Manly Daily write up

The band is one of a few professional bands that mostly work at a high profile corporate level in Sydney, however, during weekdays they provide entertainment for seniors and residential aged care homes

The band originally began playing at aged care homes only once a week for no fee, however the demand was so extensive for their style of entertainment, they eventually decided to charge a small fee and provide extra performances to meet the demand and cover their costs, they have regularly provided entertainment since the year 2000 to over 100 different nursing homes plus war veterans functions, elderly persons at nursing homes and legacy in Sydney

The duo band has provided in excess of 3,000 concerts to seniors and nursing homes since the year 2000

Since the band took on aged care work, their week days are mostly taken up for this purpose, however, they have a few weekday evenings available and weekends are reserved for corporate and other work
