Social Media(tion)

We’ve performed at weddings more than you can shake a drum stick at! In this digital world, more and more couples are applying a strict “no social media” policy and we can understand why.

What if the Bride and Groom…

Lark on Tour – Stevie and Davi in Paradise

Lark Music had a pretty amazing . We got taken to a lot of spectacular places and have met some equally spectacular brides, grooms and guests (tough gig, we know). The inherent nature of an industry centered around ‘The best day of your life’ is always going to be that it’s overflowing with jaw dropping locations, decadence in abundance and general v.good vibes.

We can barely hold back the excitement of checking our diaries each Monday to find the pleasure of whose company we will be in that weekend. It could be the culinary king that is Vue De Monde,…

The answer was a exuberant band made up of the city's best musicians and singers. Performers who knew the modern stuff, who were in tune…
