Corporate Testimonials

“The Graduates performed at our Christmas in July function last year to an audience of over 100 key corporate partners and did a spectacular job! Michael was extremely friendly & professional from the outset which helped to make life a lot easier knowing we were dealing with someone reliable. The music they chose was perfect for our event and made everyone feel nostalgic for a cosy winter Christmas. I cannot recommend The Graduates highly enough! We will absolutely be booking them for future events.”

JOHN SHIN, Marketing Manager – Allianz

“I can’t recommend this band enough! We used the band for a two-week corporate event for the launch of a new vehicle. They have been an absolute pleasure to work with and the music simply does not disappoint! From start to finish Michael is terrific to deal with. He is always polite and well organised. The group is totally self-sufficient. They brought all their own PA and equipment. Just give them a space to play and some power. It’s easy. The music is tantalizing with a plethora of different tunes ready to adapt to the mood and requirement at a moment’s notice. This band have so much fun whilst they play and this simply resonates to the audience and is a pleasure to watch and listen to. Don’t look anywhere else. Don’t waste anymore time searching for a band. Book The Graduates!……. or as we have come to know them by, The Gradu-A8s. Thanks guys. We’ll be seeing you again!”

ROB HODGES, Training Specialist – Audi Australia

KAITLYN BENNETT, Events Coordinator – The Hotel School

“The Graduates Duo performed earlier this week at a corporate event for us at Beta Bar Sydney. Throughout the whole booking process, Michael was excellent to deal with and extremely responsive. Their performance was perfect and really enjoyed by our client and their guests. We would definitely book The Graduates again for another corporate event. Thank you!”

CARA ELLIOTT, Director – Ashton & Elliott

“We recently hired The Graduates for our End-of-Year ‘Gatsby’ Event. We can’t recommend them highly enough. The music was great, the guys were fantastic and so lovely to deal with. It was such a great night. We would hire them again in a heartbeat.”

RENAI ROBERTS, Executive Assistant – Metricon Homes

“We hired The Graduates Jazz Band for our corporate event in Sydney and they were incredible. The lead up to the event was effortless to arrange with them. They were on-time and didn’t fuss around in their set up. They were ready to go once the event started and they played the most incredible jazz. We can’t wait to hire them for our next event and possibly upgrade to a 4-5 piece combination.”

SALLY MORRISON, Specification Consultant – Street Furniture Australia

“The Graduates have been entertaining Macquarie University’s graduates and their guests for the past six years. Their mix of songs and energetic performances create the perfect atmosphere for our celebrations. We are constantly receiving positive feedback as they delight our diverse crowd. When organising large events, it is great to know that we can count on The Graduates’ talent and professionalism.” 

KATE MAITLAND, Events Manager – Macquarie University

“We searched high and low for a duo or trio which could add an element of class to our in-office launch. We were so happy with the Bass and Piano Duo. They played perfect background music upon our guests’ arrival and then jazzed things up a bit after the talks to get the party vibe going. Excellent quality and high calibre musicians. Would highly recommend to anyone!”

JOANNA JABLONKA, Head of Marketing – Global 360 Degrees

“My corporate event would not have been as successful as it was without The Graduates. Extremely talented, professional and just all-round nice guys. I look forward to having you perform at my future events and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to my network. Thank you Mike and Marcello!”

CATHERINE TOMIC, Head of Marketing & Development – Ash St.

“Booked the band for our organisation’s virtual awards night and filmed them in a studio in advance of the event. Mike and the band were a pleasure to work with, reliable and professional as well as fun! They are extremely talented musicians whose music and charm will really help to create some atmosphere and a 1920’s vibe for our event. Would highly recommend and book again. Thanks guys!”

CHLOE DIAS, Events Manager – Australian Institute of Project Management

“The Graduates were a fantastic band to hire for our awards night festivities. Upon calling The Graduates to hire them, we were told that the usual lineup were booked for another event on the same day. However Michael was extremely helpful in helping us gather additional members for a jazz trio so we were able to go ahead with The Graduates without needing to source another prospect for providing music. I highly recommend this band for their above and beyond customer service, speedy communication and of course, lovely music!”

VIVIAN HE, Events Coordinator – Australian Institute of Architects

“Whether you’re planning your wedding, organising a corporate event, or coordinating your own private party, the members of The Graduates understand just how important music is for the success of your event. Throughout a difficult period for planning live events in 2021, The Graduates were extremely accommodating to our requests in planning the event. Their performance was faultless and exactly what was required to allow for a large corporate awards event.”

BRODIE EASTON, Public Affairs Manager – Lighting Council Australia

“I highly recommend Mike and Nic – they performed at my work’s 5th anniversary event for 80 people. Their music turned a standard corporate function into an entertaining and memorable night. Thank you!”
