Thank you for introducing us to ACB – they were a HIT for our staff ball! They offered a great genre of music and mix of vocals. It was also great that they have worked in a number of Auckland’s key venues as this always makes my job easier dealing with professionals. I would have no hesitation recommending ACB to other companies. Russell McVeagh - 1 November 2012

Georgia and Mark have created a new dimension in our restaurant. Their performances are consistently warm, energetic and rich. Their professional approach and ability to read different audiences must also be mentioned. This duo is a serious draw card for customers. Prohibition Restaurant - 1 October 2011
