Archie Rye Trio

Extremely popular Brisbane based trio. Very easy to work with and cater to your needs. Ranked 5th for band of the year in the 2011 Australian Bridal Industry Academy Awards. Book ahead to avoid disappointment!


This band played at our wedding in sept 2013 and everyone was blown away at how great they were. There was always people on the dance floor, i found it really difficult when looking for a band who wasn't a cheesy wedding group. With aechive rye we were able to have lots of well known tunes that old and young guests could dance to. We also requested that the band play our wedding song for us, it was 'we' by the descendants and we knew it would sound so much better live and it did. The band had no trouble learning the song, it sounded amazing and was a real crowd pleaser. I highly recommend this band.
