Rhyme & Reason

Specialising in quirky acoustic renditions of pop and rock tunes from the last 5 decades, Rhyme & Reason are sure to impress. Audiences can expect to hear reworked versions of many of their favourite songs ranging from The Hollies to Ed Sheeran to Def Leppard, with a surprisingly fuller sound than expected from just two performers.

The duo is fronted by the soothing but prominent voice of Janece Wiggins, who is bound to turn heads with her powerful voice, as well as the use of instruments like guitar, tenor ukulele and percussion to aid her performances. Janece came to Western Australia in March 2009, having performed in New Zealand since childhood.

Janece is backed by the adaptive guitar and percussion styles of Rene Tostevin, who has performed at pubs, weddings, private parties and corporate functions in Western Australia for 20 years. Described as sounding sometimes soothing, sometimes punchy, but always rich, Rene can bring a crowd to sing along with a mellow version of any rock hit, or modernised classic.

With years of live experience, they each deliver a professional performance, with a relaxed approach. Rhyme & Reason are a top choice for cafés, private functions, weddings and pubs.
