  • James was a dream! We got excellent compliments on the entertainment for the night, and he was so wonderful to work with.

    Palace Cinemas

    James Marris was great on our wedding day, such a nice guy and so talented. He does acoustic and DJs and was perfect on the day. Would recommend!

    Jackson Eade

    We went with James Marris for our Wedding and he was everything we could have wished for and more. We are so grateful to have had him be part of our day. It’s like he read my mind regarding what we wanted, he just absolutely nailed it! He is so so talented on his guitar and the dance floor absolutely went off when it came time for him to DJ. And to top it all off he is just and all round good person!! So warm, lovely and approachable. Couldn’t have imagined it any other way, he made our music dreams come true! Having great music was a big priority for our day and I could not recommend James and Unplugged any higher. I wish we could do it all again!

    Bek Simpson

    A big thank you to Unplugged Entertainment and our artists, James Marris and "Max on Sax" for providing the BEST wedding entertainment. Everything was fantastic and our guests are still raving about Max and how he worked the dance floor! Couldn't recommend both artists any more.

    Teghan Rawson

    I have had the pleasure of working with James for many years now. He is the ultimate professional with unbelievable personal qualities. Has never been short of amazing, he is always punctual and joy to be around. James has a great quality in building a strong rapport with staff and guests which makes their experience second to none. To top it off, his talent is among the best in the business leaving guests wanting more. Anyone who works with James will share the same view as I do.

    Justin Dixon - Melbourne Storm

    Everything went amazing with James! He was everything I wanted and MORE, I only wish I had more videos! He played acoustically for our ceremony, canapés and dinner. We also had him be our DJ during our reception. Thank you so much Leighton for helping coordinate everything for our special day!

    Luisa Cruz

    James was a massive hit and would recommend unplugged entertainment to assist in any event you are planning.

    Billy Matthews

    We absolutely love having James play in our Legends Lounge for Carlton home games. We always receive such positive feedback from our members. James is a delight to listen to and really sets a great atmosphere for our pre game functions

    Elly Ivill - Carlton FC

    James was our singer/DJ/MC - a triple threat! He didn't need us to explain anything and was great as taking cues from our celebrant and event coordinator. We're both avid music lovers so our song requests were quite vast in genres, but James knew how to read the crowd and get people up and about. Thank you guys for making our night memorable!

    Sandy Ho

    James Marris, was wonderful, delighted our guest's, brilliant vocalists accommodating and great with children, James entertained us all with his beautiful voice, I would definitely book him again, Thank you James for your time and professional manner, you made my son's holy communion that much more special, their wasn't a person who didn't approach us to compliment you, on your performance and your lovely manners thank you again 🙂.

    Giganto War

    We hired James as a solo act and DJ. He was an absolute superstar and sounded incredible. His DJ sets filled up the dancefloor and he helped to make the night one that we'll never forget. I can't thank Leighton and James enough, and I highly recommend them.

    Treena Lord

    We cannot thank James Marris enough for the amazing vibe he created at our wedding ceremony. His singing was absolutely phenomenal and we so grateful to have had him present for our special day!

    James, Leighton and the team at Unplugged were fantastic throughout our entire wedding lead up. Thank you for everything - we cannot recommend James and the company highly enough!!
