We’ve had Jo & 4te playing at our events now for around 24 months & they’ve become very much a valued part of each occasion. Our Star Awards & Long Service Awards are an opportunity to recognise our staff for their commitment & service to St. George & our customers. Jo & 4te have added a new dimension to these key events through the quality of entertainment they provide – they really make such a difference to our award presentations & cocktail parties. At our recent Long Service Awards 4te had everyone up dancing – from 18 to 70 – & added so much to the overall atmosphere for the evening. We always look forward to welcoming them to our events & they really are fabulous musicians.

Jo Elms, I wanted to thank you, Jon and Denys for helping make my wife’s 40th birthday party so fantastic. The music selection and quality was outstanding, and we loved the way you just played the room and brought the party to life. Our friends had a ball, and they all said that you were the best band they had heard in years. Right from my initial enquiry through to the big night, I found you to be highly professional, and you and the band exceeded my expectations on every count. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who wants to take their event to a new level or bring their next party to life.
