Testimonials.

Hi John Thanks once again for making my 50th so memorable. I was confident that you would be a great entertainer after seeing your online videos and soundtracks but was totally blown away by your precision guitar playing and timbre voice on the night. Everyone had so much fun and I was really impressed with the way you played music to suit the mood of the party and changing as the mood got more festive. It was great to see you having fun too and ramping up as people clapped, started dancing and singing along. “Piano Man” was fantastic! We were all left wanting more and I think that is what is making you so successful. I will highly recommend you to anyone that wants’ to have a fun and memorable occasion, and really hope that one of my friends hires your services in the future so that we can enjoy your company again soon in a personal setting. We will see you at one of your regular venues in the future too. Best Regards Kevin” Kevin Hopkinson “

John did such a great job at our State Conference. The choice of music was very much to everyone’s liking and pertinent to the people, genre and age group. Would I use him again? Yes indeed! I am always on the lookout for talent for our conferences. John is very easy to deal with and is a very talented musician. I am so glad that I discovered him in a pub in Toowoomba.” Christine Warne – Manager – Member Services Development – Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia Qld Division

“Hi John, I wanted to say a massive thanks for your performance at my drunken boyfriends 21st on Saturday night! I know Matt absolutely had a brilliant time, and I’ve had heaps of people comment about how great it was to have you performing live and the great atmosphere it brought to the night. Thanks again for a great night on Saturday!” Katie Holmes

“Damon and I would like to thank you for playing at our Engagement party, everybody had a great night. It was very hard to decide on a good singer but after all the reviews and compliments we have heard about you we just could not refuse. Your music was great, you included everyone in at the party and also helped us out with speeches. Everybody at the party commented on how good you were and just did not want you to leave, and as asked, you stuck around for an extra few hours as everyone was enjoying the music so much. We had such a ball – everyone had such a great night and your such a friendly happy person. We would love to have you play at our wedding. Thanks once again.” Kerry and Damon

“John was awesome?! Received lots of positive feedback and comments from people at the function and can’t speak highly enough about him myself. Created the perfect laid back atmosphere for everyone after a massive day ?”? ~ Caitlyn Sippel – Program Officer (Competitions & Events) – Hockey Queensland “John played at my 40th birthday party on the weekend, and it was absolutely brilliant. The music choice was perfect for the audience, the volume worked with the atmosphere of the party (got louder at exactly the right time), John chatted to the crowd during breaks (he definitely made a few more fans), my friends and I danced for hours and had the best time! Will definitely be booking John for the next party!” ~ Jo-Anne Shann

"We were really happy with John. He is a fantastic musician and entertainer. He played the right kind of music and had good balance throughout the gig. It would have been easy to be too loud with such a small crowd but he seemed to manage well. He mingled with the crowd during his breaks too and was a great sport when we introduced him to my sisters, who were a bit surprised!! He was playing to a small but appreciative crowd, at least a third of which are or have been musicians/entertainers themselves and they all thought he was awesome. One of my sisters commented that she could listen to him all day. A great compliment. We will certainly be booking him again, should we need live entertainment. Thanks for sourcing him for us, he really was great! :)” Kylee O’Neil
