Wedding Testimonials

Planning a wedding can be stressful but when finding and booking entertainment for our guests, EAO Entertainment was amazing. The booking process was easy and the staff were always helpful and so quick to reply to emails and answered all my questions and really catered to all our needs. Anyerin our acoustic guitar player was phenomenal, professional and he fitted in with our day just perfectly. All our guests loved him and I would recommend EAO to anyone- so happy with the service provided. Thank you so much! xx

Having seen Mark Wells play locally in Newcastle, we knew he would bring a great energy to our wedding. Mark played as a duo with saxophone afficianado Jason Bone and the dancefloor was full for the whole night. The boys played a great selection of our favourite songs and were happy to take requests from our guests including fabulous versions of Ice Ice Baby and Kokomo! (Probably not songs in their usual repertoire!) Mark and Jason were very flexible to work with, and were happy to learn two songs for our event, one for playing during our ceremony and our chosen “first dance” song. Since our wedding, we’ve seen many of our guests and ALL have commented on how good the music was – a fabulous testament to how amazing these guys are. Big thanks to the team at EAO, especially Rachel, who made sure the day went smoothly and was always available to liaise with the boys on our behalf.

We were very happy with The Big Bang! Your communication before the night was timely and responsive and all the details had been communicated perfectly to the band. On the night the band members arrived on time, executed 100% to the brief and were outstandingly accommodating, letting us change songs on the ipod, helping with lighting changes and being generally friendly. The band’s helpful attitude and great performance set a really good tone for the night. The dance floor was full all night. Mum and I rated The Big Bang and EAO Functions our best wedding suppliers.

I thought that I would just drop you a quick line to thank you (and of course Brendan) for the music on our special day. In relation to EAO, I found communications and booking a breeze with yourself, with reliable information and understanding in any delays from our end. You both played a large part in creating our perfect day for which we are extremely grateful. Have a great Christmas and we hope to have the occasion to “do business” again some time in the future.

– Stewart Rodham

Thank you for being such a pleasure to deal with. I am going to recommend EAO to anyone else that is thinking of getting married/having a function in the Newcastle/Hunter Valley area and as the wedding was such a success, there might be quite a few!

Over many years i have used EAO to book many different entertainers for quite a few functions we have had and have always found the process extremely easy and the variety of acts not only very good at their craft but very professional in every way.  The girls of EAO always recommend the right person for our function and i know it is one thing i won’t have to worry about on the night.

On behalf of the Leukaemia Foundation and the patients and families we care for, we would like to extend to you our sincere thanks for your support of the Sunflower Dash. There was definitely the chance it would be chilly, we did not expect it to be quite so cold. Nonetheless the sunflowers looked particularly sunny in the weather and we appreciate your commitment even more. The funds raised will help the foundation provide emotional wellbeing through counselling, face to face and telephone support. Thank you again for your support. We hope to see you at another Leukaemia Foundation event in the near future.

Private Function Testimonials


Hi Rachel,

thank you so much for all your help in booking Andy for my husbands 50th birthday the entire process has been professional and very easy, I really appreciated it as it took a great deal of stress away for me.

– Linda, 50th Birthday Party

Thanks very much guys, all went very well last Friday nite.. The booking process was stra8ght forward & all went smoothly.. Paul & Karen, “the band” were brilliant & made the night.. We would have no hesitation using EAO Reception again.

– Mike Flook (50th Birthday Party)

We were extremely happy with the performance by Pete Gelzinnis at my 40th Birthday Party. The whole event was handled professionally by EAO Entertainment, and the booking process was very smooth considering the relatively short notice that was given to find an artist. We did have another EAO act booked, but due to medical reasons, they were unable to perform, so the replacement with Pete Gelzinnis turned out to be a very appropriate recommendation by your team. 
Pete was very organised and professional on the day, and his performance was thoroughly enjoyable and very fitting for the event. Everyone had a great time and we have received several compliments regarding the choice of music and entertainment. Pete even put up with me joining him to sing a few songs at the end of the afternoon which was appreciated. Although this may have been detrimental to his performance, it was a bit of fun for me, and a lot of fun for my friends who were well and truly entertained!!!
We would definitely recommend EAO Entertainment to others, and Mark is even considering having Pete perform at a corporate event that is currently in the planning stages. Thank you to everyone involved in making my special day fun and memorable.
