Voted the best wedding and corporate cover band, Mushroom Cloud has quickly established a reputation for providing the very best high quality performances. "Professional, Reliable and Entertaining" are words that are frequently used to describe Mushroom Cloud.

Introducing the band

James on lead vocals and rhythm guitar is the front man. His voice can be as smooth as Michael Bubble and as rocking as it gets. Simon on lead and Rod on vocal harmonies and Bass completes the guitar section. William complements the sound with smooth beats on the kits and Owen on backing vocals and the keys, with the classic Hammond organ or the concert piano, rounds out the sound.


Unique to Mushroom Cloud is the fact that they don’t bring in other musicians. The same 5 piece sound at every performance. They will, however, customize the songs to suit the event. They will even include your requests for that unique and individual performance including your special wedding song. Mushroom Cloud is the only band to be able to play Jazz music through to ACDC and everything in-between.



Mushroom Cloud is the only five-piece band to offer individual packages to ensure your needs are met.


Starting with the Gold package, Mushroom Cloud will ensure your evening is talked about for years to come with four hours of the finest covers available. This package also includes our Gold Lighting package.


In addition to the Gold package the Diamond package includes music played during dinner. Smooth Jazz and easily listening classics will ensure guests are in the mood to party well into the night.


Mushroom Cloud is the first to arrive and the last to leave for the Platinum package.  If first impressions matter to you, then why not impress your guests with smooth sounds of Michael Bubble or easy listening classics right from the moment your first guest arrives for their pre-dinner drinks. This package includes up to six hours of live music! Platinum also includes a lighting rig across the stage and specialist equipment to light the dance floor to ensure your guests dance well into the night.

All of our packages included DJ music played between sets.  There is nothing worse than having no music at all played whilst the Band takes a break.  Mushroom Cloud puts as much thought into their break music as they do in the set selections.


There are three things your guests will remember, how beautiful the bride looks, the food and the music.  If your idea of great music is an ipod or a live version of an ipod - a DJ, then Mushroom Cloud are the opposite.  They welcome requests and will play something for everyone from your best friends dance hits through to your creepy uncles Rock classics, your guests will remember your special day and that “great band”.

Mushroom Cloud is the only five-piece band able to learn you’re your first dance request, or play your special song as you entire the reception. Mushroom Cloud will work with you to ensure the music reflects you.

Unfortunately, Mushroom Cloud does not perform at every wedding they are invited to play at.  If your idea of a wedding celebration is a keg and ten mates in the backyard, they are not the band for you. The application process is simply. Tell us how many guests, the location and the theme for your wedding. Mushroom Cloud typically performs at weddings where the amount of guests is appropriate to the venue and the theme is elegant and sophisticated. Apply today and if your wedding is accepted, you will know that Mushroom Cloud is the perfect band for you.


A corporate event reflects the organisers and Mushroom Cloud

are well suited to events such as Ceremonies, Christmas parties, product launches, opening nights or fundraising; basically, any event that requires a lasting impression. 

Unfortunately, Mushroom Cloud does not play at just any event.  They only play at ones that they are suited for.  You are invited to tell us about your plans and if Mushroom Cloud excepts, you can rest assured knowing that they are the band for your event.


To keep up with the growing demand, Mushroom Cloud performs not only in Canberra, but also as far as Sydney and the south coast.  You will be pleasantly surprised at how little their touring packages are.



As a special offer, Mushroom Cloud are happy to include a Free Platinum Plus lighting package – enquire now for more details.
