Testimonials

Here are what some clients had to say about the Steve Morrison Trio:

Brilliant performance from Steve and the band, all the couple pretty much fall in love again under the musical spell.
The night went very smoothly and definitely an unforgettable moment when our song was played with an added Morrison touch.
Steve mixed very well with our family and friends, which can be described as expertly making new friends through laughter and his warm jokes.
His performance as an MC is very personal, and some of our relative actually mistaken him for a "very talented friend"
Thanks for joining us on our very special day Steve.
Bernard and Alison, Sydney.

We had such a fantastic night with the music at our Engagement Party, we booked Steve and the band again for our Wedding. The music suited all ages and got everyone up onto the dancefloor. Memorable and great fun!

I have nothing but good things to say about the 'Steve Morrison Jazz Band.
They made my wedding reception at The Carrington Hotel in the blue mountains a perfect evening.
All my guests commented on the quality and classiness of the jazz band.
And best of all they were so friendly and helpful with the organisation, traveling quite a distance to play on my wedding day all at a very good price.
I would recommend this band to anyone, for any function. They really exceeded my expectations'
All of these comments are very true, please accept my overdue thank you to the band for your involvement in my wedding reception.
Kind Regards
Mrs Melinda Poulton
 
The smooth tones of the Steve Morrison Jazz Band were just perfect for our Jazz night dinner. The musicians themselves were professional and sensitive to what we were hoping to achieve, providing classy jazz that created a relaxed and enjoyable ambience to the evening. The standard of music was of the highest quality, thoroughly enjoyed by the musically literate and illiterate alike! Without a doubt, the Steve Morrison Jazz Band and their Jazzing abilities made the evening a success and I would highly recommend them for any function or special occasion where quality music is desired!

Hi Steve
I just wanted to say thank you for helping to make my son's 18th birthday party cruise a great night last weekend. Your choice of music and style of playing was excellent and really set the atmosphere for the black tie theme of the party. Several of the teenagers commented on how good the music was and how much they enjoyed the 'feel' it created. I will certainly keep you in mind for my next event.
Thanks again
