Playing Acoustic Music at you Wedding

Bunbury Entertainment Agency receives many inquiries for Acoustic Musicians - acoustic music solely or primarily uses instruments that produce sound through acoustic means, as opposed to electric or electronic means. The retronym "acoustic music" appeared after the advent of electric instruments, such as the electric guitar, electric violin, electric organ and synthesiser.

Performers of acoustic music often choose to increase the volume of their output, including using a full drum kit, and therefore require a larger PA. These amplification devices remain separate from the amplified instrument and reproduce its natural sound accurately. Often a microphone is placed in front of an acoustic instrument which is then wired up to an amplifier.

BEA's acoustic artists generally use amplification to maximise the projection of their voice and music. Please be aware that amplification is advised in the majority of circumstances, especially for outdoor settings. Without amplification, your musician will hardly be heard beyond a very short radius of the ''stage'' – so your guests seated or standing more than a few metres from the musician are unlikely to hear anything.

Remember – outdoors you are competing with a lot of external sound – you may also require microphones for your guests to hear you say your vows...

Acoustic instruments most suited without amplification are violin, banjo, cello, and possibly flute. NO VOCALS are suitable without amplification.

To hire a acoustic musician for your wedding or event please speak to Diane and Peter at Bunbury Entertainment Agency.
