Behind The Scenes With Local Sunshine Coast Musicians, Kristen and Chelsea From The Famos

Welcome to the third instalment of my Behind the Brand Blog Series.

This week I’m delighted to be introducing our all time favourite epic duo, Kristen and Chelsea from The Famos. This husband and wife pair play over 150  gigs every year as the Sunshine Coast’s premier wedding & events band. As an acoustic duo, their especially synchronised harmonies set them apart as not just two musicians thrown together, but a true duo singing and playing as one. They are mesmerising to listen to and boy can they get a crowd up  on the dance floor.

Kristen and Chelsea have been kind enough to share their insights and professional advice and allow us to get to know them and their company that little bit more…

1.Tell us a little bit about yourselves and your company? We are a husband-wife duo that provides musical entertainment for weddings and events all around the Sunshine Coast.

2. What do weddings mean to you? For most couples, weddings are the happiest days of their lives so far. We love being able to be a part of our couples special moments on such a special day.

3. As a professional in the wedding field, what are your 5 top tips to couples? 1. Enjoy yourself! The day goes super quick, so take a moment out here and there to appreciate it all. 2. Have live music!! Whether it’s us or another artist, live music can set the tone for the day and keep the momentum going. 3. Have your First Dance, right before you want the dancefloor to start with no gap in between. Even if you’re shy, do a 15-second dance and then invite everyone else up. This guarantees that your dancefloor with starts with a bang. 4. Book well in advance so that you don’t miss out on your favourite vendors. 5. Ask your other vendors for recommendations when choosing new ones. Many of them have been to 100’s of weddings and have seen the very best (and worst) of what is out there.

4. What are couple’s main questions and concerns when they approach you? The most common question we are asked by far is ‘Can you learn our special song?’. And the answer is yes! We will always run through a song to make sure we can do it justice before we guarantee it, but will always accommodate requests where possible.

5. What’s been the highlight of your career so far? We’ve had a lot of fun as musicians over the years, touring the US in a band, playing big gigs, but our favourite part is right now! Being able to have our two kids and still play music for a living is our dream!

6. What would you love to see more of in the wedding industry? More unique/creative ideas! Our favourite thing at weddings is when we get to see something new and unique that has special meaning to the couple themselves. (For example: one of our couples met singing karaoke and decided to include karaoke as part of their dancefloor music.)

7. Five things you’re both loving in life at the moment? Spending time with our two lovely daughters, living close enough to the beach to go there every day, going on walks and spending time out of the house so that we don’t go mad, doing live streams and fun little gigs from home, and doing what we love for a living!
