TESTIMONIALS
 
March 10th 2009 
Duck and Cover were unbelievable, The dance floor was packed all night, When they played their last song everyone was calling out for more. I have had nothing but positive feedback from all our guests who attended our event at the inter-continental ballroom Sydney. The communication overall with Steve was fantastic, they were very professional and I would highly recommend them to anyone that asked.

Dear Steve & Duck & Cover 
Thanks so much for making our wedding reception so special !  
You guys were absolutely awesome, the crowd, including young and old, were up and dancing right from the first set!  Mark and I had so many compliments from people, asking where we found you! In fact I have already recommended you to a friend who is arranging her wedding. Absolutely fantastic, I would book you guys in a heartbeat and have no issues in telling everyone how great you all were. 
Kindest regards, 
Anne-Louise & Mark

Dear Steve,

It is with pleasure that I write to say Thank you to the Duck 'N' Cover crew for their participation in our 2008 Christmas Party. The atmosphere you guys created was a huge part of making our event such a success.

Hi Steve, 
How are you going? I hope you are well. 
I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding reception so fantastic and so memorable. Duck 'n' Cover were just brilliant and definitely made our night.  We've also had so many of our friends rave about how great you guys were.  It certainly would not have been the same night without you guys.   
You've been absolutely fantastic to deal with in the lead up to the wedding and we really appreciate how well you managed everything on the night.  It made things so easy having someone we could trust implicitly to get the job done right and we really couldn't have asked for a better night.   
We won't hesitate to recommend you guys to anyone who will listen and we just hope we can hold another event down the track so we can book you guys again. 
We hope to see you again sometime.   
Thanks again & Cheers, 
Matthew & Melinda

Dear Steve,
You, along with the other band members, make our annual Christmas Event a night not only to look forward to, but also a night to remember.
Your talent on the stage as lead singer of Duck & Cover and your professionalism off the stage as Manager, makes the organisation of each event a pleasure. You are highly organised and have planned and prepared for each of our two previous events (Shangri-La, Sydney - December 2002 and The Imperial Peking, Circular Quay) comprehensively.
I have full trust that the same enthusiasm and passion will be employed for this year's party at The Sebel, Pier One. As you are aware, our corporate events are not the only pleasure I have had in "partying" with Duck & Cover.
Our wedding, held at Sebel Health & Spa Resort, Windsor, would not have been the same magical day without you all. Steve, it is with pleasure that I write you this letter. I wish you all a lengthy and rewarding career in a vocation that screams Duck &Cover! See you in December!
My best regards,
Donna Gramolt

I have used Duck'n'Cover on several occasions, and at each event they have always delivered a great performance. They have a great abundance of energy. Their professionalism within the industry is a blessing. Their talent as a band and musical dynamics are guaranteed to have the crowd up and dancing, singing on the tops of their voices and always leaving with huge smiles on their faces.
I have been fortunate to see the band play at their regular gig at the Monkey Bar in Balmain, and also book them on several occasions for private functions. They always put in 110%. Their mix of covers ranging from the 60's to the current hit list has them a favorite with any age group in the crowd. I have always found the band to be friendly and easy going and adaptable to the crowd, whether for a public or private function. I would have no hesitation recommending this group for any gig - as long as I could get an invite too!
