Using state of the art looping pedals and stomp box, John can provide all the energy of a four piece band! Drums, bass, rhythm guitar and lead guitar, all 100% live! For a more intimate performance, sit back and listen to just the guitar and vocals described as rich, dark chocolate! 🙂

"All my family and friends raved about John after he played at my 40th. The party was on a charter boat and everyone had a ball. It was all very smooth and easy to organise and John was very accommodating and a really fun guy to have at any event. I’d definitely use John again, maybe when I turn 50. It helped make the night a great night for sure!"

"Thanks for playing at Andrew's 40th, everybody had a great night – good people, music and food! Your selection of music was great – everybody at the party commented on how good you were and where did we find you! As a lover of live music it was great that you knew when to turn it up and down according to the time of the night etc so that people could talk and hear themselves as well as your music in the background. The night was absolutely pain free – everything we asked for you to play was played and we were happy that you stayed and played a little longer than the booked time. I would absolutely book you again and we have highly recommended you for other potential functions."

¨Hi John, Thankyou so much for being part of Tarren’s 21st Birthday Party. Such a great night. So many people commented on your music. You mingled with the crowd and entertained us with your talent. We appreciate everything you have done for us! The Choice of Music was perfect. Cant wait until the next party!!! Thanks heaps!!¨

Greg, Kris & Tarren

"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 Shann

“Firstly we want to thank you John for helping make our wedding night a huge success. We have been to a few weddings where the music seemed like it was an oversight and you could really tell as the reception would die early. However we were so thrilled with how our night powered on and people who wouldn’t normally be dancing; (the elderly included) were up boogying along to your flawless guitar work and timbre voice, our entrance to your performance of Old Time Rock and Roll was a real highlight for us. Thank you for being so flexible and helpful with the planning in the lead up to the wedding. Your willingness to include and/or alter any songs we wanted was really appreciated. Olivia and I would definitely recommend you to any of our friends and family and we wish you all the best in your future endeavours.”

"Hi Felix, The function was great, thanks for asking. 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 Felix, he really was great! :)"

Kylee O'Neil

"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"

"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

"Our wedding celebrations in the evening were fantastic, and we certainly had no regrets in choosing John as our entertainment. He certainly made the night an awesome night for everyone. John was a pure pleasure to work with and very easygoing, with nothing being a problem, even tweaking songs for us and making them last longer, or even shorter. I would have no hesitation in using John again for any event and would absolutely recommend him, if your thinking of booking a musician then your search is over! Our night was a delight and every song we asked John to play was performed exceptionally. We had one of our friends even say that they were certain to have live music at their wedding as they thought it "made our wedding complete". We cannot thank John enough..."

Jack and Stephanie Blake

"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."

"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

¨Hi John, Thank you again for playing at my engagement party! You were fabulous and definitely a crowd pleaser so thank you. We will definitely keep you in mind for further events and will be recommending you to family and friends."
