“You guys did us very proud. The whole evening was a roaring success – and you were very much a part of that. I especially loved the fact that you learnt a new song so the brides daughter could get up and sing it - it was great. I heard nothing but praise regarding your performance. The volume and choice of songs were great over dinner and then the change of pace afterwards was perfect.” Greta – Functions manager, Gympie Conference Centre

"I found the Dukes of Rhythm by googling for bands on the Sunshine Coast, and I am glad I did. From the website, their playlist looked ideal for the party I was planning. The reality lived up to my expectations – a thoroughly professional group of guys who tuned their performance to match the mood of the party and made it a roaring success. The dance songs rocked the restaurant, just like I wanted. And between sessions, the band behaved .... That’s right, they behaved! Not like the booze-swilling bands you see at pubs, these fellas are worth knowing.  Thank you, Dukes, for making my party something to remember." Rob Haylock

“Thanks for playing at my party, every one had such a great night & have complimented on you guys heaps saying what a great night & the band was easy listening for all ages.”
Cheers Tina & Mike (Tina's 40th birthday party)

"Very very happy, good choice of music and great humour which we all enjoyed.  It was a pleasure to have you play for my 50th birthday party, I would be happy to recommend you guys to anyone" Neil Bidner (Professional Entertainer).

"Another great night boys!  Thanks for playing at the rodeo again.  The new line-up sounds great, you sure had them dancing and we loved the nice mix of classics mixed up with hard rockin' country. See you again next year"  Joe Mooney (Vice President of the Gympie show society - 2012).
