TESTIMONIALS

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!

SUE & STEVE / DECEMBER 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.

KRISTIE & TIM / NOVEMBER 2019

The knave played at our wedding a few weeks ago. After a quick meeting with him before the day to discuss the night he arrived with a quality selection of tunes on vinyl that ticked all the boxes and had everyone up and dancing.
Thanks again Logan for helping make the night so much fun .

SAM & YUKA / October 2019

We were lucky to have The Knave DJ at our wedding!
He was awesome, and played a full set of groovy tunes which set the mood for a great celebration. the Knave was a pleasure to deal with, we had a few meetings before the big day, he got to know us and what music we liked. He was open to playing songs we liked and added these to his set. He was professional, entertaining and also a great MC. Thanks!!!

THEA & ERIC / JULY 2019

My wife and I had the privilege of having The Knave DJ our wedding a few weeks back, and were very impressed by his set on the night. We wanted a mix ranging from Rock and Roll, Northern Soul, Disco, Funk, 80s Pop and some classics, but didn't want it feeling like you didn't know any of the songs that were playing. The Knave hit the nail on the head. A fantastic mix between the hits, but also throwing in the odd unknown number, however it always flowed amazingly. We also gave him the hard task of playing some 50s and 60s Italian classics, and even a touch of Calabrian folk music, which he completely accommodated for. He is easily the best Melbourne Wedding DJ I have seen and I highly, highly, recommend The Knave for any function, and will be gladly commissioning his services again in the future.

M & M CUMMAUDO / MARCH 2019

“The Knave was a thorough professional, with a sense of fun at the fore throughout the day. The mood was perfect, as he accommodated our requests prior to the event and proceeded to meet and exceed our expectations with the perfect mix of his inspired selection. The Knave's authenticity shines through and his infectious passion for music was a highlight of our day."

M & D GOODCHILD / MARCH 2018

"We had The Knave play at our wedding and he was awesome. Communication throughout all the prep was second to none, and The Knave kept us posted on everything we needed to know. He also made our dance floor an awesome 60s freak-out! Loved it!"

LEO EDUARDO / NOVEMBER 2018

"We engaged The Knave as DJ for our recent wedding in Yarra Valley. This turned out to be the best decision we made for our memorable day as he was enthusiastic and the dance floor was always rockin’. He gave us a great DJ package for our wedding and delivered the best DJ tunes. He was also our MC and he did an awesome job of following our script at times and ad libbing it at others. The evening flowed nicely with a perfect mix of music to eat and chat by and music to dance to. We would recommend The Knave to anyone planning a wedding or other special event."
