    Testimonials

     

    “We’ve had Jo playing at our events now for around 24 months she’s become very much a
    valued part of each occasion. Our Star Awards and Long Service Awards are an opportunity to
    recognise our staff for their commitment and service to St. George and our customers. Jo has
    added a new dimension to these key events through the quality of entertainment she provides – it
    really makes such a difference to our award presentations and cocktail parties. At our recent
    Long Service Awards Jo and her band had everyone up dancing – from 18 to 70 – and added so
    much to the overall atmosphere for the evening. We always look forward to welcoming Jo and
    her band back to our events-they really are fabulous musicians”.

    “Jo, I wanted to thank you for helping make my wife’s 40th birthday party so fantastic. The music
    selection and quality was outstanding, and we loved the way you just played the room and
    brought the party to life. Our friends had a ball, and they all said that you were the best band they
    had heard in years.
    Right from my initial enquiry through to the big night, I found you to be highly professional, and
    you and the band exceeded my expectations on every count. I have absolutely no hesitation in
    recommending you to anyone who wants to take their event to a new level or bring their next
    party to life”.
