“WOW WOW WOW. If that sentence could talk it would be an understatement.
 
We at the Bendigo Bank cannot thankyou enough for everything you did to make our 2013 Community Bank National Conference in Brisbane a raging success.
 
The thought of putting together an event for 830 people including entertainment that would suit many ages was one of the most daunting things but after our first discussion you put my mind immediately at ease and knew we were in great hands.
 
Your regular contact and professionalism during the whole process made the entertainment even that much more enjoyable.  
 
Your performance is still being raved about from our delegates Australia wide, and I am sure will be difficult for the next state next year to top what you both did.
 
Words cannot thankyou enough for what you did for us. I will be singing your praises (not as amazing as both your singing) everywhere we go and should we be organising another event such as this I wont be looking anywhere else.
 
Have a fantastic week and I now feel I can finally breathe.”

“Hi guys,

Just thought I would give you feedback again re last night’s show.Why? because there aren’t many performances that blow me away.

It was

·         Unpredictable

·         Personalised with such detail

·         Classy with no “crassness”

·         Witty and very funny

·         Educational on opera the way you explained some of the songs

·         Emotional, one minute I was laughing, the next I was almost shedding a tear from the power and depth of both your voices

 I’m sure you know you are good but as Robert DeNero said…

“You are very good you”

All the best

Regards,”

“Hi Rebecca and Jon,

What can I say…your show was wonderful and enjoyed by all who were there.  We can’t thank you enough for your contribution to our wedding and providing superb entertainment, including the singing of our bridal waltz song.  Here’s hoping it’s excited a few of our guests to expose themselves further to Opera!”

 Thanks again,

“Thank you so much for adding a touch of class to my function. I have had nothing but positive feedback. Even to the extent that one member said that the entertainment alone was worth the ticket price. Well Done.

 Million thanks”

“Well you two really were a big hit with all the girls from our christmas party. We have had numerous positive comment and even one who said she had tears in her eyes as you two performed the Aria at the end! As a result of your stunning performance a few of the girls have been asking about you and your company. Can you give me a little info on how people can find you if needed. Hopefully we can generate a bit of extra work for you out of our gossiping girls.

 Thanks again so much. You were both fabulous!!“

“What can I say!!   What a wonderful act you were on Sunday.   As I’d left it up to you to decide, it was such a treat!!  To see the expressions on people’s faces was quite something, you had us all in fits.  J.D lived up to his old self, a little embarrassed for about 10 seconds then lapped it up.

 

We were absolutely delighted with all that you did, to make our Christmas Party a very happy occasion. I hope that you enjoyed singing for our friends as much as they enjoyed listening to your amazing voices.

 Thankyou so much for being part of our special day, we felt honoured to have you entertain us & our friends.   You would have noticed  the toys that many underprivelged  children from Berry Street will receive for Christmas, what a lovely thought, to think that we have put a smile on many little faces that are not as lucky as we.

 I do hope your little girls concert was lovely, she would have been pleased just to have Mummy & Daddy there.

 Best wishes to you all for a Happy Christmas & a great year ahead.

 Kind regards”

“Where shall I start!?…..I am still coming down from cloud 9 after your amazing performance on saturday night at my 30th birthday!  Every single person raved about it and i am still getting comments today about how impressed my guests were! I can’t thank you enough for the amazing attention to detail you put into the performance and I love how you tailored the act to be exactly what I needed for the night…I was brought to tears by how beautiful and special you guys made me feel.  I also had other guests that were brought to tears as well!……You both exceeded my expectations, it was truly spectacular!”

“Hi Rebecca, can I start out by saying that you guys were amazing.  The amount of time you put in to prepare for your performance and the way you mixed the local characters into the performance was simply brilliant and worked a treat. I could not believe how good the show was and how magnificent your voices are.  This was a first for many people at the party and they raved about it for days afterwards – many crusty old types saying that they never had time for opera but after hearing you two sing they are now believers – as well as the table of young children who all thought you were both very funny and sounded really cool.. 
Your performance set the tone for the night and was exactly what I was after, so I am thrilled that I contacted you. Thanks to you both for making my 50th Birthday so memorable and please feel free to use me as a reference if you need as I can not speak highly enough of you.

“Rebecca and Jon, thank you both so much for last Tuesday nights performance.
The time and effort you obviously spent in scripting an act just for us –  was so appreciated. We have had so many positive messages about doing something a bit different.The universal comment is one of awe in the way you both sing. Jon’s character was so believable, there are many who are still chuckling. Merry Christmas to you both, and may we bump into each other again”

“Singing Sommeliers completely blew my staff away! It lifted the evening to a whole new level – we were all on a high for hours afterwards. How they managed to weave in all that the information (about our staff ) into their songs was truly unforgettable – oh, and hilarious”

“At our organisation’s recent birthday bash, the Singing Sommeliers were our ‘surprise guests’.  They were an absolute joy – our audience was totally captivated by them and their magnificent voices.   They were totally entertaining from the moment they took to the stage and I know our guests were absolutely ‘bowled over’ by their charisma and playful involvement. We could not have had better entertainment – they were the highlight of our celebrations and we will definitely be booking them again. They are exceptional in every way.”

“I was extremely impressed with the attention to detail that was undertaken by ‘The Singing Sommeliers’  making their performance special and personal at my husband’s recent 60th Birthday Party…The singing was superb and the performance both entertaining and exciting. All our guests thoroughly enjoyed their voices and theatrical presentation.”
Julie Leeming.

 

“Singing Sommeliers were fabulous in their duo act, leading us from their (overly serious, delightfully silly) discussions on wine-making into their gorgeous bursts into song. Marvellous singers and great entertainers, it certainly provided the total “wow” factor to the evening.”
