First Summer is a professional covers band, geared toward entertaining its fans with some of the best cover reproductions heard in Brisbane. But don't take our word for it!
"If you’re reading this – stop reading right now and BOOK THIS BAND!
The first time we watched First Summer play at a bar, we knew they were the band for our wedding – there wasn’t a single person sitting down while they were on stage. And at our wedding, it was exactly the same. The dance floor was full the whole night and my Mum won’t stop telling people about her special shout out. Post wedding, our guests continue to tell us that they loved our wedding because it was so full of love, laughter and fantastic music.
Don’t just trust me though; a lot of guests have also commented that First Summer were the best band they had ever seen at a wedding – which is saying something because my husband's from a big family and they go to A LOT of weddings.
BOOK THEM NOW! And thank me later!" - Amy, Britton/Efstathis Wedding, October 2016
"The band played at our wedding and totally rocked it! We asked them to learn a few songs and they did so without any hesitation and on the night really impressed everyone at the wedding! we danced until we couldn’t anymore and our dancefloor was packed until the very end! I’ve never ever see the crowd chanting for an encore but we all did and they delivered! Everyone was commenting on how good the band was and we had newly engaged couples asking if they could use the band for their wedding too! They kept the energy up and everyone had a boogie! 5-stars you guys smashed it out of the park!!!! Thank you so much guys!!!!" - Benny, Forgan-Smith/Yau Wedding, October 2016
"This band exceeded all of our (high) expectations. Having played in a band for 5 years, I was very anxious to find a good live band for my wedding, and these guys did not disappoint. Their performances were wonderful, even of the two songs they learnt on request, and their mix and sound quality was pristine. They had the dance floor over capacity from the very beginning, and so many of our guests (many of them musicians themselves) told us how great the band was. They have a diverse repetoire, suitable for multiple generations, and a great energy on stage. On top of all that, they were wonderfully relaxed and accommodative in the lead up to the event and were super friendly when we met on the night. Can’t recommend them enough." - Dilhan, Perera/Doyle Wedding, October 2016
"This band added such a great vibe to our wedding reception. Guests danced well into the night. Not only were they professional and experienced but they put on an entertaining and well polished show. I would recommend them to anyone wanting an incredible performance." - Zoe Cooper, Cooper/ Hendriksen Wedding, April 2016
"Thank you so much for your excellent performance at our wedding. We could not have imagined a better band, and all of our guests loved it. There have been ongoing compliments ever since our wedding day from our guests about how good the band was and how EVERYONE was getting into it. This band has an impressive and diverse repertoire, are good performers and interact well, are technically/musically excellent, have great sound, and are very professional to deal with. 10 out of 10." - Charles Pearce, Wedding, April 2016
"We can not speak highly enough of the band!!!! They were absolutely phenomenal and all our guests were raving about how good the music was too!
