Hey Dan!

Dan and wanted to say a MASSIVE thanks for being the most amazing band at our wedding last weekend! We have had SO many comments about how good you were and how much fun the music was! 

Thanks also for playing the perfect version of Fly Me To The Moon - we didn't even make any mistakes and this is such a special memory for us.

One of the highlights of the whole night for us was being crowded in with you guys at the end, singing and dancing with our friends and family, and then your amazing acoustic song at the end. These are memories to last us a lifetime, so thank you so much. 

You have been an absolute pleasure to deal with and we look forward to coming to see you at some gigs!

Love Alex and Dan




Dear Dan,


Thank you so much for all your hard work and enthusiasm for this year's Australia Day Events. I'm sure that the many people you encountered would agree that you did a fantastic job. The response we have received the public, our sponsors and supporter's has all been positive and full of praise for the day. Many have claimed that this was the best Australia Day ever.

This year's Australia Day celebrations attracted a record attendance and its success is greatly due to your contribution.

It is through the support and professionalism of all the people involved in our events that make the Australia Day Celebrations an ongoing success. Please pass on all our thanks and gratitude to all your members who participated in last Saturday's celebrations. We hope you enjoyed the day as much as the thousands of people who attended the day's events.

All the best for the future. We look forward to working with you again.

Yours Sincerely,







Dear Dan,

I would like to express my sincere thanks for your great efforts at the Australia V Canada game and Australia V France on Saturday 1st and 25th June.

The entire day was a great success and together we were able to achieve an event that was truly memorable. The professionalism of all those involved combined with the passion of the large crowd created a truly electric atmosphere.

We greatly value the time and effort you have put in. The day would not have succeeded without the skill and enthusiasm of people such as you.

Again, please accept my personal thanks, and that of the entire Great Big Events team.


Dear Dan,

2002 Royal Easter Show - The Great Australian Muster

On behalf of the Entertainment Department, I would like to thank you for your participation in this year's Sydney Royal Easter Show.

The Entertainment Program this year was a great success with the Street Parade being bigger than ever. Street Theatre providing a unique blend of colour and movement, packed audiences in the Amphitheatre everyday, and the Muster Stage program once again exceeding all expectations.

Over 900,000 people visited the 2002 Royal Easter Show which is a more than credible effort considering the placement of school holidays.

Thank you for your support of the 2002 Royal Easter Show - The Great Australian Muster. Without your input the Show could have been the great success it was. We sincerely thank you for your commitment and professionalism in achieving this wonderful result.
