"A trio from the Trumpet Jazz Band was there to help me celebrate my 50th Birthday and in many ways “stole the show”. They were early to set up and late there to finish up. They played wonderful music all night and were extremely friendly and approachable. Having Anthony and the other chaps there made everyone’s night as many guests commented on how fabulous they were. Thank you again for adding that extra sparkle to my birthday. I can only recommend them to others looking for a wonderful Jazz band." - Simone Zvara

"Stop looking and start booking! If you are searching for the perfect jazz band for your event then book Trumpet. We recently hired them for a Great Gatsby themed party and they were amazing, totally professional and incredibly talented, perfect background music to start with and then there wasn’t one person that wasn’t up on the dance floor by the end of the night and we have a mix of friends from all walks of life and ages yet they all loved this band. I received so many comments on how fantastic they were and our friends are still raving about them! I searched so many websites to find the perfect band and I found Trumpet! I highly recommend them for any event so stop looking and just book them, your guests will love them!" - Jodie and Grant

"Trumpet were the perfect choice for our wedding. It was so hard to find a band that could encapsulate the 50’s era with class, but trumpet did it beautifully. From the elegant jazz played at the start of the night, to the swing and rock and roll towards the end, they had everyone in the right mood. They went above and beyond our expectations, learning Italian songs for us, even squeezing in a tarantella! And their rendition of “Figlia Mia” for the father-daughter dance had everyone in tears. We cannot recommend them enough. Thanks guys!" - Luca and Bianca Bertolacci

"Trumpet were the perfect choice for our winery wedding - the slower jazz played while guests were eating was followed by the song the band had learned for us to do our wedding dance to, and finally some more lively songs for the end of the evening, where the highlight was the fathers of the bride and groom swinging each other around to Trumpet's tunes! Our guests can't stop raving about how good the band was, and how they really made the evening into such a fun night for everyone. We can't thank Trumpet enough for their professionalism, brilliant music and of course, their willingness to do three encore songs when some our more jolly guests just wouldn't let them leave at the end of the night!" - Kristen and Alex Cann

"The Trumpet Jazz Band provided just the music, elegance and style we were looking for to accompany our corporate dinner dance for our Melbourne air traffic control and supporting staff. All guests complemented the highly skilled musicians and fabulous vocals. We would recommend the Trumpet Jazz Band to anyone thinking of hosting a similar event." - Airservices Social Club Melbourne

"The Nines would like to thank the Trumpet Jazzband for being so reliable and easy to work with. Our clients and their guests had a sensational time dancing all night to your wonderful tunes! Your music fitted with The Nines theme to perfection and created a memorable night for all. We look forward to working with you again very soon. "
- Vanessa - The Nines, Event Stylists & Planners

"The Trumpet Jazz band were so great when we saw them at my cousins wedding that we decided to poach them for ours! We had our wedding in a tiny town called Jamieson and the band's blend of soul and jazz was perfect for our country wedding. Commincation was excellent throughout the planning phase and the whole band was friendly and professional. They played a wonderful mix of slower tunes for the drinks and canapes and cranked it up to make sure the dancefloor was buzzing til the end of the night. The two encores were a sign of how much our guests loved them! Some of our engaged friends took business cards and I hope to see them playing again soon!!"
- Anna Molan and James Tyrrell

"The easiest decision to make when we started planning our wedding was to hire Trumpet for our reception. We had seen them play many times at our local bar and new they would set the right mood. From the moment I made contact they were incredibly professional and easy to deal with - taking requests for first dance and entrance songs and confirming details. Everyone really enjoyed their music - with a crowd ranging in age from early 20s to 70s this can often be a challenge - but young and old were up on the dance floor enjoying themselves. I received numerous enquiries from people asking where they could see them play. So once again - Thank you Trumpet for helping to make our wedding a memorable event. "
- Cameron Seaman & Lauren Burke

"Here's to the Trumpet Jazz Band for ensuring our wedding reception was a truly classy affair. After seeing them do their stuff on an evening set at the Rice Queen Bar on Smith St, it was truly a no-brainer to get them on board for one of the most important days of our lives. They were professional, punctual, and looked fantastic. Their song repertoire was great, and their music provided a sophisticated yet laid back air that suited the evening perfectly. A special thanks to Anthony who most graciously lent his talents to my wedding song for a great highlight of the reception at no extra charge! Would recommend at the drop of a hat. Thanks again guys!" - Ken & Tina Seto

"Thank you so much for playing at our wedding on Saturday. Trumpet was fantastic! There were non stop compliments from the guests. Trumpet connected to everyone in the room and played to everyones' liking. We all had a great evening." - Tara Egan & Peter Kostokanellis

"Just wanted to let you know we had some great feedback about you guys after your last show at Rice Queen - thought I'd pass it on so you know you're definitely pleasing the crowds (and the staff) :-)" - Tess, The Rice Queen, Fitzroy

"Trumpet, from the moment we first heard you at the City Tiler we knew you were perfect for the mood we wanted to create at our garden wedding reception. You exceeded our expectations and created such a great vibe, perfectly suited to the garden setting. We have had so much positive feedback from our guests, it was great to see everyone enjoying themselves and dancing away. Thanks for making the trip to Lorne for us, for your professionalism and for being so lovely to deal with, it was a real pleasure. We've already recommended you to our friends and will continue to do so. Thanks again." - Hugh and Katherine Charlton

"Thanks again for being so damn awesome and helping to make our wedding reception totally kick-a**. You guys were an absolute hit with everyone, and Jarrod and I thought you were simply divine. Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!" - Lucy Piper & Jarrod Bosanko

"Trumpet provided the perfect music as the background to our outdoor wedding at Point Nepean on the Mornington Peninsula. Despite challenging weather, they delivered a great mix of jazz, blues and soul tunes which certainly warmed up our guests and were well appreciated by all. A highlight of the day was the band playing "At Last" as Philippa walked down the aisle – very emotional. We'd highly recommend them as a cracking wedding band." - Arjang & Philippa Taylor
