Our concerts at beautiful art gallery, 72 Erskine (CBD) have continually sold out, and the fourth and latest was a 15 October performance of Film Music with Paul Cutlan (soprano saxophone and bass clarinet) and Gary Daley (piano and accordion) -thanks to all those who came and saw us. The previous performance on 27 August was perhaps the biggest success so far, with the trio playing almost 2 hours of originals, many of them based on my recent trip overseas, and some of them provoking raucous responses from the audience. So check the gig page for booking details. This concert is always an intimate experience, so don't miss out.
We will soon add a separate links page. In the meantime, here are some exceptional service providers we wholeheartedly recommend:
Australian Achievers Awards
JABBOQ JAZZ AGAIN WINS AUSTRALIAN ACHIEVER AWARD!
HAVING PREVIOUSLY WON THE AWARD IN 2006, JABBOQ JAZZ IS THE OVERALL WINNER OF THE 2008 AUSTRALIAN ACHIEVER AWARD FOR NSW'S MUSIC, ARTS, AND ENTERTAINMENT SERVICES AND SUPPLIES WITH A SCORE OF 99.15%.
In 2003, Jabb˘q began entering the Australian Achiever Awards for Excellence in Customer Relations. Each year since, we continued to participate to ensure our standards were maintained at a high level. Here are our results:
2003: Highly Recommended 97.99% Customer Satisfaction
2004: Highly Recommended 98.94% Customer Satisfaction
2005: Highly Recommended 98.41% Customer Satisfaction
2006: Overall Category Winner 99.15% Customer Satisfaction
2007: Highly Recommended 99.15% Customer Satisfaction
2008: Overall Category Winner 99.15% Customer Satisfaction
Including our 2006 and 2008 overall category wins, we now average 98.80% customer satisfaction over this six-year period.
Do Jabb˘q Jazz provide the sort of service that means customer satisfaction outweighs the cost?
This is one of the questions asked of our clients as they provide feedback to assessors at the Australian Achievers Awards. I feel that people are gradually becoming aware of the many and significant benefits in having live music at their functions, as opposed to canned music produced by either a CD player or a DJ. Because of this, they are often no longer comparing the two, other than with respect to expense. I am truly thrilled to be able to say that Jabb˘q Jazz has, according to our customers who participated in the Australian Achievers Awards assessment, provided a 97% value for money service over the last five years. That's a lot of gigs with lots of very happy people! Many thanks also to all the fantastic musicians, whose professional and passionate contributions have provided such comprehensive satisfaction to our clients.
