Solo to Symphony is sad to say that Director, Jody Harrison, feels it is time to have a less competitive and anxiety free life! She is very happy that Perth offers musical talent through other professional companies.
Jody is very proud to have directed such a talent filled WEST Australian company and thanks all the musicians who supported her. The talent that WA produces is a constant source of pride for her and she will enjoy watching WA musicians take on the world for the rest of her life!
Jody also thanks her clients who, obviously, kept this West Australian company employed!
She also thanks the other entertainment companies in Perth who, like Jody, know what integrity is and who cherish this small but amazing city we live in.
So now - go all of you and let the world know how amazing WA musicians are!
The music of this quintet ranges from sophisticated cocktail music to downright funky grooves, from heart rendering ballads to light Latin moods, from the sublime to the ridiculous, but always with a great sense of humour and taste.
My father has specifically asked me to pass on his praise and appreciation for Libby and the band. He and all his friends loved the music very much and were raving about it last night. They loved Libby's voice and style. Dad particularly loved the trumpet and said that it was quiet to begin with and really came out at the end showing great prowess. I really appreciated how the band's level was very complimentary to the situation of a party in a house. They were not over powering at all. They were just perfect and of course very lovely and accommodating to work with. Thanks.

It was fantastic! Libby and her team were brilliant - of course the music was outstanding but equally with their customer service and attention to the event. I had people coming up to me the whole night asking who the band are and saying how terrific they were. The sound guy was great too - Not one thing went wrong which was amazing!

Just a quick note to say thankyou. Libby and the band were awesome on Friday evening at our Volunteers event. We have had a lot of positive feedback and I will be sure to book Libby again in the future.

I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the awesome performance and entertainment at the PSDS's Hullabaloo Ball last week! Everyone I heard from gave great feedback on the band and the atmosphere on the night (and as chairperson, swing dancers aren't afraid to let me know if they aren't happy about something).
Libby, the international teachers from the US said you were the best female vocalist that they have heard in a long time. And that is saying something since they average at least two lindy festivals a month so they hear A LOT of jazz bands! They were very impressed to have a band where the vocalist was the feature, not just an add-on.
