Your Wedding Singer Perth

Josh Johnstone is Your Wedding Singer..  With 20 years experience as a musician, specialising in weddings and corporate events, Josh has performed at over 400 weddings and boasts one of the largest song repertoires in Perth. Rather than using backing tracks, his live solo performance features vocals, acoustic guitar, stomp/beat box and loop pedal, which is paired with top quality audio equipment to produce a full sound that keeps the party on the dance floor where it belongs!

Depending on the size of your event, Josh can perform solo, or with his duo, trio… all the way up to a 6 piece band, which features a female singer and some of Perth’s best musicians. Josh’s accompanying musicians are all not only WAAPA trained (Western Australia Academy of Performing Arts), but have been also playing with Josh for several years, so you can expect nothing but the highest quality whichever lineup you choose.

As well as both stripped back acoustic and uptempo party music, Josh also offers a DJ service as part of all Your Wedding Singer packages and also has an interactive Photo-booth available for hire.

DUO:

  • Our wedding was wonderful but we honestly cant Thankyou enough! Your music, voice, professionalism were all amazing and we had so many comments about how good you were. You really helped make our wedding something to remember. We thank you so much.

    Gemma Willison (Wedding client, October 2018)
  • Thanks for playing at our wedding. The day couldn’t of been more perfect! Thank you so much for everything Josh.

    Claire & Russell Biggs (Wedding client, March 2019)
  • Thanks so much for everything on Saturday. The songs at the ceremony were awesome, was so happy, completely added to the atmosphere. All our guests had such a great time at the reception also. You did very well to handle all our guests requesting a million songs! You played everything we asked for so that was perfect and the dance floor was so much fun.

    Kelly & Jason Canigla (Wedding client, January 2019)
  • The Audience was delighted. The bands performance was extremely professional, the music was entertaining and was played at a perfect volume. I would highly recommend Josh and his band for corporate events

  • Josh sang solo for us while people gathered for our ceremony then played with his band throughout our reception and was amazing. Had a large range of songs to choose from and even altered one particular song upon our request. Had the party going throughout. The guests loved it and danced the night away. He even did some DJ work for us later in the night. Communication was excellent in the lead up to the wedding which was so important with so much to organise. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

    Craig & Emma Strachan (wedding client, 2018)
  • Just wanted to say thank you so much for last night! You were fantastic and just seemed to play the right songs for this group! Thanks again Josh.

    Melissa Casey, Event Director. Directions Conference & Incentive Management. November 2018
  • I have booked Josh for both private parties as well as for larger scale events, as a solo performer and also with his band. Josh has an amazing ability to “read the room” which ensures he performs the exact songs to get everyone up and dancing. I cannot recommend Josh highly enough. He is very easy to work with and always puts on a great show. I am actually in trouble with my 6 year old son at the moment for not booking Josh to play at his recent birthday party! So, his ability to entertain all ages is second-to-none. Thanks Josh.
