Event Reviews - The Iconics Canberra wedding, corporate and special events show band
This band SERIOUSLY rocks!!! I discovered The Iconics about 18 months ago after I posted on a NSW Weddings Facebook page asking for recommendations for a band to play at our wedding. Someone pointed me in the direction of The Iconics. I watched their videos on YouTube and loved what I saw, so I reached out and asked if they were happy to travel to Billimari, NSW. Even though I had never seen them play live or met them until the big day, not once did I feel anxious. Adrian and Dave communicated everything with us very clearly from the start and the attention to detail that they paid was extraordinary, even down to the background music played on the day. And even more importantly, they were flexible and fun. The entire band were friendly and accommodating and they worked around the festivities of the night without batting an eyelid. This included things such as allowing us to use their microphones for speeches, accommodating our request for two acoustic sets (one where Dave walked around playing unplugged - fantastic) in the afternoon and then the full 11 piece band at night. The band appeared to have an absolute blast on stage and they had everyone up dancing all night, our guests absolutely loved it! Dave did a fantastic job as MC, several people have since told me that he was the best MC they have ever seen (and I completely agree). Also, a huge props to the sound crew and roadies who helped us throughout the evening with things such as setting up the signage and even loading wood into the fire buckets during the 30 minute rainstorm to keep them burning. Legends! Oh...and did I mention that this band rocks?! Their setlist was great! They played a wide variety of dance floor fillers that everyone loved and even, at our request, learnt Shotgun by George Ezra for our first dance. Reach out to Adrian and book these guys in, they will take your wedding or party to the next level and and you won’t regret it! We will be, without a doubt, booking The Iconics again, hopefully sometime in the near future…my 40th is a few years away yet so I just need to find an excuse to have another party. On behalf of Imogen and myself, thanks a million guys. Money well spent!

"My husband and I could not recommend The Iconics high enough. If you are looking for a band who will entertain, provide professionalism, have your guests off their feet and on the dance floor then The Iconics are for you.
Adrian and his band delivered such professionalism and attentiveness from the initial contact through to our troubles with a venue change. There was always such prompt response (even whilst Adrian was overseas on holidays) and he was always more than happy to work with us to achieve our requests. We truly felt he wanted to ensure he delivered the best quality possible for our day. We can honestly say our wedding day would not have been the same without The Iconics, and all our guests were blown away by the standard they delivered.
Thank you Adrian and The Iconics for making our wedding music dreams come true 🥂"

"We had the full 11 piece band at my 40th birthday a few weekends ago and were absolutely blown away with how engaging, how talented and how much they made my event the best we’ve ever thrown! We had a range of ages from 1 - 80 at the event and everyone of them commented on how wonderful the band was. The cutest comment from my 3 year old nephew asking if he could come to another one of my parties because it was the ‘best party ever’ really summed it up. Highly recommend them for your next event (unless it clashes with mine, because I want them back)."
- Shannon Smith (Birthday Party March 2023)
"This band has everything you need for an amazing party. Great music, great acts, and a Rocky horror show… the 3 best parties I have EVER been to (no exaggeration) have had the Iconics play."

The Iconics were able to perform at my 50th birthday on Saturday 12 November 2022, and they were amazing, above and beyond anything I hoped they would be! They made my party an event! From the first contact with Adrian (the Musical Director) everything was hyper-professional. The band did everything they said they would do and more and their repertoire is enormous. Every member of the band got into the theme for the night and they are all excellent musicians individually. They got everyone up and dancing and kept them there all night! They even helped me to find a perfect venue.
Our party guests are still raving about the quality of performance and the high level of entertainment and fun that the Iconics delivered.
"I couldn’t recommend The Iconics highly enough. From the very outset Adrian was the utmost professional, knowledgeable and helpful when booking the band to play out our wedding. Adrian soon became my logistics manager and support throughout the planning process. It was clear that he and the team had spent hours curating the perfect set list (and practicing) for our wedding day.
Despite some hiccups with the venue and a very rowdy crowd, the band were nothing short of amazing. They sounded (and looked)incredible and had everyone up and dancing. If you’re thinking of booking The Iconics for your next event - you will not be disappointed!!!

We had the Iconics out at the Tarago Show this year ,every comment received was enthusiastically exclaiming their fantastic performance, we intend to use them again and again for our show and for any other major events we may be holding that we can book them for. Outstanding entertainment and value for money.
- Wayne Baynham (Tarago Show Apr 2022)
"The entire (Iconics) team are extremely talented and know how to put on a great show. I would highly recommend these guys. We will be using them again for our corporate functions."

Have watched The Iconics on many occasions but most recently at Rose Cottage!. They are a fantastic, fun and talented band! Highly recommend you go see them at their next gig!
- Mathew Hoban (Facebook Follower Apr 2021)
The Iconics are a very talented, but also fun band, who put on an amazing show beyond just the music. They incorporate costume, crowd participation and story telling all to great effect, and their vocalists have a huge range and beautiful tones.
They have a vast back catalogue of banger songs spanning 7 decades, and are sure to have no trouble getting the crowd excited at any gig.

Great band! Awesome music! Would highly recommend going to see them! Saw them at the rose cottage on the weekend just gone and had a wonderful night! Great selection of the classics!
- Jacinta Kearns (Facebook Follower Apr 2021)
I saw them at Rose Cottage last weekend, they were great! they had the crowd up and dancing from the get go. Big shout out to the 3 lovely ladies and their amazing singing!
- Claudia Rodinsno (Facebook Follower Apr 2021)
Amazing band that never disappoints. Great song choices mixed in with creative performance and humor.
Became a instant fan after my first experience.

I saw The Iconics on the weekend at Rose Cottage. It was awesome! The band sound tight, had the crowd involved and were very entertaining.
- Celia Taunton (Facebook Follower Apr 2021)
The Iconics are fun, tight and never boring. Extraordinarily tight musically, this 11 piece band is musically rich and much more than the sum of its parts. Combining five brilliant singers (three female), a horn section which seriously swings, guitarists that deliver the legendary power cords, a keyboardist that hit every note perfectly and a drummer that drives the rhythmic engine, the Iconics bring alive all the great dance music from the last 50 years. Do yourselves the proverbial favour, get along to see these rockers play . . . you’ll have a great time dancing the night away.
- John McManus (Facebook Follower Apr 2021)
Awesome band something for everyone. Great Sound, not just the average cover band. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
- Jason Sazegar (Facebook Follower Apr 2021)
I watched them live at the burns club. it was a great experience and would definitely go again.
nice sound, awesome singing and the crowd interactions done well.
the band is larger, not a small 3 person band and I appreciated the number of instruments on stage.
I do recommend going to watch.
- Alan Anderson (Facebook Follower Apr 2021)
Saw these guys recently at Rose Cottage - big band, big sound, top tunes from every decade since the 50s and 100% recommended for a big night out! Do yourself a favour.
