SILK is the most affordable quality wedding, party and corporate event band in Canberra.

We have brought live music to Canberra and the surrounding regions for over a decade and love performing.

Be it your own special day, an addition to your work function, charity event or other special occasion, SILK offers a unique level of musicianship, entertainment and repertoire. Our trained and experienced musicians, including graduates of the ANU School of Music, guarantee a top quality product at an affordable rate. We can offer an acoustic trio for ambience, a jazz trio to create atmosphere over dinner, and a six-piece, dance floor-filling party band playing all the greatest hits from the 60’s through to today’s modern music. SILK even has the capacity to add brass to take it to the next level!

Personalised packages

SILK is suited to grand stages and intimate rooms alike. Unlike bands with agents, you can book directly with us or find and follow us on Facebook or Instagram for updates. We care about our product, and work closely with you to find the right music for your event.

SILK can provide MC services and smaller ensembles to suit your needs, and we pride ourselves on our versatility and ability to create the right mood throughout your event. As you will see from our reviews, we understand what works and will customise an entertainment package to suit any occasion. We look forward to talking with you about how we can tailor a package specific to your event.
