You were all marvellous, great singing, fun and beautifully put together.

It was a wonderful selection of music! Brilliant!”

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
A very big THANK YOU to the both of you for your valuable assistance and patience for the past few months! The performance went well and the guests and clients were blown away! It was a lovely New Year’s Eve countdown. The show went off really well. I will send over some pictures to you when they are in.
Kate was a great help in facilitating the show production and took care of the group without having much worries on our part. That was really helpful!
Wayne, Danielle and the band had a good chemistry, the music charts were really helpful and it's been such a wonderful experience working with Wayne and his team and the both of you.

We were very pleased with the variety of options provided and the prompt execution of requests and queries. MTA managed the decoration of the entire function room as well as the hiring of entertainment.
Throughout the process their staff were thoroughly professional, and a pleasure to work with. ”
“The Real Mexico were great on the Canon gig – they really set the night off, and had quite a few of the group up and dancing – or at least shaking maraccas! – and got everyone into the Mexican groove that we wanted to create. They looked superb and the music was excellent – pitched just right, they really worked the audience well and I couldn't be happier.
Please thank them from me, and from Canon, for a great performance. And of course, thanks for all your help in getting it all organised – I'll definitely be using MTA again for entertainment bookings, you were fantastically easy to deal with, and delivered exactly what we needed. ”

“We would like to thank you for your recent participation/performance at our Bella Italia Festival. The enthusiasm and flexibility with which all entertainers conducted themselves on the day were indeed, much appreciated. Bella Italia was a pilot event for Crowns Promenade and the energy you injected into the Festival rein forced how vital live entertainment is at an event of this calibre.”
“… Their warmth, range of repertoire and individual musical talents have combined on each occasion to 'bring the house down'.

Their choice of music is always exactly right for the occasion.”

“Not only was it a spectacular show of the highest standard, it also prepared the team for what was to come. Our decision to utilise a singing workshop as a team building exercise was a significant step for a relatively conservative team. The most obvious element was the total commitment and involvement of the entire team and their interaction with each of the performers. It is still remarkable to me the long lasting impact that a two hour session can have on each and every one of us. Many of us were challenged by the process and all of us were surprised at the way in which we could come together and generate a more acceptable sound with some basic instruction. The Pot-Pourri team made this happen in a fun and relaxing environment”
“The night was an absolutely incredible success that we can only attribute to the outstanding performance of Pot-Pourri and Olympic gold medallist Kerrie Pottharst. From Phantom to Turandot to Westside Story…Pot-Pourri had it all, blissfully taking us and our most valued customers through an enthralling emotional journey that will be remembered for a very long time. Tradelink Projects is now viewed as a provider of high quality, thoroughly professional entertainment providing a welcome relief from the standards so often put forward in our industry.”
“These guys are sensational and add a great Australian high cultural experience 'with a twist' to whatever corporate function you are planning. You will not be disappointed!”

The Lord Mayor’s Charitable Committee, Adelaide, S.A.
“Accountants and lawyers dining at the Australia Club are notoriously conservative. Suffice to say you gave them a wonderful evening’s classical entertainment with praise and calls for encore. Your individual talents are obvious but your great gift if the trouble you take to relate and engage with a mixed audience and so professional and pleasurable to work with. In insolvency circles, Don’t Cry for Me Argentina and The Impossible Dream will never be quite the same!”
