His main aim when performing?… To ensure his audiences leave feeling totally satisfied that they have been entertained!
His eagerness to soak up all styles of music has resulted in a large, immensely varied repertoire, ranging from the 1950’s right through to chart toppers of this week. It has molded his vocal styles so as to include anything from the likes of Dean Martin through to Bon Jovi.

Jason was awesome. He did a great job and I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again or recommend him to anyone else.
Thanks very much.
Thanks for dropping me a line.
Jason was awesome as usual. We had a bit of a younger crowd this time around and Jason was able to change up his playlist to accommodate. Absolute pro as always.

Thank you for your email.
Jason Smith was great and was the perfect act for the evening, and I will email him to thank him later this week.
Many thanks for all your assistance, and I look forward to the next time we need to hire an act.
Rhythm and Wines Evening
Thanks for your email
Jason Smith was great and sang most of the songs we liked and he has a great voice and was very easy to work with
I will use him again in my next function for sure
Thanks for your email, I have been meaning to get in touch to let you know how happy we were with Jason :)
The music can make or break an event, and I have to say that Jason made our engagement party extra special. We have had endless comments from our guests at how talented he is, and how he played just the right kind of music for our crowd.
The whole process was also so easy from beginning to end - thank you so much. If you can also please pass on our thanks to Jason - we will be recommending him to everyone!
Both Jason and Andrew we professional, timely and a pleasure to work alongside.
They both took the lead after just one of the six ceremonies which was brilliant, as they came in and did their performances with little and no overseeing needed which is immensely helpful when staff have to be in several different places at once.
Thank you for touching base and we would happily book both these artists again if the brief required similar services.

Jason did a fantastic performance at our wedding. We can't thank you and Jason for making everything so easy for us and for coming down to perform on the night. We will definitely be consulting with you should we have another event planned in New Zealand.
Should you wish to, please don't hesitate to place these comments on your web page.
Many thanks & kind regards,
Leah Marshall & Chris Gell
