“The Jazz Dude played at a recent Gatsby Themed Corporate Event for us and I must say he was a fantastic addition to the evening. Everyone loved him and he created a fabulous atmosphere as everyone arrived. Excellent musician and a lovely personality to add. Would recommend him for any event.”

“We booked Douglas for our wedding reception and couldn’t say enough about how good he was. All the guests loved it and even today months later some people still comment on how much they enjoyed it. My aunt was so impressed with the electric cello that she even wanted to get her son to play the cello when she got back to Australia. We couldn’t recommend The Jazz Dude more. He was brilliant!”

“Douglas performed for our Fundraising Ball and was incredible from start to finish. We could not recommend him more highly. The guests arrived stressed and rushed and after 2 minutes he had them calm and relaxed. Thanks for getting our event off to such an incredible start. We look forward to having you down here again.”
