James's Wedding in Tweed Heads, May 2019

We contacted Nick Waters on the Crowdpleaser website to book him in to play at our wedding in Tweed Heads. We were a little unsure of booking on this site because we didn't know anyone who had used this site before. We booked and payed the deposit, Nick was available for chats on the phone but best of all, he was able to meet up with us face to face on two occasions to discuss our planning of the event, he was open to hear our suggestions for our big day and he was very accomodating in giving us his tips for our big day. At the last minute we needed to organise a PA system for the ceremony inside the chapel, we contacted Nick and for no extra charge on the day he organised and set up the speakers and microphone for the celebrant, the ceremony went off with out a hitch. From the start of the reception to the finish Nick and his female band took control and really pleased our crowd, they played low volume easy listening music while the meals were being served then as the night progressed they upped the volume and really cut loose, we had guests aged from 10 to 80 they played an awesome range of music that everyone up and dancing. We couldn't have asked for a better guy, he was honest, upfront and just a really easy person to deal with. If you are looking for a professional showman and great band for you event Nick is your man . Thanks Nick Kind Regards James and Cassandra

Hi Nick!
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our Wedding Reception so great on Saturday night!! You and your partner really made it something special. Everyone has been talking about the great music and dance floor (one person even said they didn’t realise there was a band at first because you sound so much like the real deal of songs!).
We couldn’t have asked for a more professional, talented team.
Thank you.

Nick Waters and Captain Wow Band. The name is so apt.
As a couple frantic about our wedding day going to plan, the least of our worries was the entertainment. Nick did what he said he would by providing background music, microphones and amplification for the speeches and the MC and then the live music which was so brassy that all our guests raved about the music all night. Nick and Captain Wow got the party rocking. Many Thanks. We would confidently recommend Captain Wow for any function where you were looking for an impact factor. Sarah and Chris.

Good luck with your gigs and next time your over in the west get in touch.

Dear Nick
Our Dealer Conference held last week at the Sheraton Mirage was greeted with a great deal of enthusiasm by our Agents and I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your band and it’s contribution to the entertainment throughout our Gala Dinner and Awards Night.
Your showmanship and professionalism was such an asset and you worked exceptionally hard to make it the success it was, Captain Wow had your audience entertained at all times.
It is fair to say without your act our event would not have been nearly as successful as it was. We look forward to using your services again in the future.

With myself playing and singing professionally all over Queensland and Gold Coast for the most part of 25 years, I had seen Captain Wow play many times.
I was always impressed with the music that they provided to the various forms of clientele.
Now focus has been to grow my own business Silkwood Homes, and although not playing any more I still appreciate great music and a very high level of performance.
Captain Wow have played for my company functions many times and have always been able to play the right music for each generation or age group and have fantastic interaction to ensure that everyone has a great night.
As a musician myself I really appreciate how important it is to make the night and the music perfect for each function and Captain Wow always pleases the crowd of every venue or function.
If anyone is looking for entertainment at their next private party, work function, or a Corporate event, then I could not recommend anyone more competent, amiable and professional than Nick and the Captain Wow team.
I guarantee a fantastic night of music.
I am happy to personally take any calls if anyone needs further confirmation as to what Captain Wow has to offer.
Kind Regards
Silkwood Homes
