Swing City really adapted to the mood of the night. From the music played while guests walked in, through to the featured artists and then dance music at the end of the evening……….it was an enormous success.

Swing City’s performance was fantastic! It created such a wonderful atmosphere even in the pouring rain. The audience obviously felt that the music was worth standing in the rain for.
Susanah Conway – CEO Brisbane River Festival
The professionalism of Swing City was most appreciated and their dedication, enthusiasm and exuberance for the performance was the reason why the night was so successful. My sincere thanks for suggesting and organizing Daryl Somers who was a great benefit to this occasion.
Ken Laing – CEO Media Music
“James Morrison may be the big noise in jazz but it’s his drumming brother who has played the Opera House – and I mean he played the Opera House. He played the stage, the stairs, the doors and even the noggin of an audience member! During his drum solo, John hopped out from behind the drums and proceeded to rattle his sticks on everything in sight, almost stealing the show from his illustrious brother”
