“The trio were a great fit for our event. Not only did Cy and his band grasp what were trying to achieve with our event quickly, they were easy to work with and completely self-managed during the event, helping to take that little bit of pressure off on the night. Needless to say, their sound was a hit and the band's charisma certainly added to the atmosphere of the evening, making it an enjoyable and memorable night.”

“I hired the Gossamer Trio to provide entertainment at a function I held for 500+ Radio Network clients at the Auckland Zoo. I found them professional, reliable and they provided the perfect ambiance for the diverse family friendly audience. I had many attendees approach me for their contact info as they were so impressed. They set a great tone for the evening and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.”
