Direct Feedback About SJC

I just wanted to say how absolutely fantastic the band was. I engaged the services of Sydney Jazz Collective for a corporate Gala Dinner for 500. Tom and the rest of the band were excellent, they not only sounded and looked fantastic they were extremely professional and helpful to me on the evening.

They arrived on time, dressed in theme as requested, followed the run sheet to a tee and provided me with some great suggestions – everything you want in order to make an evening run smoothly which it most definitely did.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Sydney Jazz Collective for any event you may be holding and I would certainly engage in their services again.

- Ingrid, IPAA

I wanted to thank you personally for the outstanding job done by yourself and your fellow musicians at the recent Maccabi Awards Dinner held at Bondi Beach. The atmosphere you created was superb for the style of function and as a result, as you know, I subsequently hired you for our family function. Once again you were a delight and really made a difference.

I will recommend you highly to my members.

- Michael, CEO Maccabi

I had a fantastic time at my wedding back on the 11/4/08! Your band were very friendly and accommodating. They kept the room alive with music at all times, and were most approachable. They asked if I wanted to request songs, and made every effort to do them. They were perfect for the reception venue. The mood was relaxed, sophisticated and upbeat.

Thank you.

- Jacqueline, Private Wedding

It was a great pleasure having you and your band members from Sydney Jazz Collective play for our Cocktail party at HMAS WATSON. The service was fantastic and we have kept you on file and will be using you again for future functions.

Thank you for everything.

- Bernice, HMAS Watson

I just wanted to take the opportunity to say thank you to you and the Sydney Jazz Collective for providing fantastic musical accompaniment to the DLA Phillips Fox Celebrating the journey event at the Powerhouse Museum yesterday. Initial feedback has been very positive and I wanted to thank you for your assistance throughout the planning process and for the great music on the night. I will pass your details to my colleagues and hopefully there will be another opportunity to book the Sydney Jazz Collective.

Thanks again for contributing to the success of our event.

- Denise, DLA Phillips Fox

Thank you so much for your great performance on our wedding on the 15th of March. We couldn't expect a better night of entertainment and amusement. My wish was to get everybody have fun on that precious day, it was wonderful to see that everyone was dancing and having a good time due to your great performance.

Thanks to all of you guys, and hope be able to hire you again for a near future.

- Yasmine and Geoff, Private Wedding

The band were great and super professional. Everyone commented on how classy they were and sounded, which is definitely the theme we were aiming for.

Will definitely be using you again!!

- Karen, Bluestone Finance Group

Thank you for Saturday you guys made the day so perfect, everyone came up to me and told me how you guys provided the most beautiful atmosphere and its true. When I was walking towards Alex and you guys were playing it really touched me. Thank you.

I will tell everyone about you.

- Darmyn, Private Wedding

I just wanted to say a quick thankyou for the fabulous band that played at our house, they were brilliant. I work in marketing and quite often require entertainment so I will keep you in mind for future events.

- Richard, Private Cocktail Party

Thank you for playing at our launch, your music really made the night and everyone really enjoyed it. We will definitely call you next time we have a function.

- Amanda, Sanderson Motor Group

I want to thank you for working with us to create such a lovely night.  Yesterday evening turned out to be a huge success and the elegance and professionalism of the band truly added ‘spark’ to the night.

I look forward to our next opportunity to work with you guys again. Thank you.

- Jo, 50th Birthday Party

We had a great night. The band was fantastic, and all our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The band created a great atmosphere and their music kept our guests tapping their toes, while enjoying the darling harbor views!

The band members were reliable, punctual, and very accommodative of our needs. I would highly recommend Sydney Jazz Collective for any corporate function!

- Jenny, Nutricia Australia

Thanks so much for your services on the night of our Brand Launch, I received extremely positive feedback from many people who were at the event and have passed on your details to a few of them. The music was really appropriate for the night and provided a great atmosphere and buzz to the whole event.

Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the band members. We will definitely book you again!

- Ylana, THINK Education Group

Just a quick note to let you know that everything went superbly with the Trio at our function on Wednesday night at the Amora Hotel. The music range and quality met our expectations, and I know that it was enjoyed by our attendees. The Trio were also very professional in the manner in which they set up and packed down, as well as being flexible with the timings when things were running late.

Please pass on my warmest thanks to the rest of the band.

- Ben, Privacy Commission of Australia

Just dropping you a quick note to say thank you for helping me with such late notice on my wedding day. Despite the weather it was, yet again, another memorable day and your band did an excellent job. I received a lot of comments about the music and how it made the atmosphere very romantic for us. The band was very versatile and flexible with our changes.

With all of this, my husband and I thank you once again. We are both very appreciative and grateful that we had your band play (live music!!) at our special day. Many thanks.

- Josephine, Private Wedding

Planning an event in another state is difficult, particularly without access to suppliers you are used to dealing with. I came across SJC via Google Search, and was very impressed from the start by the professionalism of the website communications and ease of obtaining a quote quickly. On the night the band arrived on time, dressed very smartly and took the initiative to use a piano available at the venue rather than their own keyboard knowing it would produce a better sound.

With very little direction the music perfectly suited the event. I was confident from the start that I would be happy with SJC, and was certainly not disappointed on the night. Thank you SJC for helping to make the event more successful with wonderful music and ambience!

- Stevie, Business Spectator

These performers are no pub band, they were outstanding! I have had quite a few requests for your contact details and have forwarded them on. The community services team have said they would like to book you guys for the Burwood Festival next year too, so we will definitely be in touch again.

Thank you very much.

- Cory, Enfield Olympic Pool

Thanks so much Tom and SJC for such a great band. All our guests really enjoyed the music and commented on the band's ability to set the most appropriate mood for our special day.

We found SJC very professional and were amazed by the ease of arranging the performance. SJC knew exactly what we were after and accommodated our needs - even an impromptu performance from the crowd!

Thanks again for all your help.

- Adriana and Anthony

We just wanted to say thank you for contributing the music to another DLA Phillips Fox event - it was great to have you back! You and your band created the perfect atmosphere for our guests and was an important aspect of the evening.

It has been great working with you again and look forward to inviting you back for another event.

- Denise, DLA Phillips Fox
