DUNCAN MACKINTOSH - SOLO ACOUSTIC ARTIST

DUNCAN MACKINTOSH - SOLO ACOUSTIC ARTIST

Whatever the occasion or wherever the location Duncan MacKintosh will help create the perfect atmosphere for any event.

By any measure Duncan's experience as a professional musician is extensive. He has performed in bands that have included a number of well known Australian artists as well as being a member of the popular West Australian outfit Wax who after an eight year hiatus reformed in 2014 for a much anticipated reunion .

After serving his apprenticeship playing extensively throughout Western Australia Duncan moved to Sydney in the early 1990’s to further hone his craft. During that time Duncan gained a reputation as a talented, hardworking and highly professional musician.

“I have lots of great memories of my time in Sydney such as coming off stage one night and having to make the choice between going back on at the request of Alec John from Bon Jovi or meeting with an A & R rep from Mushroom records who had flown up from Melbourne to see us.”

Following a desire to build on his commercial knowledge and skills Duncan returned to Perth in the late 1990’s to compete a Bachelor of Commerce degree at the University of Western Australia whilst continuing to satisfy his love of playing music.

In 2000 Duncan decided to dedicate more time to his solo acoustic performances. Since then he has performed hundreds of gigs ranging from pubs and private functions to corporate events.

Duncan’s repertoire is full of crowd favourites with just the right balance of contemporary and classic hits as well a few unexpected surprises thrown in for good measure.

"I just wanted to thank you so much for your beautiful music at our wedding. Your music was a highlight of our day and we had so many comments from people about how good you were. I'm just sorry I never got the chance to actually come and meet you, I was in a pretty flustered frame of mind and before I knew it you were gone. So I just wanted to say a big thank you from Christian and myself, we were both very impressed and would recommend you to anyone." - Samantha Jolly

"Planning the entertainment, or any part of your wedding, is a delicate task; it has to be perfect, and Duncan contributed to it being exactly that! Whilst we were already fan's of Duncan's, watching him play around various Perth venues, his music knowledge, ability and creativity facilitated a beautiful and unique rendition of the songs we had chosen for him to play at the church, for the entry of the bride and the exit of the bridal party. We have no hesitation in recommending Duncan to play at your special day, or in fact any occasion requiring live acoustic entertainment, we certainly will be." - Roxanne & Richard Pappas

"Thank you so much again for everything. Your very special attention made our wedding even more special. Coming on the Friday night to work out the timing for the ceremony made me feel so much better and made the day work terrifically – thank you so much for coming this night and for giving us a sneak preview of ‘nothing else matters’ You did such a great job of this song, thank you so much for doing this for us. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and we heard people singing that ‘hanging on a moment’ song throughout the day. Your acoustic sets were fantastic, you have such a great voice and your song selection is perfect. Thank you so much for working in with Simon for the PowerPoint presentation. That was a surprise! You also had our song for our entrance and found that song for the Canadians which was awesome! You also nailed the DJ part. Thank you so much again for such a memorable day. You really did set the atmosphere perfectly relaxed and intimate. We had such a great time! We will definitely keep in touch and we hope you get some more business through our friends that attended as you definitely made a huge impression." - Ewan & Tanya Dickson

"I would just like to thank you very, very much for making the wedding of our only daughter so special.  Your voice is absolutely fantastic, and a lot of people were commenting to me about it. Even the DJ bit was really good even if you did not play 'Nutbush'!!. So many, many thanks." - Ken and Andrea Pontifex

"I would like to thank you so very much from both myself and Eve for the wonderful addition your music made to our wedding day. It was the perfect touch and you impressed us and all our guests. Eve would like to add an extra thank you for playing the extra songs at the end of the evening and for making our bridal waltz so memorable. It’s a shame we couldn't dance to save ourselves. Thank you again and if anyone from Perth asks about music for their wedding or function you will be the only musician I will recommend." - Troy and Eve Crozier
