If you’re looking for a band that will kick your wedding reception into high gear then look no further. The Racketeers bring such a lively energy to their performances. They sing a diverse mix of uptempo songs that will really bring your wedding reception to life.

The Racketeers’ song list comprises a number of choices that are a fun fit for a wedding reception, including ‘White Wedding’ by Billy Idol, ‘What I Like About You’ by The Romantics, ‘I Got a Woman’ by Ray Charles and ‘The Only Thing that Looks Good on Me Is You’ by Bryan Adams. These songs all capture the sentiment of love in their lyrics while also being fun to dance to at the same time.

When you're ready to pull your loved one in close, The Racketeers can take the tempo down a notch to perform such beautiful tunes as Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together’ and the popular first dance classic, Van Morrison’s ‘Have I Told You Lately’. Then they can switch to the soul song ‘My Girl’ by The Temptations for the father-daughter dance. ‘You’re Just Too Good to be True’ by Frankie Valli is a good transition number to get the rest of the wedding party to join in, as it starts off slow before kicking into a song that makes everyone sing along at the top of their lungs.

The Racketeers amp it up to get the whole wedding reception dancing along with uptempo rock and pop numbers. With the lyrics, ‘We’re gonna have a party, It’s starting tonight’, Lionel Richie’s ‘Dancing on the Ceiling’ is a great way to kick-start the party before transitioning into more upbeat numbers for everyone to dance around and celebrate to.

The Racketeers really put the fun in funk when they perform 'Uptown Funk'. Sunny pop numbers include DNCE’s ‘Cake by the Ocean’ and Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’, while Hayden Blaby’s earthy tones will see you rocking out to Australian anthems such as AC/DC’s ‘You Shook Me All Night Long’ and Melbourne’s own ‘Are You Gonna Be My Girl’ by Jet.

The Racketeers' dynamism knows no bounds. In this charming performance of Keith Urban’s ‘Somebody Like You’, Hayden Blaby perfectly captures Keith Urban’s country twang. This is one of Hayden's favourite songs to perform and it makes a perfect accompaniment to wedding receptions in regional Victoria.

With the wide range of song styles that the Racketeers can effortlessly turn their hand to, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Whatever style you do choose, you can guarantee that The Racketeers will bring the fun to your wedding reception.
