Jared and I would like to send out a huge thank you for all of the members of Jellyfish for an amazing night of entertainment and fun at our wedding. The band were a professional unit that didn't miss a beat. They knew exactly how to keep our guests entertained, with barely a seat being occupied throughout the whole night. All our friends and family are still to this day commenting on how incredible the band was.
Thank you so much for being apart of our wedding day and making our evening rock. We could not recommend you enough!
Thank you so much
Michelle and Jared Miller
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jellyfish for an outstanding performance at our New Years Eve Celebrations at The Entrance. The performance was of a very high standard with popular songs that engaged the crowd and induced participation from the young to the young at heart. Even the threat of ominous weather did not deter the crowds of families, holiday makers and locals from gathering in their thousands to enjoy the New Years Eve Celebrations at The Entrance with our biggest crowd ever of an estimated 20,000+ visitors in our seaside town. We trust you valued your involvement in the New Years Celebrations at The Entrance and look forward to working with you again in the future.
