  • Our wedding was wonderful but we honestly cant Thankyou enough! Your music, voice, professionalism were all amazing and we had so many comments about how good you were. You really helped make our wedding something to remember. We thank you so much.

    Gemma Willison (Wedding Client, October 2018)
  • From the moment I first contacted Josh until the performance on the night, you were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Booking you was easy and it was great to be able to have you provide the PA at such a competitive rate. Your willingness to perform on the back of the truck (sight unseen) and also dress in theme was fantastic. It made dealing with you very easy! As for your performance, I thought you were a perfect fit for the event and the crowd and we received many favourable comments from guests. The client was extremely happy with your performance. We would both certainly contact you again for our events in Perth. Thank you again for a great performance!

    Victor Goldsztein, V.G. Event Managment (Melb, VIC)
  • Josh performed at our staff and client function in December. Not only was their slick performance and song selection both spot on, they were incredibly professional to deal with. I would be more than happy to recommend them for other events

    Angelique McAvoy, ACSWA Events Coordinator (Perth, WA)
  • Josh and the guys were absolutely fantastic. Not only do they rock as performers, but they were so down to earth, so easy going and mingled with everyone. They were a huge hit and I’m so grateful to have had them. My total gratitude for making the whole experience an absolute pleasure. The bands professionalism and the high standard of your performers is something you should all be proud of. I will highly recommend to anyone who asks!

    Shane Tyler; General Manager of Exchange Hotel (Kalgoorlie WA)
  • Thanks so much to Jetpack for performing at my wedding. Their set list was a perfect blend of classics for the oldies and contemporary songs for my friends. The band was very professional and incredibly entertaining. I couldn’t recommend them enough

    Joshua & Rebecca Terlick (Perth, WA)

    Liina TΓ€ (Facebook Review)
  • Just wanted to say thank you so much for last night! You were fantastic and just seemed to play the right songs for this group! Thanks again Josh

    Melissa Casey, Event Director. Directions Conference & Incentive Management. November 2018
  • Thanks so much for everything on Saturday. The songs at the ceremony were awesome, was so happy, completely added to the atmosphere. All our guests had such a great time at the reception also. You did very well to handle all our guests requesting a million songs! You played everything we asked for so that was perfect and the dance floor was so much fun.

    Kelly & Jason Canigla (Wedding client, January 2019)
  • What a night! Katie and I just wanted to say thank you for your amazing performances yesterday. The ceremony was excellent. Your presentation and professionalism was great. The instrumental sweet disposition is exactly what we wanted – so thank you for making that moment when Katie arrived so special. At the reception, your music and song selection was great. We appreciate you working out our complicated run sheet and getting all of the songs on time and in order. The George Ezra Hold my Girl was also perfect and in fact all of the songs you sung were just wonderful. You had the crowd rocking with the live sets and DJ! We had many, many people provide us with positive feedback today about your work so we will happily refer them on to you. You helped make the night perfect and no stress for Katie and I – so again, thank you and we hope you enjoyed the evening and sharing these moments with us.

    Liam and Katie. Wedding Clients November 2020
  • We had an incident with the fire alarm going off (just a routine check) but because of the bushfires, we were unable to have anyone come out to turn it off for nearly 2 hours. During this time Josh still played and kept everyone happy and calm by singing. He took requests during the night and every one of our attendees that I spoke with raved about how wonderful he was. Can't thank him enough! Will definitely be keeping his name on our books.
