Vanilla was founded with a specific idea in mind – a slick, classy outfit to appeal to a sophisticated clientele.
Whether you are after a special tune for a special moment, laid back dinner music, or something funky to get the party started, Vanilla have got it covered!
Think Funk, Soul and R’n’B; from a commercial club vibe to thumping old school dance tracks, Vanilla has something for everyone.
With a sexy front woman with a powerhouse voice, and a band full of hot young things, Vanilla are regulars at some of Melbourne’s hottest spots, including St Kilda’s iconic Vineyard and a permanent residency at The Revellers bar on well known Chapel Street, Vanilla have plenty of live experience and know how to work a crowd.
With an already extensive repertoire which is growing all the time, Vanilla are also happy to consider special requests for your special day.
Available as a duo, trio, or quartet, Vanilla are also able to provide a much bigger ‘show’ of up to 8 players, with choreographed female backing singers, guitar and saxophone on request.
Vanilla provides a sound engineer, at no extra cost to guarantee a professional show
With something for everyone, Vanilla are the obvious choice for your next event!!
