Tammy's Wedding in pokolbin, Dec 2020

Rod was ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! He performed for our small wedding reception at the Mercure HVG. He played a great range of songs, took requests, performed an encore as demanded by our guests and even learnt some songs on the spot (which were performed like he had played them for years). We have heard nothing but compliments from our guests on his voice and talents since our wedding night... and they still keep coming in a couple of days later! Thank you so much for making our special day one to remember! We will be forever grateful! Love Tam & Jake x

Tiara 's House Party in Highfields , May 2020

Rod was AMAZING! He somehow made the backyard party with 5 of our friends, feel like a music festival. We explained to Rod our idea of replicating the famous Lovedale long lunch as it was cancelled this year, and he did exactly that. He mixed up the songs, and was happy to take requests. I would ask him to play for any event I hold in Newcastle from now on. HIGHLY recommended.
