Angus 's Celebration in Royal Botanic gardens Sydney , Sep 2023

I had the most incredible experience recently when I booked Karl to provide background music at the picnic I organized in the stunning Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney. It was the perfect setting for me to propose to my partner, and Karl's music choice and voice made the day truly magical. After he played our special song, I got down on one knee and proposed, and it couldn't have been more perfect. To top it all off, Karl then performed a flawless rendition of 'Perfect'. We were so impressed and touched by his talent that we decided to fly him down to Melbourne next year to play background music at our wedding. Karl was absolutely wonderful, and we are immensely grateful to him for making our special moment absolutely perfect. Thank you, Karl!

Lyndi 's Wedding in Katoomba , Dec 2022

When I first reached out to Karl on crowd pleaser, he responded super quickly and continued to answer all my questions instantly. I was looking for an acoustic musician to sing at my engagement party that turned into a surprise wedding. From the get go Karl understood the assignment. He was all over the secret! Karl has an incredible selection of genres. He engaged the crowd and had people up singing and dancing. I asked Karl for a special request. To learn a song and sing with me as I surprised my husband with singing a song. He was so amazing. He met me outside to go over the song in full secret and went with the flow of the evening as we did a lot of improvising. Karl’s singing ability is amazing and his performance with the guitar was perfect. Karl’s sound system and PA are battery operated so when he arrived, he required nothing from us. He set up and began singing as soon as he arrived. We received many compliments about Karl’s performance and had many guests ask for his details. I will 100% use Karl again for any event I have. His calm, no fuss nature really helped a nervous bride. He is polite, friendly and engaging and really knew what he was doing and was really professional. Thank you Karl for being a part of our special day and for making so many special accommodations for me. We can’t thank you enough!!! Highly recommend Karl. J
