Four musicians, each versatile and hard working, perform together to bring the gig to life time after time.

"Where do we begin! Having Detour at the wedding was unreal to say the least. Live music and all of the well-known bangers you guys played just brought such a good vibe and there was a song for everyone! Relatives I didn’t expect were getting amongst the d-floor and absolutely loved it! The band was the absolute highlight of the night and we have had so many comments from guests since about how much they enjoyed it and how great the band were. It was the perfect way to celebrate what we felt was a perfect day, after a good year of wedding planning."

-Claire & Richard Wedding, Willie Smiths

Everyone had a great time  I very much appreciated the ease of booking you guys and your professionalism. Will definitely keep you in mind for future events. Thanks again!"

-Kiara & Simon

"We made a great choice in hiring Detour for our wedding reception. With just a little bit of messaging back and forth, the band was able to take care of the rest and, with an event like a wedding, the less we had to worry about, the better. The band interacted really well with the audience and always kept people dancing. We are very happy we had Detour to entertain us and our guests, and the entertainment they provided contributed plenty to making our wedding day perfect."

-Anthony & Jessica Johnson Wedding, Launceston

"Detour were absolutely incredible at our wedding! They had a killer set list that got everyone up and dancing, the dance floor was packed all night. There is nothing quite like the atmosphere created by a band as skilled and energetic as Detour, it was electric. The vocals and instrumentals were absolutely spot on. We have had so many guests from the wedding ask us who they were and how they can get a hold of them! We cannot recommend them highly enough!"

Our guests and us had an amazing night and they really got the crowd dancing. We have had numerous compliments about the choice of band since our big day. Thanks Detour."

-Anna Lennard

"Detour know how to help people party! From the minute they started their first set to the two encore songs of the third, everyone was up dancing and having a boogie on the dance floor. Their timing and choice of songs were spot on and we wouldn’t have wanted anyone else playing at our wedding. Friends and family are still telling us how great the band was."

-Alice & Richard Wedding, Peppermint Bay

"Detour were great to work with. They were flexible, accommodating, and able to fit around the proceedings the entire night. Great selection of songs that allowed the delegates to dance through to the very end of the evening! The significant number of positive comments the following day was a sure sign just how much they were appreciated! Perfect band for our conference dinner."

-Colin Clark, Convenor
