  • Monty was AMAZING! Everyone absolutely loved him.

    Alex & Shaun (Wedding) - December 2018
  • Jim and I would like to thank you for the amazing music and entertainment you made at our wedding last Saturday 20th January. We have had so many good reports from our guests, we just wish we could’ve been around to listen to you more. I am looking forward to getting the video so I can listen to you! Many thanks again – We will definitely use you in the future.

    Erin & Jim (Wedding) – January 2018
  • I just wanted to say thanks to Monty and band for performing at our wedding in the Barossa Valley. The guys were unreal and just made our night so special for us. We couldn’t have asked for a cooler band to come and play at our wedding, and we are still talking about how great of a time we had. I am absolutely stoked to have had Monty Cotton at our wedding; young or old, everyone loved it, they were great. The guys were so professional and sounded unreal. The band were all really nice and had everyone up and dancing for hours. We’ll be hoping to see Monty perform at events in the future!

    Terri and Tom (Wedding) - October 2017
  • Just wanted to say a huge thankyou for doing an incredible job at our wedding. We’ve had so many people say how great the entertainment was! We really appreciate all the behind the scenes work you put in as well.

    Sammy (Wedding) - June 2017
  • Monty is an amazing person who went out of his way for us and we couldn’t appreciate it more. You should suggest him to everyone!

    Daina (Wedding) – April 2017
  • I just want to say thank you so much. Monty Cotton was an amazing, talented singer - he performed at my 50th on Monday 25th January. Everyone enjoyed his music, he has a lovely voice and got us all up dancing. GREAT NIGHT. Thank you again.

    Leanne (Private Function) – January 2016
  • Monty was absolutely fantastic! Highly recommended. We actually tried to keep him for a few extra hours but unfortunately for us he had another act.

    Rachael (Engagement Party) – November 2015
  • Our wedding was incredible, just perfect in every way. Tiffany, I can speak on behalf of my Husband and myself when I say that Monty was magnificent. Monty took the time to learn our “walking down the aisle” song Tenerife Sea by Ed Sheeran. His arrangement of this song was simply beautiful and his style complemented our day in every way. Our guests commented that during our pre reception drinks. Monty was interactive and fun, playing a range of songs which everyone was happy to dance to. Our first dance song was performed at the end of the pre reception drinks, another song we requested Monty learn being Latch by Sam Smith. Again Monty’s version of the song was amazing and heartfelt. Agreeably a hard song to sing considering the vocal range required! Thank you again for your assistance and our warmest regards and gratitude again to Monty. We will definitely book Monty again for future events.
