Felicity, Blackmores, Corporate @ Hilton Hotel Sydney - April 2019

Hi Gus & Alley,

I hope you are both well.

Apologies I haven’t come back to you sooner but I just wanted to say thank you to the band for doing great job at our symposium, they had everyone up on the dance floor (and we have a tough crowd).

We have another gig coming up, would The Usual Suspects be available on Friday 14 July, its our sales conference. We are expecting about 300ppl to attend, the event will be at Sheraton on the park. 

If you could let me know that would be great!



Sophie and William, Wedding @ Private Residence (Cowra) - March 2019

Alley and Gus,

Where do I start…..

We cannot thank you enough!!! TUS went above and beyond as did the two of you to assist with our wedding. It was BEYOND our expectations. Without doubt, the best day of our lives! Please pass on our thanks to the entire band. They were incredible. People have NOT stopped talking about it #weddingoftheyear and it was an honour to have them play at our event. We will be singing your praises from the rooftops to one and all.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your assistance. Please note, we noticed each and every song, as did our parents and appreciate all the hard work that went into this. It totally made the day for us. Music as you know, is so so important to the success of any function.

Can’t wait to share photos in a few weeks.

There are no words – thank you for EVERYTHING!

Kind Regards,

Sophie and William

Hi Alley,

Thank you so much! The band were phenomenal, everyone couldn't stop talking about them, I'll definitely refer them to others.

Thanks again, and thank the band for us :)

Paul, Sky Sports, Corporate @ Luna Park Sydney - February 2019

Hi guys,

Band absolutely nailed it yesterday. Year on year, they just get better and better. 

Look forward to booking them for next year.



Kate, Actelion Pharmaceuticals, Corporate @ Pier One - February 2019

Hi Alley,

Everything was great! People were dancing and really enjoying the music, they're the best we've ever had.

Would love to have them for another function, I'll be in touch re our Christmas Party later this year.

Best regards,



Chris and Liz, Wedding @ Centennial Park Homestead - February 2019

To all the members of The Usual Suspects,

Our wedding reception was magical and it was all thanks to you. It is our great regret that we were so swept up in the excitement of our day that we didn't get to introduce ourselves to you all personally, and thank you for contributing to the magic of the day. Please know how grateful we were to you for everything you did. So many people have complimented us on the band and asked who you guys were - and the full dance floor til the end of the night is proof of what a wonderful time we had. Thank you for playing our special request for our first dance - we must have watched it back a thousand times and the music was just perfect. We thank you all for everything and we hope that you go from strength to strength and continue to make everyone else's weddings and parties as memorable as ours. Never underestimate the power of your talents in making such a huge difference in people's lives.

Chris and Liz


Angela, Reckon, Corporate @ Observatory Marquee - December 2018

Hi Alley!

We had a great time on Friday and as per usual the band were AMAZING!

We look forward to having you guys on board again next year!



Katrina and Javier, Wedding @ Reef - December 2018

Hi Alley,

Just a quick email to let you know that even though our wedding was over 6 months ago, guests are STILL RAVING about The Usual Suspects. They read the room perfectly and kept us dancing all night long. Our list of priorities for our big day was Music, Drinks and Food (in that order!). The Usual Suspects more than delivered. The whole team was amazing and so supportive from start to finish, and a huge thanks to you for your assistance and expertise through every step of the journey.

Katrina and Javier


Lisa, Wisetech, Corporate @ Maritime Museum - December 2018

Hi Alley,

The Usual Suspects were INCREDIBLE!!  They were so accommodating and very flexible with our staff members.  Thank you so much for helping the party be such a success, look forward to working with you again soon.



Georgia and Neil, Wedding @ Catalina - November 2018

Dear Alley,

Thank you for your email. We had a truly wonderful day and the band were flawless. I'll recommend TUS to everyone getting married! Thank you also for being easy to deal with and so promptly replying to our emails, we were really impressed with the entire experience.

All the best,

Georgia and Neil 


Angela, CommBank, Corporate @ MONA (Hobart) - November 2018

Hi Gus,

I know this is a bit late however I’ve been in and out of the office on events. Just wanted to let you know The Usual Suspects were fabulous, really professional, entertaining and had been clearly briefed with everything I had passed onto you and Alley. I would definitely book them again.  

Appreciate your help and patience with our last minute requests and details.

Thanks again,



Becky and Blake, Wedding @ Bendooley Estate - November 2018


They were absolutely incredible! We had the most amazing time and everyone was saying how wonderful they were. I don't think I left the dance floor all night! Fly me to the moon was perfect... it was all just wonderful! Thank you so so much for all your help. I'm not sure about me being organised.... but thank you!

We'll have to have another party you guys can play at again soon!

All the best,

Becky and Blake


Brian and Dave, Wedding @ Prince Henry Centre - November 2018

Hi Alley

I just wanted to send a message to pass on our thanks to the band for Saturday night.  They were really awesome – everyone we’ve spoken to loved them, and they really helped to make our day special, especially learning those couple of songs that we requested.  Unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to chat to all the band, but those that we did were very friendly and relaxed, which really fitted in with our day.

Thanks for your amazing help and being a huge part of our day!

Kind regards,



Tahlia and Sol, Wedding @ Cellblock Theatre - October 2018

Gus and Alley,

My wonderful beautiful fantastic superstars, who represent all the other fantastic superstars of the TUS family,

What. A. Night.

Gus, no words could express how grateful we are for the ridiculous lengths you went to to be there for our special day, and for everything you did when you got there to make sure it was as awesome as possible. And it was so, so awesome. 

We're going away for our minimoon tomorrow (or as Sol calls it, our wedaway!) and get back mid next week, so once we're back, we definitely owe you a beer (and 200 bucks) and would love to hang out!

Please please send our love and massive thanks to Jess, Seb and the whole team for their awesome work. The feedback from family, friends, so many guests was absolutely glowing about TUS :) Can't wait to find more newly engaged couples (or even newly dating couples who might one day get married, or at least have giant parties) and convince them to have the awesomest band ever!!!

That's all the love I'll lay on you now. Will chat when we get back!

Much love and thanks,

Tahlia and Sol


Scott and Nicole, Wedding @ Terrara House - October 2018

Hi Alley,

Thank you so much for your lovely email. Scott and I had the most wonderful day.

TUS were a huge hit with our family and friends. The selection of music they played along with the overall vibe of the band made for a fantastic night!

We had so many comments on how great the guys were - one friend even asked for your contacts for his wedding.

We wish the band all the very best.


Scott and Nic


Alison and Michael, Wedding @ Bronte Surf Club - October 2018

Hi Gus and Alley,

I can't thank you enough for all your help. TUS were absolutely amazing, everybody had so much fun. People were literally dancing from the moment the band started until the end. 

Thanks again!



Janice and Elliott, Wedding @ Doltone House, Jones Bay Wharf - September 2018

Hi Alley,

Thank you so much for the email. We cannot thank you guys enough for being the best band EVER!!!! We had the best time, we didn't leave the dance floor for a second. Everything was seamless and we had so much fun. We have also been getting the biggest compliments about the band. Everyone loved them and said how excellent they are- they haven't stopped raving and some people (ie my mother) are a tough crowd to impress ;-). I really think that a function is only as good as the band playing and they were just amazing. 

You too have been only too wonderful to deal with and made it so easy and perfect for us. I can't thank youenough for being so patient with me and for helping us so much. 

I also wanted to thank you guys for the gorgeous plant! :) it was so sweet and such a nice surprise to see when we got home! 

Please pass on my gratitude and awe to the band as well and thanks to Gus as well. So many thank yous but we couldn't be happier. 

Hopefully we will have many more functions to dance to with you guys. I know the next one is already in October  at another friend's wedding and I can't wait :) 

Thanks so much again,

Janice and Elliot
