Malcolm was a perfect act for my son's wedding. He was set up in plenty of time for the wedding ceremony on a hill in a vineyard on Waiheke. Malcolm's dress was impeccable and he had learnt the special wedding song my son and his wife had requested. Prior to the formal reception Malcolm entertained guests and also for the dancing segment, his voice and music ability for cover songs were great. Thanks so much.
I just thought I'd send you an email to let you know Mal McCallum did a fantastic job at our daughters wedding on Saturday. He arrived early, set up quickly and played non-stop on both piano and guitar for the whole 2 hours.His repertoire appealed to everyone and he really did help create a great atmosphere. For us he was the perfoect choice for the day.
Thanks for organising this for us.
Malcolm did a great job and was very well received. Will have no hesitation in recommending him for future events here at Matakauri.
Yes thanks, all went well for our party. Good atmosphere, so thanks again.
Our 60th Birthday Party was very much enjoyed by all, especially the guest of honour!
A big thank you to Malcolm who coped really well with a disorganised venue to begin with and then a power cut in the middle of his performance.
However Malcolm was a true professional and continued to entertain us on his guitar and still managed to perform the special song we had requested.
Malcolm was excellent and our guests really enjoyed his music.
Thank you so much to Malcolm and also to you, for your hand in making the afternoon a success!
I would not hesitate to have Malcolm again to entertain us!
