Thank you to Janelle at EAO Entertainment and Oran Vir for our amazing entertainment for our 40th birthday! My husband and I celebrated our 40th birthday together with a spectacular party in the vineyards at Peppers Creek and were searching for entertainment that would match the theme and elegance of our venue. Oran Vir were absolutely amazing! Your song choices were perfect! We received so many compliments all night from guests and venue staff! Our guests were singing and dancing all night and really enjoyed themselves! Our event was during a large storm event and Janelle and Oran Vir made every effort to ensure the event went on without interruption. They were very professional. I can’t thank you enough. You made our event so special and memorable for us and our guests! Thank you!!
Suzie | 40th Birthday Party | March 2021
I just wanted to say the musicians (Nick Roberts and Oran Vir Duo) you supplied for our two dinners were fantastic and everyone loved them! They really made our night and no one wanted the evening to finish. So just wanted to say a big thank you and to them as well. If we ever are in the area again for an event we would hire them again. Thanks heaps.

From the first moment I contacted EAO Entertainment, I knew I was in great hands. I already knew the band I was after for our wedding however; EAO Entertainment made the process so much easier and stress free – & for a bride-to-be that is a massive WIN! Communication was easy & they were genuinely interested in what you had to say. Countless of times I emailed just for advice for the wedding and I always got a heartfelt email in return. I could not recommend these guys enough! I’m already waiting for the next big function I get to plan so I can go through EAO Entertainment again
Taylah & Matt | Leogate Estate | February 2020
We had Mark Wells at our wedding . He played solo acoustic at our ceremony which we could not fault. It gave me all the goose bumps. We then had the Trio play at our reception, which was fantastic. I mean who has rage against the machine played live at their wedding? And who’s wedding band includes your cardboard cut out friend in a song? Mark Wells Trio does! They played all our favourites from whitney Houston to blink 182, they could not have made our day and night more perfect.
Mark Wells Trio | Stonehurst Cedar Creek Vineyard | February 2020
Mark Wells is a family favourite having played at 2 of James’ siblings weddings along with the weddings of a cousin and close family friend. Mark did such an amazing job on the night and really created the fun party atmosphere we had hoped for. We have had so many compliments from our guests about how much fun they had and how he really set the vibe.The booking process through EAO was so easy and relaxed, with Janelle answering any questions we had via email. We can’t thank EAO Entertainment and Mark Wells enough for being part of our special day and helping us create everything we hoped it to be.
– Noelle Smith | 48 Watt Street |February 2020
The Big Bang were the PERFECT band for our wedding! I absolutely love them every time I hear them, which has been 5 times now! Before I booked them for my wedding, I saw them at 2 professional conference dinners and 2 more casual weekend gigs, and in all contexts they are just incredible. I had a big dream for my wedding and that was to get everyone on the dance floor for the WHOLE time the band played – and the Big Bang achieved just that! I couldn’t believe it! My wedding guests and I had the most amazing time dancing to the band; it was one of my most favourite parts of the whole wedding day! There is something so special about dancing to live music and the Big Bang definitely filled the dancefloor. Their sound is SO good and their playlist is so great for all ages. I had twenty-somethings and sixty-somethings all enjoying and dancing to the same music. I love that they have a jazzy side to their band and just had to have them play the sax! The band were even able to play my prerecorded first dance song over their speakers for us. Janelle and the team at EAO Entertainment made the booking process so easy. She was a great liason for the band. She made sure I had all the info I needed, and the band had all theirs! Thank you so much to everyone in the Big Bang and I can’t wait to hear you play again sometime soon.
– Natalie & Josh | Longworth House | September 2019
From the first point of contact EAO made it easy for us. They provided a selection of a range of different performers to choose from, based on what sort of music we wanted. They were always prompt with communication and made the entire process smooth as can be! This was so important to us as we both live in Sydney and are very busy with work! We selected Oran Vir to provide vocals with guitar during the ceremony and canapés, and Launch DJ for the reception and after-party. Both were fabulous! They were prompt, personable, had excellent equipment and went out of their way to make sure we were happy throughout the course of the day. Oran Vir has an amazing voice, just perfect for our relaxed winery wedding, and launch DJ played all our favourites and knew how to get everybody up on the dancefloor! I can’t recommend EAO, Oran Vir and Launch DJ enough. Thank you
– Kristen | Wedding | Tuscany Wine Estate | December 2019
Adrianna Mac were fantastic they kept everyone dancing the whole night right till the end! They were so much fun and so engaging it couldn’t have been any better! The whole process was so easy and enjoyable and I’d definitely recommend EAO. Thanks again and please thank the duo for us they really helped to make the night so much fun!
– Amelia Burgess |Ceremony, Canapés & Reception | 48 Watt St | November 2019
Jessica Cain was the just perfect musical ingredient in our wedding, and an absolute delight to work with. Her voice is incredible and so unique, her interpretations of our chosen songs added a touch of magic to the ceremony, and she created such a great vibe for the cocktail reception. So many of our guests commented on how great Jessica was, and asked where we found her! Thanks to Jessica for sharing her talents with us on our special day, and thanks also to the team at EAO for making the process of finding and booking Jessica so easy. Your website was such a fantastic resource, being able to listen and watch clips of all of your artists made it so easy for us to find the right fit.
– Ashley and Kristel | Wedding | Adams Peak | November 2019
Thank-you for organising Nick for our Christmas party. Nick was great and we’ve had wonderful feedback regarding his performance. I would definitely be happy to have Nick back if we hold a similar event in the future!
– Belinda | Amp Control Group | Murrook Cultural Centre | December 2019
Uptown were seriously amazing they stole the show on the night. They were so accommodating and easy to deal with they had everything covered. They let me get up and sing a few songs with them, they honestly made the wedding. I could not recommend them highly enough to people!
– Madeline Roberts | Wedding | Stanley Park | November 2019
Jess absolutely delivered when it come to this meeting all of my clients needs when it come to song choices. On the day of the wedding there were a number delays (nothing to do with Jess) of which she took in her stride and continued to perform. Thank-you to Jess for all of the pre work that she completed and the amazing vocals on the day.
– Rochelle (Isn’t It Lovely) | Wedding/ Ceremony and Canapés | Piggs Peak Winery | November 2019
You know it’s a great band when you can’t drag the Bride off the dance floor! Tre Soul are the perfect modern wedding band (they also know their classics, so it’s a win-win!) that are so amazingly talented, and friendly too! The dance floor was always full and our guests still talk about Tre Soul and we all just want to re-live that night. They contributed to the PERFECT wedding reception.
– Amy |Kantara House | October 2019
EAO have been very easy to deal with. My emails were responded to quickly and the staff were friendly. Love That Hat as performers are absolutely fantastic!
– Sarah | Wedding | The Vintage, Rothbury | October 2019
Love That Hat were exceptional and that was no surprise, we did have many comments from both young and old about how good they were.
– Mark | Wedding Reception | Merewether Surfhouse | November 2019
Mark Wells was fantastic on the right. Everyone loved him and his performance! It was a great night and he was a huge part of the success of the event.
– Rob | 50th Birthday Party | Battlesticks | November 2019
Joy duo were absolutely amazing and I have had so many comments post wedding by guests about them! They were kind and friendly people, their play lists and sets were perfect and they did a fantastic job of the live songs!!!! Thanks for all your help in organising them I could not of been happier with the suggestion you gave.
Dom | Wedding Ceremony | Goonoo Goonoo Station | October 2019
The Big Bang were amazing!!! I cannot emphasise enough how great they were. They had everyone moving on the dance-floor all night long. They were one of the highlights of the wedding. I loved them so much and I so appreciate how easy EAO made it, organising everything with them.
– Natalie Murray | Longworth House | September 2019
Anyerin was absolutely amazing at our wedding. He played to the crowd and we received such great feedback on him. We were also thrilled that he was able to learn our requested processional song in such short notice, and he performed it perfectly and beyond our expectations. Such a talented artist – we would recommend him to anyone! We are still waiting on the photographer’s photos to come through but will send through any photos she took of the artist on the night.
– Sophie | Private Residence | Coal Point | October 2019
The event was a great success, thanks so much for all your assistance in getting the performers there for us. Phantasia were all very professional and the residents loved their interactions with them all. We had lots of residents tell us what a great initiative the event was and the performers were a big part of that
– Olivia Power | AVID Property Group | November 2019
Thank-you for assisting with Tim’s booking for our Gala Dinner on Saturday night. We invited Tim to enjoy his dinner on our table, our guests enjoyed talking to him about his musical history. He then wow’ed our crowd across his 3 sets. His music choices were fantastic – easy going lighter music while we were eating then more party choices when the dancing began.
– Janet | Variety Children’s Charity | October 2019 |
Vogue were amazing! They got everyone up and dancing and interacted so well with all the guests. We will definitely be recommending them!!!The booking process with EAO was great. Very easy and I appreciated all the help from the team
– Hayley & Marcus |Wedding Reception| October 2019
Thank you guys so much, especially after our original act pulled out two months before our wedding after having booked him two years in advance. We had a good choice of artists and EAO were helpful in every step. We decided on Tim Harding to play at our wedding on the weekend and he smashed it, not just in the music side but how friendly he was to all our guests. Tim also smashed our first dance (you’ll be in my heart song by Phil Collins) as it’s not an easy song to play on guitar, but he did an amazing version. Thanks again guys.
– Jess & Nandor |Wedding | October 2019
Everything was wonderful we had a great night! This was the second time we have used Hayden Johns and as usual he was amazing as usual!
He was friendly, professional and so accommodating to ourselves and our guests. He played a great mix of music and listened to all requests even playing certain requested songs in his breaks if he did not know them. I would highly recommended him and definitely use book him again!
– Stacey |Wedding | Private Property | October 2019
I would just like to pass on our thanks to Jason & Marissa for playing at our wedding on the October 4th. They were both so great and had the everyone hitting the dancefloor immediately once the formalities were over, which is always a sign of great wedding! We had a such an amazing night and still cant stop reliving it over in our minds and through photos!
– Kate & Nelson | Wedding Reception | Cooks Hill SLC | October 2019
We were very happy with Kazzie and the whole booking process with EAO. Responses were always quick and we felt that staff were always willing to help and answer any questions. That was the same the whole way through the process. On the night, the Kazzie band had everyone on the dance floor and the members were all so friendly. We didnt have to worry for a second about set up, timing or the set list. Our first dance was a particular highlight and we loved the version Kazzie did. Massive thanks to you all!
– Gemma & Tom | Wedding Reception | Tocal Homestead | September 2019
Entertainment was probably the easiest part of wedding planning. EAO were so easy to deal with and made the process super straight forward.
Mark Wells and Jason Bone were great on the night. They took requests and played to the crowd perfectly. We couldn’t have been happier.
– Alana | Wedding Reception | Sprout Dining | September 2019
EAO were seamless to work with and made the process very easy and stress free. They were answering my ‘checking in emails’ until the day before the wedding! We chose Adrianna Mac Trio as our band, they were phenomenal. We were running a bit late and they moved their sets around easily to accommodate us. They provided an amazing atmosphere which all of our guests really enjoyed, and the music choice/delivery was perfect. My husband and I are so happy and we highly recommend.
– Amber Halverson | Wedding Reception | Mangrove Mountain | September 2019
I just wanted to say the biggest thank you to Tre Soul who performed at our wedding on Friday. Matt and I had the BEST night and myself and most of my friends never left the dance floor because the music was THAT good! Everyone at the wedding said it was the best band they have ever heard at a wedding and I don’t think I could have chosen better!! They were incredible.
– Shannon & Matt | Wedding Reception | Cockfighters Ghost Wines | September 2019
We had VOGUE at our wedding at 48 Watt St. and…….. WOW they were truly amazing!!! The quality of the sets were perfect from the dinner music to the dancing it set the mood for the night and the band members are so talented Jordi’s voice is just amazing! We were so impressed words cannot describe how thrilled we were to have them play at our wedding. We would HIGHLY recommend VOGUE they made the night perfect!. Thank you VOGUE and thank-you EAO Entertainment for making the booking process work so well.
– Emily Unicomb | Wedding Reception |48 Watt Street | August 2019
Anyerin Trio were excellent and many of out guests were very complimentary. We didn’t get a chance to thank them personally on the night so please send on our gratitude to them. Also, thank you to EAO for your organization and professionalism in the build up to the wedding. We really appreciated it.
– Emmett and Lisa | Wedding Reception |Margan Wines | July 2019
We just want to say a huge thank you from both of us with this whole experience and Phonic Duo, they were absolutely great.We cannot fault anything and everything ran smooth and no hiccups. The whole booking process with you guys was perfect, I will be recommending everything and coming back to you guys again in the future.
Brittany | Wedding Reception | Rafferty’s Resort | April 2019
Everything went perfectly with the day and The After Party. Booking through EAO was nice and easy. Plenty of information about the bands, samples and song lists were extremely helpful. On the day, the band were amazing. They followed our times with no questions asked. The music suited the mood of the room as it changed throughout the night and at no point was it overbearing or drowning out the conversations throughout and added to the overall atmosphere. They kept the dance floor busy all night.
James Rigby | Wedding Reception | 48 Watt Street | April 2019
We were very happy with Anyerin’s performance. He is very accommodating and likes to please. He knows how to work a crowd and all our guests loved him. The booking process was easy. Anyerin was easy going and went with the flow, eager to please us and the guests. We were all very, very happy with the event. Thankyou EAO and Anyerin for making Tom’s 21st Birthday Party special!
Nikki | 21st Birthday | Borambie Hall | April 2019
We had a fantastic night last night and Love-That-Hat was a massive hit. So many guests came up to us to let us know how fantastic they were.
Marina | Wedding | Private Property | May 2019
Oh my goodness we had THE BEST DAY/NIGHT EVER!!! Seriously was epic. Everyone is still buzzing from it. I have bruises all over my leg from playing Marisas’s tambourine. On a serious note, Jason and Marissa were incredibly professional, engaging, talented and super fun. We’d highly recommend!!
Natalie and Adam | Wedding Ceremony, Canapes & Reception | Goonoo Goonoo Station | May 2019
Joy Duo were amazing! All the guests said they were phenomenal, both Jessica’s voice and David’s guitar skills! Booking process was too easy and very professional.
Tara | Wedding Ceremony & Canapes | Adams Peak Retreat | March 2019
The booking process at EAO was extremely simple and responsive, considering the length in time we booked in advance, everything worked out great. Dr Zoom were fantastic to deal with from start to finish, they were on time.. hassle free and extremely professional in every regard. They made an effort to get to know my wife and I before the day and were a large talking point from our guests about the quality of their act. Would recommend any time 5/5.. 10/10.. 100/100 with a gold star as well. Thank you for everything EAO, they were truly one of the highlights of the evening and we appreciate everything you and EAO has done to help make it happen.
Alex Garred & Grace Garred | Wedding Reception | Private Residence | April 2019
We absolutely LOVED The Rumour Trio. They sounded sensational and were really happy, positive people who worked around our late start to the wedding reception. The Rumour Trio played a great selection of songs that suited us and our guests, many of whom were rarely off the dance floor! Their willingness to also learn a song for our first dance was greatly appreciated – it sounded amazing too. Karyn and Marty displayed such professionalism, but also their fun personalities and engagement with our guests was obvious. They were even happy to play an extra 3 songs at the end of the night, so we could keep dancing on the grass with sparklers!! Such a great group and a spectacular night! Thanks The Rumour Trio.
Penny & Roy | Wedding Reception | Pokolbin Community Hall | April 2019
Echo were the perfect accompaniment to our wedding reception. They were punctual, professional, and put on a popular performance. Our guests loved them, both musically and personally, as Jordi and Pat are just such lovely people. We were happy to include them in our polaroid guestbook and feed them our delicious vegan burgers and cake, that we knew they would appreciate. We can highly recommend them for any event, as they have such a versatile set list that can have people happily chilling or up dancing!
Jye Mitchell | Wedding Reception | The Registry at Black Hill | March 2019
The booking process easy and thorough. We loved the Anyerin Trio, we would definitely use them again. They were easy to work with, their music is great – great repertoire and sound quality – and overall top blokes! The feedback from people was that they loved them and would use them also.
Peter Hartnett | 21st Birthday | Private Residence | March 2019
I cannot thank you enough! Jake was absolutely fantastic and created an amazing atmosphere at our wedding. We are so grateful for your recommendation and your help throughout the planning process for our wedding. Jake Folbigg performed at our wedding ceremony and reception. He was great to work with and was able to play all the songs we requested. He has a great repertoire and lovely coastal acoustic sound. We are so glad Jake was able to play at our wedding and would highly recommend him.
Olivia and Duncan | Wedding Canapes & Reception | Peterson House | March 2019
Megan is just beautiful! She suited the style of our wedding so brilliantly, and learnt additional songs outside of her set list for us, even when I requested them with very little notice. She has an amazing voice, and presence, and so many of our guests commented on how wonderful she was! We would book her again 100 times over without hesitation!! The biggest thank-you to Megan for adding her special touch to our perfect wedding day!
The booking process; easy!! Its incredible how many vendors just don’t respond, or take days/weeks to respond to enquiries, and that is one thing that stood out with you! The communication was always quick, easy and friendly. I’ll definitely recommend EAO for any of my friends having events in the future.
Sam Connop| Wedding Ceremony & Reception | Awaba House |
Everything went great on our wedding day. Gareth was amazing and incredibly professional. I received so many compliments from family and friends about Gareth. I would absolutely recommend him to everyone for any function. The booking process was so easy and Lisa you were great to deal with. You made it so easy for Katie and I and you were very informative and understanding.
Thanks so much for your help during this process, we really appreciate it.
Kyle & Katie | Wedding Ceremony, Canapes & Reception | Private Residence, Tamworth | March 2019
Just wanted to say thank you to EAO and Tre Soul for helping us out on our big day. The band were amazing and everything went off without a hitch. I didn’t get to talk to the band much on the day but can you please tell them a massive thank you! They sounded great and everyone loved them. And to EAO, thanks for being so helpful!!
Katrina | Wedding Ceremony & Reception | Peppers Barrel Room, Pokolbin | February 2019
Jake Folbigg performed at our wedding ceremony and reception. He was great to work with and was able to play all the songs we requested. He has a great repertoire and lovely coastal acoustic sound. We are so glad Jake was able to play at our wedding and would highly recommend him.
The DJ provided the DJ set for our wedding reception. They were great to work with and very proactive. The DJ was more than happy to play our set playlist for the set which we were greatly appreciative of. They also provided DJ lights and spotlight for our first dance. The DJ was very helpful and played exactly what we wanted, I would highly recommend them.
Emily Hull | Wedding Ceremony & Reception | Murrays Brewery, Bob’s Farm| December 2018
A huge thanks to Phonic Trio for being the perfect band for our big day! We were looking for a band to make our wedding a night to remember, and Phonic certainly nailed this through their great performance and epic sound. They also went above and beyond to learn a few of our favourite songs we requested which made our night extra magical. Great tunes, great vibe, great band!
Lauren | Wedding Reception | Hamilton’s Oyster, Tuncurry | December 2018
Thank you for the opportunity to say how much we absolutely loved having Jake Folbigg perform at our wedding. I asked if Jake might be able to learn a song with personalised lyrics that I had written. I initially thought this might be asking a bit too much, but Jake did the most amazing job and it was an absolute highlight of our ceremony. We had so many comments from guests who loved the song and the way Jake sang it. We were meant to be signing our marriage certificate while he sang it but we just wanted to listen to him because he did an awesome job (he had to play an extra song to fill time so we could do what we were meant to be doing after haha). We can’t say how much we appreciate the time and effort he put into learning it for us. We also loved having him at the reception where he helped to set a relaxed and happy mood for the evening.
To sum up, Jake added so much to our day and was professional while also being personal. Thank you so much for pointing us in Jake’s direction and for coordinating and organising it all. We would highly recommend Jake and EAO without any reservations.”
Laura & Andrew Le Bas | Wedding Ceremony & Reception | 48 Watt Street | December 2018
I couldn’t have been happier with everything. Even though communication was mostly through emails you were very prompt and very thorough. I have a couple of photos of Jason Bone, who was better than I expected and everyone during the reception raved about him. He spoke with me to check in on me, and he was able to adapt to changes in the course of events. Amazing!
Veronica Redgrove nee Donkin | Wedding Ceremony, Canapes & Reception | Tocal Homestead | November 2018
The day went beautifully, we had an absolute ball. We want to pass a massive thank you on to the Mark Wells Trio and their support, having Mark for our day and Trio for reception was incredible and made a huge difference! I think all the guests really enjoyed their time dancing the night away.
Ben | Wedding Ceremony, Canapes & Reception | Hunter Valley | November 2018
Everything went so well & the band were amazing! We had three “musts” for our wedding: great food, relaxed vibe, and great music and the boys certainly delivered. They kept everyone dancing, were a pleasure to chat with (& funny!), It felt like we had friends playing at our wedding.
All of our guests raved about the band & we could not be happier about our choice to go with Tre Soul. The band organised a surprise for us about halfway through our reception where they had our daughter sing a song with them on stage dedicated to us it was so beautiful and took us completely by surprise. They created beautiful memories for us that I could never have dreamed of.
The booking process with EAO was seamless. I was really not into the administration side of planning the wedding, and you kept me on track each step of the way which was very appreciated!!
Jessica & Anthony Redman | Wedding | Broughtons at The Bay | October 2018
I had such fantastic reports from guests from both Ryan Daley and The Big Bang.
Unfortunately, the bridal party were away from the venue during Ryan’s set, but we did get a glimpse and he was more than accommodating being able to play live snippets of songs for the bridal party entrance. I can’t thank him enough for this. It went off without a hitch. Great spot to have him and I have a number of guests wanting his details and wanting to know where they can go and listen to him locally!
The Big Bang was also fabulous! I think I danced all night (bride) along with a number of other guests. The music was easy to dance to, playing old classics and they even played our first and second dance songs live! This was wonderful and has such special memories. The booking process was seamless and I would most certainly use EAO again if I were to have an event in the Hunter and would happily recommend to others.
Ellie | Wedding Canapes & Reception | Margan Wines | October 2018
Mark Wells is simply one of the best live acts going around. We had heard Mark play at numerous live venues in Newcastle during our uni days and were such big fans! We hired him for our wedding and he did not disappoint. Mark has an amazing ability to read the energy and mood of the crowd which meant that there was music for everyone. All of our guests were highly complimentary of how good Mark sounded and many noted he is a born entertainer. Not only did Mark deliver on the night but his management was great to deal with in the lead-up.
Thanks to Mark and EAO Entertainment for all your help without big day!
David & Bec | Wedding | Waldara Farm | October 2018
The band were amazing, everyone commented on how great they were and we all had such a great time.
Uptown really helped make our wedding become a party! They catered to our song request for our first dance and just blew everyone away with how amazing they were. So many of our guests commented on how great they were. Would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for an exceptional band.
Thanks again, and please pass on our thanks to the band.
Katharine & Jay | Wedding | Pacific Palms | September 2018
Anyerin was absolutely amazing for our wedding last weekend! Everyone commented on how beautiful his performance was. Thank you so much!
Gabbi & Luke | Wedding | October 2018
It was so nice to have Jake Folbigg be apart of the best day of our lives. He absolutely nailed it! He totally got our vibe for the day and everyone commented on how good he was.
Megan Huber | Wedding | October 2018
Mark Wells, we have no words to describe how good he was. He read the crowd so well and interacted well with them. Everyone was up dancing and he made it so personal in every way. Everyone kept commenting on how good his performance was and how they created an amazing atmosphere for the dance floor.
He was unbelievable along with Jason Bone. We could not recommend him highly enough! EAO made the whole process so easy and stress-free. We had no idea how smoothly it would go but everything just flowed so well.
We are just so speechless and impressed with The Mark Wells Duo-UNBELIEVABLE!! We were just saying today how lucky we were that we were able to book Mark Wells. It was the absolute best!!
Mr & Mrs Kelso| Wedding | Wandin Hunter Valley | October 2018
Marissa+2 was FANTASTIC!! She can gauge the crowd really well and boy can she perform!! We’ve had nothing but praise on her performance from all our guests whom are mostly musicians also, so tough crowd!!. I hope I get to see her perform again soon! Thanks again!
Joanne | Wedding | Wandin Valley Estate | September 2018
Thank you so much!! Everything went so well with the band, they actually went above my expectations and their take on our first dance was just so beautiful! Uptown are amazing! I think the band has good interactions with people! They read the crowd and played songs to suit. We requested a few songs in which they played and I was super happy about. They created a great vibe for the guests and kept people dancing, happy and having fun. Lastly, their interpretation of our first dance gave me goosebumps as it was just perfect! Highly recommend them!
Angela | Wedding | Circa 1876 | September 2018
The wedding went spectacularly well, and Mark Wells played a very important part in it all. His performance at the ceremony, including the sing-along, were spot-on. We’re just reminiscing and wishing we had recorded the event as it would be lovely to relive the music. The reception performance was also excellent. we have had so many friends tell us that the dance floor was the most fun thanks to the band. They were full of energy, capable of playing any request and could read their audience. Who knew that dancing the Hokey Pokey was exactly how we wanted the night to end!
And thank you for all your help in facilitating this. The booking process was very easy and you pre-empted all the necessary information to ensure the day went smoothly.
Tim & Louise | Wedding | September 2018
We had the most incredible day! Tre Soul was beyond amazing! Everyone was up on the dance floor for the majority of the night and everyone raved about the amazing music and atmosphere at the wedding. The band were a big part of this!
We were just so so pleased with the whole process. All of my questions have been answered so promptly throughout the process and I have felt so confident that everything would be well organised- as it was!!
Thanks again for everything! Everything was just amazing. I wish we could relive the day/ night every weekend!
Alana | Wedding | September 2018
It was absolutely perfect! Mark was great! Happy to chat with us and all the guests throughout the night, played a whole range of songs that made everyone hop up and dance!
Emily | Wedding | August 2018
Tre Soul were amazing. They were so accommodating and flexible with changes to timeline/delays. They sounded amazing and made the night so much fun. Everyone had something good to say about the band. Song selection was great and the atmosphere of the entire night was such a high with the help of the music and energy provided by Tre Soul.
Matt & Emily Bartley | Wedding | August 2018
Anyerin, we couldn’t have dreamt of a better guy to play at our wedding. You are such an incredible musician and definitely know how to get the crowd on the dance floor. Everything was perfection from the ceremony to reception.
We are so glad that we found you to be apart of our special day.
Anyerin was willing and more than capable of learning new songs just to make our day special. Your personality is infectious and we got so many comments on how good our solo musician was. Our recommendation is if it’s not Anyerin your starting on the back foot. Highly recommended 110%.
Nadine | Wedding | July 2018
The Mark Wells Trio were absolutely fantastic and perfectly suited for our wedding day! All of our guests are still raving a week later about the band and how much fun they were! Mark went above and beyond to learn our ceremony songs and the band even learnt our first dance song which was such a special surprise on our day! Thank you so much for making our day so memorable! Please tell Mark we had such a great night, they are such a good band. Everyone danced the night away!!!!! The Trio was AMAZING!!!!! Thank you soo much!
Lauren Pryce | Wedding | May 2018
We recently hired Anyerin to perform at both our ceremony and reception and we couldn’t have hoped for a better artist. He had a very comprehensive list of songs he could perform and was more than happy to learn a few special songs for our day.
On the day his manner was professional and yet casual and his performances were incredible! He had the dance floor jam packed immediately after our first dance and maintained such a buzzing atmosphere throughout the night.
The positive feedback we received from our guests about Anyerin has been endless and many have said he’s one of the best live acts they’ve seen! When we next hold a large gathering Anyerin will undoubtedly be the first person we contact!
Everything was fantastic for our wedding! Thank you so much for being such a pleasure to deal with, especially scrambling last minute when we didn’t have a band.
Anyerin Trio were incredibly professional and were absolutely perfect for what we wanted on the night.
All of our guests danced all night and everyone loved the playlist. The band are so incredibly talented and we absolutely loved them! I was over the moon when the band started to play our first dance song, learning it in such short notice and they nailed it!
Thank you again to everyone for ensuring Jamie & I had the best night of our lives and couldn’t stop smiling!
Thank you for all your help, our day was perfect. Thank you for assisting with planning how our day would run it took so much stress off myself!
Anyerin was absolutely amazing!! We were blown away with how talented he was and the fact he could play almost anything! He picked up the vibe of our wedding perfectly and the guests kept commenting on how good the entertainment was. Thank you again!
The booking process with EAO was exceptional, as we were planning everything for our wedding day, it was fantastic that once we told the team, we know they would deliver and pass over all the info to our band.
I was very happy with the service, happy with the communication, response times and all aspects from EAO admin side, a happy customer.
Tre Soul we’re exceptional. They were professional, fun, enthusiastic and engaged so well with the wedding party and guests. With our run sheet changing and things were delayed, the band were most gracious and once the party started, the dance floor was LIT! My wife and I were so stoked that we could have Tre Soul at our wedding, it was a day we will remember for a lifetime. They were incredible and we had so many compliments about how amazing the band was.
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 aficionado Jason Bone and the dance floor 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.
Thanks again for your excellent assistance in organising and helping us choose the music for our Wedding you have been a pleasure to deal with.
Phil & Melanie Kiehne
Thank you again. It has been a wonderful experience working with you on the entertainment for our wedding. Your efficiency, customer service focus and attention to detail have been exemplary.
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 sometime in the future.
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!
We would like to say a BIG thank you to EAO for all your assistance in providing the best and most cost effective line-up of entertainment for the inaugural BARRELLED festival.
If you could kindly pass on our thanks to all of the entertainers, they were an absolute delight to work with and gave it their all during their performances. They really added value to the event.
We thank you once again for sharing our vision in bringing a quality event to the shores of Merewether during Surfest.
Louise & Gus Maher | BARRELLED Festival | Jefferson Park, Merewether | Hunter Valley Events | March 2019
Dr Zoom Duo were already at the venue and fully set up half an hour before the event commenced. The guys were really nice to deal with and they stuck to the run sheet. Their song selection was a varied cross section of new and old and Marty can sure belt out a tune. It’s no wonder he was an Australian Idol finalist!!
Jason Morris | Raine and Horne Newcastle | Corporate Christmas Party | Merewether Surfhouse | December 2018
This is the third Christmas function we have been entertained by 2 Good Reasons. They are absolutely brilliant and engaged our crowd of 130 people aged from 25-60. They had the dance floor full! There versatility makes them the perfect choice for any occasion.
Sally Dunn | Veolia Environmental Services | Corporate Christmas Party | December 2018
Thank you for organising Tom Christie for our Grand Opening! The day was a huge success and has had wonderful feedback from not only the team, but the general public.
Tom was so wonderful and we would very much appreciate if you could send our sincere thank you on, as he truly did help make the day a success.
Briana Ruggiero, Marketing Administrator | Deeperwater Plaza, Woy Woy Store Opening | Ozmosis | December 2018
Adrianna and Josh were absolutely amazing, they were accommodating and flexible to our needs on the night. Their musical talent is beyond belief with a wide range of songs that everybody loved! I would highly recommend Adrianna Mac Duo to anyone hosting an event and I will definitely be using them again!
Chelsea Shiels | Corporate Christmas Party | AI Insurance | December 2018
We had a wonderful night! Uptown were punctual and instantly built rapport with the audience. The music was great, the band were friendly and fun and everyone had a great time!
Rinay Fau, Executive Assistant Brand Ambassador | Becton Dickinson Medical Technology Company | Corporate Event | November 2018
Adrianna Mac Duo went over and above the expected for any normal gig. Supercars is a challenging event and Adrianna Mac were flexible, accommodating and made the whole process super easy. Special thanks for coming in super late!
We used Adrianna Mac Duo for our Supercars Trackside Suite and they absolutely exceeded expectations. Adrianna Mac Duo performance complimented our room perfectly and with so much excitement going on around them they were exactly what we needed to balance our event.
Jessie Nash | Southern Cross Austereo Supercars Suite | November 2018
We LOVED Jake he’s a 12 out of 10 performance! And genuinely a lovely person. We will definitely use him again for future events. The vibe of the evening was fantastic and everyone had a wonderful time. Many of our customers commented on Jake’s performance and how great he was. Thanks again for organising!
Nicole Ritchie | Customer Appreciation Weekend | Jayco Newcastle | October 2018
Pete G is a great artist! This is the 2nd year we have used him and will happily keep booking him. He is very professional ( arrives more than 2 hours before to get set-up) and he is such a talented and easy musician. He appeals to all generations with an awesome voice, varied music selection and a pleasure to listen to. Pete created a great mood as he played music whilst people were having dinner and then getting people up and dancing afterwards “cracker of an evening”. Thanks, Peter for joining us once again and helping us celebrate.
Ramsy Barker | Awards Night Port Waratah Coal Services | October 2018
We have been working with Mark for over 10 years for our corporate events, and we have never been disappointed. All of the guys on Sunday worked tirelessly to give it they’re all for the guests and the guests loved them!!!
From the moment the guests arrived off the coaches they were right there to greet them with big smiles and catchy tunes engaging and having fun with them.
Over lunch they played non stop for over an hour and there weren’t too many times that the dance floor wasn’t full. The guests got so excited they were up on stage dancing with the band it was such a great sight!”
Louise Maher | Hunter Valley Events | September 2018
Once again, Andy provided exceptional musical talent. He really is a joy to have attended our events. All staff and customers alike rave about his music.
Sarah Robson | Jayco Newcastle
The Hummingbirds were amazing! The softer music was perfect during dinner and they amped it up so everyone was dancing by the end of the night. Thanks for everything.
Holly Edmunds | Sidcor
Our ‘Ladies Day’ went really well, all the ladies who talked to me would not stop raving about it. And Vogue, as they did before, rocked the house down. It was a massive success. Vogue are quite simply an amazing band. Jordie and the Boys are consummate professionals and have performed at two of events now, you can be sure there will be a third. I can not recommend them highly enough.
Maitland Rugby Club | Ladies Day
Marissa was fantastic, we had guests asking who she was with positive praise after just 3 songs. She played music which suited the scene and guests perfectly. She also worked very well with the AV manager and our run sheet to ensure she was perfectly timed with the running of our event. We hope to have her back again soon. Thanks Marissa!!!
The guys were just fabulous! They really made the night! 3 of a Kind were great for our conference networking event. They were high energy, fun and got people up dancing. I would definitely book them again! Thanks guys, you were a pleasure to work with and sounded great.
Caroline | Rezfest
Andy is simply amazing and everyone had a fantastic time. As well as being a very talented artist, Andy is a lovely guy and very easy to deal with. He plays suitable music to the crowd and knows how to leverage off what they are after.Thanks Andy we will definitely have you at one of our events again real soon. The booking process and overall customer service experience with EAO was nothing short of amazing, definitely a great company to work with and we will definitely engage your services again.
Sarah Robson | Jayco Newcastle
It was a pleasure working with Lisa in finding an artist to perform for our corporate event. She was very helpful and the artist we chose (Jake Folbigg) was a huge success he created such a great atmosphere for the occasion.
Jake Folbigg did a fantastic job and everyone was super excited to see him perform again (as he performed at our conference back in 2016). It was a great night had by all. Thank you so much for your assistance with everything it all went smoothly.
Angela Lam | The Smith Family
Dealing with you guys has been outstanding, you have made it very easy for me, the whole booking process was very simple.
Manon | Belmont Golf Club
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.
Belinda Doyle | McDonald’s
Everything went fantastic on the night. The guys were fabulous & so friendly, accommodating & talented. Thank you for such an easy process in booking the artists & will definitely look forward to coming back to you next year.

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 well-being 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
The night went great, went off without a hitch and nearly everyone was surprised Daniel was lovely and was the perfect fit for the night. There was no need to give him a play list as he knew exactly what to play for his audience. He had everyone up dancing and we had lots of compliments from our guests. Daniel definitely contributed to making a good night, great.
I also can’t thank you enough Lisa for making the whole process so easy for me. I will definitely be recommending you to my friends.
Tanyah | 50th Birthday |Private Residence, Speers Point | March 2019
The Hummingbirds were fantastic thank you! Great band, great singer and a really good selection of songs for us to sing and dance to.I booked the band for my friend’s 40th birthday and she loved it. Can’t recommend the Hummingbirds highly enough! The whole process from booking to the night was seamless.
Amanda Sullivan | 40th Birthday Party | Harbourview Function Centre, Newcastle | February 2019
Everything was so great! The organisation from EAO before the event was seamless and Mark Wells was AMAZING! We will definitely be working with EAO and Mark in particular again in the future. All the best to Mark and thank you again,
Sarah Roberts | Wine Club Event | Brokenwood Wines, Pokolbin | February 2019
2 Good Reasons were outstanding at our presentation day. Everybody I’ve spoken to since have said of how much fun they had and how good the entertainment was, they even had people up dancing which I never thought would of happened and were happy to play any requests that anyone had. I would also like to thank EAO for everything you did during the booking process, I would have no hesitation in using or recommending to anyone else for any functions in the future.
Andrew Jones | Snooker Club Presentation Day | Valentine Bowling Club | December 2018
Our recent weekend District Lions Convention ended with a dinner dance featuring The Big Bang. Everyone thought they were great! They created a party atmosphere with fabulous music and fun to celebrate our event. They had no problem catering for any age range from mid 30s to 70s. The music selection was the soundtrack of our lives. We can highly recommend The Big Bang for any similar large event.
Diana Stewart | District Lions Convention Party | Club Macquarie | November 2018
Jade Holland Band performed excellently and it fit the theme and environment perfectly. On a personal note, Jade was very friendly and easy going, which made accommodating for her and the band a very pleasant experience. Please know that I will be recommending her for any functions in the future where a great singer and band is needed.
We appreciate your assistance throughout the booking process. Your effort to get it through the door made all of our jobs easier in organising this event.
Matthew Johnson Lieutenant Troop Commander | Private Function Lavarack Barracks | Townsville | November 2018
The Andy Show was brilliant. He was very approachable from the very beginning and discussed how we would like the order of events to go at the party. Andy explained that he would start off with a light set while people were still talking and eating and then move it up when people were starting to dance which suited the crowd brilliantly.
Many people from the event were asking where I had located The Andy Show and said “he is brilliant, I will be getting him for my next event”. Andy was very happy to have people singing in the microphone while the break was on and allowed for fun to be had. A range of music was played which suited all. The night was so much fun and less stressful knowing we had amazing entertainment. The Andy Show will definitely be at my next event.
Claudia Wilkinson | Surprise 50th Birthday Party | Settlers Arms Guesthouse, Dungog | November 2018
Jessica had everyone up and dancing once we had finished eating… which is exactly what we wanted! Jessica was very flexible and easy to work with. The playlist was perfect for our event and Jessica had everyone up and dancing once the formal activities and food were finished. I would definitely book Jessica again and highly recommend Jessica for events!
Holly Smith | Stop Ovarian Cancer Fundraiser Long Lunch | Little Beach Boathouse | October 2018
We just wanted to say a huge thank you to Tre Soul! They were beyond amazing! Our 18 & 21-year-old had the best experience ever. Their friends were super receptive to the live band and everyone was up and dancing all night. Tara and Jack’s Birthday Party was legendary and it was made that way thanks to Tre Soul.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We were feeling very blessed on Sunday with our children, their friends, our family. Just can’t thank them enough!
Julie & Justin | Birthday Party | September 2018
We thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment. Megan Core was fantastic and really got the vibe of the day started. All of the guests have still been talking about it.
Nicole | Hens Weekend | Hunter Valley
Sue & Mikey were amazing, loved every minute of it!
Chelsea Pringle | 60th Birthday
Everything about the party was perfect, I had the BEST night celebrating with family and friends and the music from Mark completed the night making for a rocking dance floor.
Mark Wells suited my 30th Birthday perfectly, Mark has the ability to play to the crowd and had everyone up dancing with each set he played. Mark was only too happy to take requests from the guests and even played “The Horses” three times just for the birthday girl! I would recommend both EAO and Mark Wells to anyone looking to organise a party or event, I can’t recommend him more highly.
Jacinta Allen | 30th Birthday Party
Tom Christie performed at our engagement party and was fantastic! He played a great range of music completely appropriate to the occasion and audience, everyone at our engagement party commented on how good he was. Tom was a pleasure to interact with on the night, he was very professional and independent and his performance provided the perfect accompaniment to a special night for us. He arrived right on time, set himself up quickly and played beautifully throughout our event. We would absolutely recommend Tom to anyone looking for a performer to compliment their event.
The booking process with EAO was great. Lisa has been very friendly and accommodating, and has been prompt in responding to all enquiries. Our booking request was fairly last minute but the entertainment sourced via EAO was outstanding quality. I would definitely recommend booking through EAO.
Oscar & Jaden | Engagement Party
Just wanted to let you know how happy we were with Hayden Johns on Saturday night at my party. Very professional and perfect for the night! I would definitely recommend him to anyone for any occasion. All our guest also commented on how good he was as well.
Marilyn Fleming | 70th Birthday Party
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 night. The booking process was straightforward and all went smoothly. Paul and Karen. The band were brilliant and made the night. We would have no hesitation using EAO Entertainment 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.
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.
