WHAT PEOPLE SAY

SUE & STEVE / DECEMBER 2019

We were very lucky to snag The Knave for our 30th wedding anniversary. He took care to understand our musical preferences and melded them with music that suited us and the demographic of our guests. Smooth sounds in the early evening morphed into great dance music as the evening wore on. Perfect ambiance all through the evening. Our guests were charmed. Highly recommended!

Amy B / FEBRUARY  2020

We booked The Knave to act as both Elvis celebrant and DJ for our wedding in Feb 2020. We had an absolute call. He sang Elvis songs and played the part of celebrant perfectly, and then he partied down with us and dj'd all night. Highly recommend!

KRISTIE & TIM / NOVEMBER 2019

The Knave was a ripper of a DJ. With such a wide array of knowledge and selections at his fingertips and the authenticity of working predominantly with vinyl, our wedding reception was the best party we could have imagined thanks to this top Melbourne wedding DJ.
