“THANK YOU!! Having seen The Rumour several times we knew you would be perfect for our wedding at Lizotte’s. You truly are a “powerhouse live act”…and then some! Your professionalism, energy and enthusiasm were beyond our expectations, not just at the wedding but in the organisation and communication prior. Every single member of the band contributed to the fun, party ‘vibe’ in the room on the night and we really could not have asked for more. The dance floor was full from beginning to end…what a credit to each of you and your skill and talent. My very elegant, refined 72 year old mother danced so hard she took her shoes off then danced some more! Unheard of! Our guests are still talking about you…a month later!! Fantastic musicians and genuine, lovely people with it!! What an unbeatable combination! We can’t thank you enough!”

The Rumour At Your Wedding

The Hunter’s Premier Wedding and Event Band.

Comprising some of the most experienced and well-known professional musicians in the region, The Rumour is the Hunter’s most exciting live act for weddings and other special events.

Featuring both male (Marty Worrall) and female (Karyn Raftery) lead vocalists, and three-part harmonies, The Rumour performs a huge range of material from retro to current hits.

Members of The Rumour have performed with some of the biggest names in the Australian Music Industry and are full-time musicians. With a wealth of combined experience, we have performed at hundreds of private and corporate functions, and we realise the role live music plays in creating the special occasion you have imagined.
We understand how important music is to you for your wedding, and we will work with you to create the memorable occasion your friends and family will be talking about for years to come! From dinner music to dance sets and even music for your ceremony, The Rumour will make it work for you.

We will provide high quality production and lighting, the break music between our sets and a microphone for speeches. You don’t need to worry about anything but enjoying your day.


The Rumour is available as a 5 piece band, or a trio, depending on your needs and budget. The Rumour Trio consists of the two lead vocalists, keyboards and guitar. The band adds a drummer and a bass player.


Contact us for more information and we’ll help you create exactly the atmosphere you are dreaming of.
