Here are what some clients had to say about the Steve Morrison Jazz Band:

Murray and Leanne Goldschmidt – Private Birthday Party, Eastern Suburbs
We were looking for a band for a 90th birthday party we were hosting. That is, a joint 90th, between me and my wife.
So we wanted a band that could play some classy music and also keep the momentum up to deliver an enduring event. I contacted Steve by phone one evening while driving home. We discussed the type of event and type of music we like. And from that moment on, it was all seamless and set. We provided a list of favourite tunes. Surprisingly, I introduced Steve to some new music as well!
The booking process was a cinch. Come the night of our event, Steve arrived and setup all the gear, including and array of lighting to set the mood and he sported a new smoke making machine with an assortment of functions.
The music was nothing short of sensational! We hosted a big event, and despite people all having different tastes in music, everyone was on a unity ticket on this one. Literally dozens of people commented the following day how amazing the band was.
To make the night extra special, there was an unexpected guest appearance. We have some friends who are musicians, who after politely asking us if they could play a few songs, approached the band in the most professional manner to see if they could sing us a few songs. Steve setup their gear and completely unscripted, and without knowing their music or style, within a few chords, Steve started strumming along on his Double Bass. Then the drummer joined and then the pianist. Our friends had an instantaneous band with musicians they had never met or played with; and there were no charts. The following day they commented to us how talented each musician was and what an ensemble they were!
It is little wonder that our party was such a great success. Good-on-yah Steve and all the musicians! Thanks for making the night extra special.

St George Girls Selective High School – Centenary Dinner at Novotel Brighton
Dear Steve and Steve Morrison Band members,
What a wonderful evening we had last Friday being entertained by the Steve Morrison Band. Many people commented on the excellent music and what an appropriate choice your band was for the occasion. The dinner music selection was most enjoyable, and the dance music afterwards was a lot of fun, and a great way for a group of teachers and ex-students to let their hair down and finish off the week.
We would just like to thanks you for the wonderful evening of music you gave us at our Centenary Dinner – a most appropriate way to enjoy the culmination of 100 great years!
St George GHS Centenary Team
Debbie Hall – Birthday Party @ St George Motor Boat Club Sans Souci
Thank you Steve, Steve and Tim for your most enjoyable musical contribution to our evening. I really appreciated your support in getting the gig off the ground. On the night, your band was always professional, yet personal, thoroughly engaging, and in keeping with the theme of the night, you looked and sounded sensational! Loved the tuxes and the lights! It was exactly what I asked for – the piano bar feel, and very tastefully done. So many friends commented – they all loved you! You can’t beat a live jazz band … with just a touch of Latin and a lot of class! Hoping I can find an excuse for another one at some stage.
Yvette Dal Mas – Law Partners Corporate Event in Sydney CBD
Just a quick note to say you guys were just fantastic….really talented musicians who created the perfect atmosphere for our event and you have all been a complete pleasure to deal with!!

David & Chika – Wedding at Killara Golf Club
Chika and I would like to thank you and the guys for the music last night.
The music was great and really matched the mood of the night. Several guests made compliments.
Chika and I were really pleased with how things went.

Damien & Liz Briggs – Wedding at The Hydro Majestic Meadlow Bath
If you are looking to turn a special event into a real celebration, we recommend Steve Morrison and his band.
In May 2015 we were enticed into a wine bar in Milsons Point by the music and that’s where we first heard Steve and his band. We were so impressed we recommended his band to our daughter and her fiancé. We booked Steve and his band for the wedding which was held at the Hydro Majestic on 5 December 2015. Steve was happy to travel to the Blue Mountains to perform.
Jeff Duff headed the band on the night and it was fantastic. A great mix of music had everyone dancing. A beautiful wedding celebration turned into a wonderful party – as the dance floor turned into a mosh pit. Jeff really engaged everyone – wandering around on the dancefloor (in his distinguished plaid suit) singing duets with many of the guests. Inhibitions were lost as some of the bride’s aunts shared their vocal skills!!

Sam & Hannah – Wedding Hydro Majestic
Steve and his band were the perfect addition to our wedding, with everyone dancing from 3 to 83 years old! The guests are still talking about how fantastic they were. The music style was perfect. Pleasure to work with and very accommodating, would recommend for any event!
Jonathan & Rebecca – Nielson Park Kiosk, Vaucluse 2015
The music that the Steve and the Band played at our wedding was truly perfect – really good volume during dinner, really classy (compared to so many other weddings I have been to where they had a DJ or a ‘party’ band), and excellent song choice.
The combination of Steve and the band and Jeff Duff singing works so well – the way they played had so much more style and originality than I could have hoped to have at my own wedding. Overall it was such a special day for us, and the music just added to that
Lauren & Robert – Wedding at The Carrington, Katoomba
My husband, Robert, and I were married in the Autumn of 2014; we celebrated our marriage with a ceremony at the Everglades Gardens in Leura, followed by a reception at the Grand Old Lady of the Mountains, the Carrington Hotel. The theme of our wedding was inspired by the Art Deco period. It was imperative that the band we selected delivered a Gatsby-esque style party and tempo.
The Steve Morrison Band did not fail to deliver. All band members dressed up in Art Deco theme and our wedding guests still remark that it was the best wedding they’ve ever attended, with the 5 piece band being the highlight of the evening. We even had our very own “Wedding Crashers” who had heard the band was in town and couldn’t resist a dance.
Thanks Steve and band for helping to make our day so memorable and fun!
Chris Gibbs – The Mint, Macquarie St Sydney
Hope you are well? Just wanted to touch base now that we are home and things have settled down to thank you for the music at our wedding. The group was exactly what we wanted and sounded fantastic. Everyone loved the group and we have had numerous comments about them.Thanks so much for all your time and work on this.
Kind regards, Chris Gibbs
Nicola and Shane – Ripples Restaurant, Chowder Bay Mosman
This is a quick email to say a HUGE THANK YOU for such a fantastic evening on saturday night! The band absolutely without a doubt made the night and we couldn’t be happier. You were on time, organised, played fantastically and most importantly put up with me so thank you very much!
We heard so many comments throughout the evening and all the next day about how great the band was and how nobody wanted to leave. That is the sign of a great evening so thank you!
I also heard a friend of mine took your card for her wedding so I hope to see you soon at hers! Thank you for making our night as great as it was and all the best of luck to you all!
Kind regards and happy easter! Nicola and Shane
Jess – Banjo Patterson’s Cottage, Gladesville
Just writing to say a huge thank you for playing at our wedding. A number of people just loved it and it made such a relaxing fun day for us.
Many thanks and good luck with everything – and apologises that you man did not get the garter – next time – though I had a few singles girls there.
All the best, Jess
Kym Lillyman – Lilianfels, Katoomba
This is just a belated email to say a big thank you to you and your band for playing so fantastically at our wedding at Lilianfels on the 11.11.11. Everyone has absolutely raved about you and you were such a special part of our wedding!
Thanks again! Kind regards
Mark & Julia Kinsela – Centenial Vinyards, Bowral
Good morning Steve. Julia and I are now back at work and recuperated from the excitement of pulling off the Wedding. Whilst there is a card on the way, I wanted to send you a couple of pictures and to say THANK YOU!!! There is no way in the world we could have had such an amazing day without your brilliant music and talent at reading crowds. All of our guests commented on how brilliant you were, with one friend telling me that they were now going to be Jazz fans! The father of my sister in law could not believe that you had Jeff singing and just kept saying “how did you get Jeff to sing at your Wedding”!!! A very dear friend simply said “this is my kind of music”. All Julia and I would like to say is Thank you! The night was so perfect and that, in no small part, was because of you. Please thank the rest of the band and pass these comments on to them. They made our Wedding perfect! We look forward to dropping in to see you play again some time soon. Hope your well and that the whole band enjoyed a safe and blessed Christmas and New Year. Kind regards Mark
Michael & Lisa Clarke
Thank you for playing for my Fathers’s 80th birthday January 7th 2012 in Terrigal. They were fantastic and made our evening unforgettable. The guests are still talking to us about it even weeks later. We were especially impressed with their versatility and willingness to make sure they connected with almost everyone at the party. The classic and latin jazz numbers they played throughout dinner really appealed to all ages and they quickly seemed to be able to read what the crowd wanted to hear. You all have great chemistry and play beautifully. As the night moved along, they worked very hard to get people up to dance and before long we had excellent dance numbers for young and old. We even had a conga line around the pool at one point.
Jeff Duff was fabulous with his great voice and tremendous experience. Despite only brief input from us, he was able to read the crowd and vary the content brilliantly. Although prior to the night we were not quite sure if Jeff would work for us, there was no doubt that he made the night. He and all the crew were absolute professionals and really wanted to make sure we had the best experience possible. Jeff even had a number of teenage girls wanting to have his picture taken with him afterwards so he is doing well! All the players are highly skilled professionals, keen to please and are really good people to have around. I have no hesitation in recommending the band for almost any occasion. Thank you so much for making our night so wonderful. Truly magic.

Vesna and Rolf – Lilianfels, Katoomba
I’m writing to sincerely thank you for the beautiful music you created for our wedding day. So many people commented about the level of skill that you and the band demonstrated, and the wonderful vibe you helped create through your music – it really contributed to the atmosphere of love and romance of the day. As you know, we chose to have our wedding videoed and I used some of the music you played as the background music to our DVD. I am taken back to the emotion of the day, to how I felt at every moment when I watch the DVD and can listen to the music you played that helped create the perfect experience for us and our guests.
I also really appreciate you and the band learning the song that we wanted to walk down the aisle to – it was perfectly played and meant a lot to us and I think shows the real talent that you and the band possess. Thanks also for your flexibility and willingness to make sure that our ‘key moments’, both at the ceremony and at the reception, were accompanied by the songs that were special to us, and for your patience and reassurance with my many questions and requests to ensure every musical detail of the day was just right!
Thanks once again and we hope to be able to come along to one of your future ‘gigs’ and re-experience the joy of our wedding day through your wonderful music!
Bernard and Alison – Shangri La, The Rocks, Sydney
Brilliant performance from Steve and the band, all the couple pretty much fall in love again under the musical spell.
The night went very smoothly and definitely an unforgettable moment when our song was played with an added Morrison touch.
Steve mixed very well with our family and friends, which can be described as expertly making new friends through laughter and his warm jokes.
His performance as an MC is very personal, and some of our relative actually mistaken him for a “very talented friend”
Thanks for joining us on our very special day Steve.
Charmaine & Carlo
Just wanted to send a HUGE THANKYOU for your wonderful entertainment on Saturday Night.
Your band’s presence definitely set the atmosphere we were hoping for!
You guys were great and we appreciate your CD it’s already playing in the car.
Our friends are raving about the night and your band.
We will touch base soon once our planning is underway for the wedding,
Stephen & Brigid Barbaro – Luna Park, Sydney
We had such a fantastic night with the music at our Engagement Party, we booked Steve and the band again for our Wedding. The music suited all ages and got everyone up onto the dancefloor. Memorable and great fun!
Mrs Melinda Poulton
I have nothing but good things to say about the ‘Steve Morrison Jazz Band.
They made my wedding reception at The Carrington Hotel in the blue mountains a perfect evening.
All my guests commented on the quality and classiness of the jazz band.
And best of all they were so friendly and helpful with the organisation, traveling quite a distance to play on my wedding day all at a very good price.
I would recommend this band to anyone, for any function. They really exceeded my expectations’
All of these comments are very true, please accept my overdue thank you to the band for your involvement in my wedding reception.
The smooth tones of the Steve Morrison Jazz Band were just perfect for our Jazz night dinner. The musicians themselves were professional and sensitive to what we were hoping to achieve, providing classy jazz that created a relaxed and enjoyable ambience to the evening. The standard of music was of the highest quality, thoroughly enjoyed by the musically literate and illiterate alike! Without a doubt, the Steve Morrison Jazz Band and their Jazzing abilities made the evening a success and I would highly recommend them for any function or special occasion where quality music is desired!
I just wanted to say thank you for helping to make my son’s 18th birthday party cruise a great night last weekend. Your choice of music and style of playing was excellent and really set the atmosphere for the black tie theme of the party. Several of the teenagers commented on how good the music was and how much they enjoyed the ‘feel’ it created. I will certainly keep you in mind for my next event.
The party was lots of fun and thanks again to you and your band for your entertainment.
I found the band very professional and thoroughly enjoyed your entertainment!!! Will definitely be booking the band again for future functions”
The music was great, just what we were after. I am looking forward to the next time I hear you.
Erica & Joel
I wanted to say thank you for playing at our wedding. We really appreciated it and had a great time. You really set the tone we were looking for. Thanks again.
