We would just like to say that choosing Chameleon to do the evening entertainment for our wedding at Carlton Towers was the perfect ending to a magical day. We trusted their professionalism in the choice of music and they certainly didn’t let us down, people were dancing and singing along. The sound and lighting were spot on the voices blended beautifully. Thank you for a wonderful evening and would highly recommend chameleon for anyone’s up and coming event.

What is your competitive advantage (special features)?
We have a huge repertoire and don't work to a fixed playlist, preferring instead to adapt to our audience and pick/choose songs as an evening unfolds. This allows us to do our best to keep the dance floor full all night. With such a large repertoire we have songs to suit all tastes and we don't take breaks between songs. Once we start playing, we don't stop until the end of our set.

My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
We're always happy to talk to clients about the prospect of us learning their favourite songs.
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
Our breaks and the length of breaks is wholly dependent on the planned itinerary of the event at which we're playing. That said, we try to offer as much live music as possible and keep breaks to a minimum.
Our repertoire is huge and as such, we don't use a fixed play list. We prefer instead to watch our audience and chop/change songs to suit who we're playing for and in an attempt at keeping the dance floor full. The song in our repertoire span every decade and within this you can expect to hear a whole host of classic dance floor hits.
For weddings we are able to provide music for the entire day including the wedding ceremony itself, afternoon reception, wedding breakfast and of course the wedding party. We're not limited to weddings though as we've played at a great many corporate events and charity fund raising balls.
Although we don't have a fixed playlist, here's an example of some of the songs we regularly play.
Can't take my eyes off you
Mack the knife
Crazy little thing called love
9 to 5
Dance the night away
My first, my last, my everything
You should be dancing
Can’t stop the feeling
I will survive
Ain't no stoppin' us now
Blame it on the boogie
I feel good
I heard it through the grapevine
All about that bass
You should be dancing
I want you back
Shut up and dance
Higher & Higher
Dancing in the Street / Get ready
Forget You / Moves like Jagger
Long train running
Dancing on the ceiling
Johnny B. Goode / Great balls of fire / I saw her standing there
Town called Malice
Signed sealed delivered
We are family
Shake your body down to the ground
Summer of ’69
You can call me Al
Walking on Sunshine
Don’t look back in anger
Sex on fire
Brown eyed girl
All night long
Other regularly played numbers include:
Groove is in the heart
Hold my hand
How will I know
Is this love
I wanna dance with somebody
Let's stay together
Move on up
Never too much
