your wedding. She has been playing music for weddings in NSW and QLD for the past seven years.
Between her and her partner Jake, they can look after the whole event from start to finish – the wedding ceremony, canapés, reception including the first dance. Larissa plays piano and sings for the ceremony, then Jake can join her on percussion for canapés and the first half of the reception up until speeches or the first dance. Then typically they switch over to DJ for the last part of the reception.
Live, they play hits from the 60s through to current hits including The Beatles, Katy Perry, John Mayer, John Legend, Bruno Mars, Coldplay to mention a few.
Between the two of them they create a warm and grounded seamless atmosphere moving between offerings with ease and professionalism.
Larissa is happy to learn new songs for you, or she can offer some suggestions if you’d like hand curating the song choices for the day including the ceremony songs – entry, signing the papers and exit. For reception – the bridal party arriving, first dance, father/ daughter dance, couple exit song and the final song of the night.
Larissa and Jake both DJ and have a tried and tested playlist that they can share with you, or you can create your own. They ask for no-go songs and artists as guests are able to make requests. They love playing tunes that get the dance floor packed and have a wide and extensive pool of songs to draw on so it’s not just all cheesy and expected.
They both also MC the wedding reception and together between live music, DJ and MC, can keep the evening running on time and smoothly, liaising with the kitchen and guests doing speeches so that the couple can completely relax knowing that everything is taken care of.
Larissa and Jake love creating the perfect day for you through music, song and atmosphere and love working with couples to make their dream into a reality.
Larissa loves the quote by Maya Angelou, “People won’t remember what you said, but they will remember they way you made them feel”, and this is exactly spot on for music at a wedding. Music is there to create a mood – fun, loving, warm.. and this is something the duo do really well.
