"What a great sound this duo have, covering a broad and diverse range of music and obviously enjoying themselves at the same time. Great sound and great vibe!" – a recent review.
Blue Raine is a 'fun-making' duo playing popular upbeat songs and ballads that everybody attending will really love! Our setlists can be customised to include your favourite songs. We offer recorded music sets as well.
We cover songs from the 1950s to now - played with a fresh modern mix, and an upmarket style. A more polished sound than you have ever heard before - soaring vocals, brilliant guitar playing.
We are timely, organised & responsive so be assured of a great experience from the first moment!
Jaymi and Simon from Blue Raine have been playing professionally together for 4 years and have performed at a large number of private, corporate, and public gigs including Adelaide Festival Theatre, Mayfair Hotel, Hotel Victor, Prince Albert Hotel Gawler, Golden Fleece Hotel Gawler, The Glenelg Club (Glenelg Football Oval), The Pontoon Bar Adelaide (Melbourne Cup), The Stamford Grand (front bar and ballroom), Regal Theatre, Capri Theatre, RSL Clubs, Adelaide Town Hall, wineries, and numerous Cafes/Wine Bars etc.
Blue Raine is also very experienced in corporate events, and can include audio visual presentations and basic DJ sets within the mix. For example The SA Society of Auctioneers used us for their gala Awards night in 2017 for live music, an audio/visual presentation and motivational sound experience! The entertainment for the event was so successful (Gary Topp CEO quoted “their best ever”) that we were invited back to repeat it in 2018 and 2019 with the same impact!
We also do many different types of events such as weddings, balls, awards nights, functions/parties, corporate functions, Melbourne Cup. sports clubs, opening nights, pubs, charity events etc. We have also performed live on radio on a number of occasions.
Our music is particularly well suited to weddings and corporate events as the songs we play will be enjoyed by a very wide range of guests. You may wish to request your favourite song, which we can either play live or from the original recording. Typically we play for 45 minutes then have a break - however at weddings our breaks can be adjusted to suit the speeches, or other ceremonial events on the night.
If there are some special recorded songs that you want for your wedding dance, entry of the bridal party, or at other times, we can also create a play list for these too. Our singer Jaymi, is also a ballroom dance teacher so can advise on suitable song choices if you require assistance, though many couples already have something they love.
If you have somebody who wants to get up and sing a song, we can also accompany them or play a backing track if needed!
We strongly recommend that all communication with Blue Raine be kept within CrowdPleaser's secure quoting and booking platform. We can only guarantee deposits paid through the CrowdPleaser website. You should also make sure their quote includes their cancellation and payment terms.
We can fit into a relatively small area of about 2.5m by 2.5m, with speakers placed in appropriate locations around this. We provide a high quality QSC sound system including excellent speakers, mixing desk , microphones and associated equipment , leads etc.
Setting up usually takes an hour, including sound check, and packing up around 30 minutes. Our only critical requirement is a power point nearby!
We play re-mixed versions of songs from the 1950's to the current day. We often receive comments to say that our versions provide a completely new approach, - we sound fresher and more classy! This is due to the quality/sophistication of our sound, musicianship, and the attention we pay to getting our arrangements right. We tend to avoid playing the songs that you hear over and over, in favour of choosing songs from well known artists, that are less often heard.
Our set list includes recent songs from (for example) Selena Gomez, Adele, Flume (DJ), Portugal The Man, Beyonce, Dua Lipa and many others. We have also selectively sourced, emotionally-rich songs from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and beyond, including Prince, Fleetwood Mac, Carole King, The Animals, Spencer Davis Group, Jimmy Barnes, Roxette, Eagles, Beatles etc.
Amongst these there are plenty of upbeat songs, but also alluring melodic pieces that are ideal for more intimate venues, cocktail functions, wine bars etc. We can happily add requested material for particular themes – for example we recently played a masquerade party where the client wanted half a dozen Dean Martin songs in our set list.
