The Essentials

  • Up to 5 hrs at wedding reception, typically featuring 4 x 45 min sets
  • Tailored playlists provided in between live band sets
  • Full PA system and microphone provided for speeches if required
  • Option to personalize the setlist by selecting specific songs if desired
  • Option to have Bridal Waltz performed live – can be any song chosen by the client
  • PLEASE NOTE:  Venue locations that are more than 1 hr’s drive from Sydney CBD will incur an additional travel fee


Please Note: Prices are approximate and can be negotiated for specific situations… ie smaller venue, shorter gig duration ect…

A discount applies if other services are used.

How does the booking process work?

Our online booking form requires you to fill out your contact details and select the band line up you would like. If you’re not sure whether you’re after a 2, 3 or 4 piece band at this stage then just enter a tentative band size for the initial inquiry purpose or read the detailed info below…

2 Piece Band – A small acoustic option for laid back settings only

3 Piece Band – This option includes a female vocalist, a lead/rhythm guitarist and a drummer/percussionist and will be more than adequate to cater for most events

4 Piece Band – The 4 piece offers you the choice of an additional musician/instrument – either bass or keyboards. It will produce a much stronger sound so if you’re wanting a party/dance atmosphere this option is best.

Note: If you require a specific instrument ie. Saxophone, violin, banjo etc. to be included in the band line-up that is possible but it will need to be negotiated and discussed.

How long will the band be playing at my wedding reception or corporate event?

Prices include up to 5 hours attendance featuring 4 x 45min sets of live music, and background/”DJ” music on iPod controlled through our sound system during band breaks.

Please note, the 4 x 45min set times can be adjusted to fit in with your specific running sheet – that is, the 180mins total playing time can be positioned however you like.

The 5 hour duration satisfies most wedding reception and corporate event durations as most venues work to 5 hour packages – usually 6pm to 11pm, or 7pm to 12am. If you would like the band at your reception for a period longer than 5 hours, that is of course fine but an additional cost may be involved.

How does the band’s set up and sound check work?

It takes approximately 45 mins to fully set up and sound check the band. This additional time is not considered part of the 5 hour period and does not carry any additional cost.

Does the band travel? And how do the travel fees work?

Yes we do travel, but for events that take more than an hour to reach outside the Sydney CBD an additional travel cost will be charged – it can be discussed when booking.

What songs will the band play at my wedding or corporate event? Can I choose the music?

If you go to the Set list page on the site you have the option of personally tailoring the setlist by ticking the relevant box next to each song, bearing in mind that 4 x 45 min sets will usually be around 40 songs.

You can also request specific songs to be included in the playlists/DJ setlists in between the live music sets.

Do I get a discount if I book more than one service through your website?

Absolutely! The more services booked, the bigger the discount. I have specifically sourced boutique high end services that are in keeping with the level of professionalism Hey Sugar Music provides to make your wedding or event planning experience as easy and cost efficient as possible.


I have known Jaymai for 4 years both on a music business and personal level.  Throughout this time we have often crossed paths whilst booking gigs for musicians and running events – I have also attended a number of private events Jaymai has organized.

Jaymai always delivers a standard of excellence with her music, and is reliable, well presented, and sensitive to her audience.
Jenny Walsh The Coordinator of The Music Lounge/ Creator of Northern Beaches Youth Bands and Sydney Music Hub 

Jaymai Johnson is a wonderful, talented and highly professional singer, songwriter and performer. She will add a beautiful warm ambiance to any event. She organised a fabulous house concert in our home, and it was a brilliant night which will always be remembered.

Jaymai Johnson is the consummate professional musician and vocalist. I have worked with her on numerous recordings in her capacity as a singer and songwriter and find her easy to work with professionally and a joy to record as her vocal style is unique.

She is able to go with what the moment needs from sultry jazz right through to blues, pop and raunchy high energy songs.

A great versatile vocalist and an all round great entertainer.
