“We booked Mister Speaker for our wedding this year as they were recommended by a friend, man did they deliver!!!! Jason was so easy to deal with and the band were amazing. They went above and beyond to make our special day / night perfect. Everyone was raving for days about how awesome they were. If you want a really cool, funky vibe with a touch of sass book Mr Speaker”


“I saw Mister Speaker playing at the Lula Inn earlier last year and was really impressed by the performance, noting that I would try to use them next time I organised a corporate event. Later in the year, during the planning for my company’s 2017 end of year event for c. 200 attendees, I contacted the band via their Facebook page to check availability. The band’s manager, Jason Herbert, got back to me immediately and was incredibly helpful and supportive with the planning. Once our event plans became clearer, Jason assisted with an evaluation of the venue, sound equipment, lighting and staging – as well as working with me on timing and music preferences. The week of the event, the band’s lead vocalist was hit by an unforeseeable bereavement and was not available, but Jason worked around the clock to find alternative solutions that would deliver the best experience for the night. Eventually forming a super group between Mister Speaker’s 6 person band and two fantastic vocalists from the Hipstamatics. The end result was better than anything that we could have expected and Mister Speaker was the centerpiece of our event, really delivering a great experience. Besides sounding great – the band, sound engineer and Jason were very professional and genuinely great people to work with. They will be my “go to” band for future event requirements.”
