Salacious exploded into the music scene in early 2012. Originally formed by a group of passionate and talented close friends. Individually we are exceptionally trained musicians but our friendship allows us to produce a synergy that separates us from many other bands, which use temporary musicians to fill spots. Our strengths are most evident when our presence ignites the stage.
As a group of close friends we enjoy performing together and work to spread our positive energy that creates a dynamic atmosphere the crowd feels. Our reward is seeing people have a good time, enjoying the music, smiling, dancing and creating memories to be shared.
Due to our popularity across the live music scene many couples that have witnessed us on stage have provided us with the honor to perform at their wedding. They informed us that they wanted a band that wasn’t solely focused on the music but also a band that could provide a quality performance as well as include the crowd to create an overall magical event.
Our popularity on the live music scene has now also become a reputable force in the wedding scene. If you would like to find out more, visit our wedding section for information and testimonials.
Having performed in some of Melbourne’s premiere venues and have even performing gigs overseas has really allowed us to grow in our artistry and has given us the ability to perform a knock out show anywhere. Some of the venue highlights have been Showtime Events | Sealife Melbourne | Espy | Melbourne Zoo | Republica | Alumbra | Trak lounge | Crown Casino | Waterfront Venues | Melbourne Museum Centre | National Victoria Gallery | Grand Hyatt Melbourne and even internationally at Nora Beach Resort & Spa in Koh Samui, Thailand.
Our success has been contributed to the wide roster of talented artists we have worked with including chart topping artists like Nathaniel Williemse (Australian Idol, Xfactor), Jason Heerah (Xfactor), Emily Williams (runner up of Australian Idol, Young Divas) Dave Matthews (Michael Buble, Vanessa Amorosi), Rima Takatainga, and international sensation Louis Johnson (original Bass player for Michael Jackson).
We were also very humbled when retweeted by Grammy award winning and over 500,000 Followers, world recognized artists Mary Mary for our performance of their global smash hit “Shackles”.
As a band that strongly focuses on giving back to the community we have hosted charity events supporting and working closely with Peter MacCallum cancer institute and Monash Medical Centre Southern Health. Every year our members attend Monash hospitals and perform Christmas Carols for patients and those in need of cheering up.
We have always believed in giving back to our community.
