Apart from performing shows and concerts, across Australia and Europe,  predominantly featuring my original material, I love interpreting songs and singing at weddings.

Weddings are often a time of many tribes coming together to celebrate love, and my diverse repertoire offers something for everyone and ensures a warm glow at any event.

I offer a Dinner Set and a Dance Set; as a soloist with backing tracks, duo, trio or any size band you like!! I am very versatile and happy to accommodate, singing  repertoire for all ages to enjoy.. I can even organise a DJ or musicians for the ceremony. 

I tend to sing a rich array of Jazz + Pop + Soul + Roots + World covers, but I've even  sung Hawaiian themed wedding songs!!

A Special song for weddings or corporate functions can be requested. 


Multi award winning chanteuse Parissa Bouas  is ‘shut-the-front-door DYNAMITE!!’. She’s a free spirited troubadour with a voice that offers a deep level of emotional authority and fluency , alternating between ‘a tone that would cut glass and breathy seduction’.  Parissa is a singer’s singer, with a well founded reputation for excellence, soulful generosity,  warmth & humour.  Her original songs share deeply compelling evocations on love, loss, heartache and joy.   Her influences are far ranging  from Billy Holiday & Joni Mitchell  to Astrid Gilberto,  &  Amy Winehouse…She is as at home singing Reggae, as she is with Jazz, Folk or Soul, as at home singing Etta James ‘At Last’ as she is at singing ‘Perfect’ by Ed Sheeran, or ‘Me Gustas Tu’ by Manu Chao.   

Parissa’s latest album won her critical acclaim in Australia and overseas and she has received numerous awards including ‘Best Song’, ‘Best Jazz’, ‘Best World’  categories at The North Coast Music Industry Awards.  Her earlier 6 albums, with Australia’s definitive Coffeehouse couple, The Hottentots,  won ‘Best Album’ (twice), ‘Best World’ and ‘Best Folk’.   

Parissa has received international acclaim for her captivating shows at festivals and concerts throughout Europe and has performed, at the renowned Woodford Folk Festival, Port Fairy, Cygnet Folk Festival, National Folk Festival, Mullum Music Festival, Splendour, Island Vibes, Darling Harbour, Sydney Entertainment Centre, Lizotte’s, The Basement, Brisbane Townhall and Powerhouse.   

During lockdown last year, Parissa was offered a scholarship to study Music Production at SAE and used the time to  write and record many new songs in various styles which will be released over the next year.   

Parissa plays acoustic and electric guitar, and an array of percussion instruments.  Together with her guitarist as a duo, or as a band, you can expect an irresistible, unique mix of jazzy + world + pop + neo soul + roots influences… moving from deliciously, sensuous slow tunes in the first set to put on your dancing shoes in the 2nd!!!   A repertoire for all ages to enjoy.
