"Hi Nicole"
OMG how good is Matt Hetherington. He totally wowed everyone in the room. You couldn't move on the dance floor in fact it was overflowing. Matt was so chilled and obliging and gave 150%. The hip hop number went over amazingly. Everyone loved Matt and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. His band was great and worked so hard. We are extremely happy.

"Hi Ella,
Matt Hetherington was superb, songs were great and interaction with our guests was spot on.
WALK LIKE A MAN - (A Salutè To Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons) performed brilliantly and certainly got everyone up on the dance floor. Made John"s birthday night a very special night! We would have no hesitation in using Matt and the band again. Please pass on our appreciation."

"Hi Ella,
We really enjoyed the performance of the Tim Campbell Band at our recent Gala Night. The band was really great and Tim himself was a “ball of energy” during his performance – he was terrific."

"Dear Peter and Susie, 
So many thanks for all your work and in helping make the Mad Hatters Ball a wonderful success. Matt Hetherington and Beyond Belief were sensational. It has been a pleasure being involved with such a professional group of people and I hope we can work together again next year. 

Yours sincerely,"

"For all my meticulous planning and endless hours of preparation, the success of my event really came down to one decision – choosing Essential. From the beginning their friendly and mature manner meant that they were a pleasure to deal with. On the night, their amazing talent had the dance floor full from the very first song. Their interaction with the crowd and professionalism made my event the success that it was and I would have no hesitation in recommending them for future corporate or personal functions."

I must say that the band was exemplary in their behaviour. They were very professional and had people dancing all night. I spoke to Dale Ryder a number of times and he was a gentleman.
We had one instance during the night where the venue did not put a reserved place card on their table and staff had already sat at the table. Instead of being justifiably frustrated Dale said "Don't worry about it as this night is for you and not the band". This typified the professional approach and friendly nature.
General feedback was the band was great."

"Alyce (Alyce Platt - In The Flesh), Jeremy Pete et el were fantastic. They played more than required and were a big hit with the 20 - 60 year age cross section. 
Our 500 guests were entertained and danced off their feet."

"Hi Peter!
Hope this finds you well. I just wanted to let you know how fantastic Rohan Hammit, the showgirls and Bjorn Again were on Friday night! They were a big hit, everyone was up & dancing, and there was so much good feedback at the end of the night - Best Event they have had in the long time!  Also they were all lovely to have around backstage. I'll be in touch when I get the next event!"

"Peter and Susie, 
On behalf of the Hawthorn Football Club I would like to thank Bandshop for all your hard work and enthusiasm with Hawthorn Football Club's Family Day. Your professionalism and flexibility is certainly your strength, always being there for me whenever I called up with any concerns or questions. Both POGO and THE LOUNGE were outstanding and added to the success of the event. We have only received positive feedback from the supporters, staff and players of the Hawthorn Football and full credit goes to the performers and to Bandshop. It has been a pleasure working with Bandshop once again and I look forward to working with you for future Hawthorn Football Club events. 
Kind regards,"
