RE: WEDDING RECEPTION AT THE INTERCONTINENTAL SYDNEY
“We would like to extend a “great big thank you” to you for the wonderful music that you played on the evening of our wedding. It was just perfect and exactly what we wanted and more!!

So many of the guests have expressed how fabulous the band was and so many of them (especially the guys) who don’t usually dance just had to get and move to your fabulous beat!!

You guys created the most sensational atmosphere in the room for the whole evening – we really, really loved it.
You are a class act and we will highly recommend you in the future. If the opportunity arises again where we need a band we will definitely use you.

Thanks so much for helping (in a big way) to make our wedding such a fantastic and memorable occasion.”
