Looking to hire a wedding band?
Chunky Jam would love to be considered for your wedding. The band has performed well over 250 weddings and would love to be part of your special day.
Chunky Jam know your wedding day is a big deal and they want to provide you with the best live music available, and get it right for your and your guests.
In any wedding you are guided by the venue, food service times and speeches. If you consider Chunky Jam for your big day, we can organise a time to sit down with you and discuss the event in full so you can have as much band time as possible, and work with you closely to ensure we play your favourite songs and have people dance the night away.
Chunky Jam’s goal is to make your wedding the best it can be, so at the outset we will discuss what kind of wedding you want and present you with all the options, possible add-ons and ways you can save money.
Why risk your wedding with any other band ?
Remember the entertainment at your wedding is vital and can make or break the night. When you book Chunky Jam, you can feel certain you are getting a premium band with all the options you’ll ever need plus great advice and service.
Chunky Jam can customise their performance sets to suit your event however they regularly perform 3 x 45 min sets and an optional 30 min dinner set plus ipod music in-between sets.
SPECIAL BONUS FOR WEDDINGS: Chunky Jam will also happily learn up to 3 songs for your special day.
LINE UP OPTIONS:
Chunky Jam often performs as a compact 6-piece lineup featuring vibey male and female vocals, keyboards, guitar, bass and drums. For more impact we can add additional female lead vocalists, giving you more glamour and variety, as well as an optional horn section, starting from a single saxophone or trumpet, through to a 4 piece horn section for the full show band sound. Serious party vibes!
Chunky jam can provide a high quality PA, lighting and crewing for events of all sizes, at very competitive prices, and much cheaper than 3rd party AV suppliers. The band regularly saves organisations thousands of dollars in this regard. Ask us how we can save you money.

ADVICE & SUPPORT:
Chunky Jam’s management have many years of experience in running and producing events of all styles and sizes.
Just a quick thanks for organising Chunky Jam for Friday night. As usual they nailed it. Everyone always raves over a great band, so glad we went with the best.Donna Jenkins Executive Assistant | Tobin Brothers Funerals
Please pass on my thanks to Chris and all the members of the band. They were an absolute delight to work with – Jane my stage manager commented how nice they were to work with at the NGV last year for the Property Council and how lovely they were again this year. They did a great job getting people onto the dancefloor!Victor | Victor Goldsztein Event Management
I just wanted to provide some very positive feedback on the band Chunky Jam. Chris the lead singer introduced himself to me when I arrived to the venue early and I found him to be extremely friendly and professional.
I have to say the band were brilliant and all of the feedback verbally and through a survey of participants has produced extremely positive comments from our employees who attended. This is the first year we have had a band at this event, usually we have a DJ, but most of the comments have been that the music played was a good broad mix. It is not usually difficult to get people from UniSuper up on the dance floor, but the measure of success for me was the fact some of the Executives who never get up, did and the fact that often the crowd thins out not long after dinner usually, saw a larger number of people stay later in to the night, if not until the end.
From the Entertainment Committee perspective, we were very happy with the outcome and would not hesitate to recommend Chunky Jam to people and possibly consider using them again if this was a decision we made to go down this path again next year.
Many thanks againStuart - UniSuper
Thank you for all your help with booking Chunky Jam for the above event. It is always a pleasure to work with you.

I hope you all have a successful end of the year and a great break to recharge for 2018.Victor Goldsztein
Thanks for everything mate! Please pass on our thanks also to Steve (at Instinct I think) for looking after us given the contact and recommendation came through Rob Kirk. The chunky jam band and you made our wedding a great party. I sent this note to Chris earlier – they were fantastic!

Hi Jon,A. Smith
Just wanted to say thanks for organising Chunky Jam for the Young Producers Event last night.
They were great, an absolute pleasure to work with, and very professional considering the circumstances of bumping in. Chris is a great lead for the band and made a real effort to make sure everything was going well.
Would certainly recommend them for future events.
It went really well thanks! The band was great – a really nice group of people to work with. Very professional, very flexible and the guests had a great time interacting with them!
Thanks again for another great recommendation!S. Hart
Hi Steve,S. Mikkelsen
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Chunky Jam and of course yourself for making our wedding day so special. The boys did a fabulous job and the guests can’t stop talking about them.
Hi Richard I have been meaning to email you to say your band was FANTASTIC!!!!A. berryman
We have had nothing but wonderful comments. The guys on the night were so great to deal with and we were so appreciative of their entertainment and energy.
Would highly recommend them and we have even thought about having a similar function in another 2 years.
Thanks to Bella in the office who was a delight to deal with.
Was a very successful function. Achieved everything we wanted. The band was perfect and provided the entertainment we wanted. Thanks again.C. Fero
I would like to pass on a huge thank you to the band Chunky Jam who played at our wedding at the Sandringham Yacht Club in January. They were brilliant and talented musicians who played perfectly. We could not have hoped for better musicians and we are so grateful for their professionalism on the day.
I am so happy to recommend them to anyone. They made our day extra special.
Big thank you !!!!V. Poynton
We all had a blast
Just wanted to touch base and say a huge thanks for your help in recommending and organising Chunky Jam to play at last nights event. The group absolutely loved them! They were professional, well dressed and above all played awesome music and read the crowd to respond to their needs. Please pass on my thanks to the entire band. Also please let the female singer know that her dress was the envy of all the girls in the room – she looked amazing!Monique Lill
Thanks so much – can’t wait to use the band again at the next opportunity with other clients in Melbourne!
I just wanted to say thank-you for organising Chunky Jam for our ball
on Friday night. They were absolutely fantastic, and everyone loved
them. Their professionalism and helpfulness made the night so much
easier and enjoyable.
Please pass on my thanks to all the members once again.A. Proietto
It seems like ages ago, but I just wanted to say a VERY BIG thank you to yourself and the boys from Chunky Jam duo (Guru V) – they were just awesome at our wedding and we have had so many comments about how great the music was! Everyone was up dancing and the vibe was just brilliant, so please thank Chris (and the other guy – sorry can’t remember his name)S. Nilson
We will have no hesitation in getting them again should we ever have another function.
I just wanted to write a note to say thanks so much for recommending such a fabulous band! Chunky Jam was so much fun and absolutely made the night for everyone (including a few of our staff who couldn’t stay away from them!!!). If you could pass our thanks on to Chris and the band, they were a pleasure to work with!
Thanks again Richard, I will definitely be in touch next time we have an event that requires entertainment.K. Wharton
Great night…. Chris from chunky jam introduced himself and the night rocked… ! !! All went well.R. Panagiotidis
I just want to say thanks for all your help with Chunky Jam. They were both fantastic and I have received nothing but positive feedback about them.
Chunky Jam were amazing! They were really flexible with all our timing issues (Ran a bit late) and all the song requests. They even accommodated one of our more infamous delegates when we all asked them to get him to ‘sing’ Highway To Hell, which was a big hit.
Please pass my thanks and praise onto Chris and the band. Thanks again. I will be sure to be in touch next time we’re in Melbourne for an event like this.Fiona Wilkie
Gday Chris and Rich
I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say a HUGE thanks to you and your band (Chunky Jam), all guests commented that the band was great and really knew how to get everyone up dancing and it made the night perfect. Kate and I were stoked.
The 2 highlights for us were the roaming Busta Move and the Beautiful Day song for our entrance, you timed it to perfection.
We will definitely be recommending you to all people planning a wedding and a guest (the bloke in the pink tie on the dance floor all night) has requested your details for his 60th later this year.
Thanks again for being a huge and successful part of our big dayLeigh and Kate Kennedy
Dear Richard and your team,
Thank you so much for lining up Chunky Jam for our wedding party at the Harbour Room in St Kilda. The band was first class, we didn’t stop dancing, and the party was fantastic. They were so professional and picked the playlist perfectly. I won’t forget the last song they played – ‘Cosmic Girl’ – which was a great way to end the night.
Thanks for your assistance and chats on the phone to help us narrow our choice down.Caroline and Spencer
First day back at work today. Can you please pass on our thanks to Chris and the rest of the band (Chunky Jam) – they were really really great at the wedding, we had a great night! They also got lots of comments from our guests.Christine
I would like to say a big thank you to your team and especially Chris & Chunky Jam for putting on an amazing performance for our wedding.
They were superb in how they went about the night. We had a ball and feedback from everyone was that they really set the tone. I am sure there will be plenty on enquires for them based on our Wedding @ Carousel.
Great guys who we will be referring everyone to.
The Chunky Jam guys played at Richard and my wedding and I just wanted to drop you a line to say how great they were! They kept the dance floor pumping all night and I’ve had so much positive feedback from our guests about them.
Please pass on our huge thanks to the guys for helping to make the night such a fun one!!Kirsten
Just wanted to write and say thank you for your help with our wedding! We had such a great day and everything went to plan.
Avatar and Chunky Jam were fantastic! They music at the ceremony was perfect and everyone was up and dancing at the reception. Just what we wanted!Ruthanne & Ralph
Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your entertainment assistance which you provided for our Christmas party. The Caricaturist was fantastic and everyone loved and admired his work. Would like to also thank the boys from “Chunky Band”, they were fantastic and the crowd loved them…….”best party ever” was the comment from staff!.I.Garripoli
Thank you and much appreciated
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Chunky Jam for playing at our wedding on December 1st. They were by far the best wedding band I have ever seen. I may be a bit biased as it was my wedding but I have had so many guest say the same thing. I do believe at least one has even booked you for their daughters wedding. Rich thanks for your organisation and Chris thanks for being not only a fantastic singer, but a lovely guy as well. The band made the night and I can't thank you enough." –Rachel Hunt Rayner, Rex Hunt Enterprises Pty Ltd
Firstly, thank you so much for a fabulous week! It really came together for us. I have been raving about you and your acts to the Melbourne office, the CSE staff and basically anyone who will listen. It really did feel like you (and Steve Ward) were an extension of the Arinex team. There is a much nicer, more official thanks coming to you in our wrap up!H.Fremlin
Hi Richard,Our Event went really well. Thanks very much. The band were great. Chris had problems with his voice, but did as much as he could – even getting two of our Parents up to help out. Great service!Narelle McNamara
Chris and Chunky Jam trio doing their thing, they were bloody great. Crowd loved them, client loved them (probably more importantly!)
