Client Comments for Soul Mystique
Soul Mystique travels from Queensland Australia
- Soul Mystique are a World Class Act. They could draw a crowd anywhere and that's what this show [Australia's Got Talent] is about.
- They live on the stage! We love them!
- They are the Real Deal... They Make time Stop!
- I am writing to highly recommend Soul Mystique as an act for any event, any night, and any occasion. They will steal the night. Soul Mystique performed on Channel 9's nationally televised NRA Australian Fashion Design Awards on December 9, 2006 and was the one act everyone talked about. Gavin & Lydia were extremely professional, understanding of our production requirements, flexible and friendly to all involved. If you're looking for something different, trying to make an impact, or just want your night or event to be something special then these guys are perfect for you. I cannot recommend them enough – they are fantastic!
- The highlight of the night was Soul Mystique who blew delegates away with their amazing performance of dance & magic. Our delegates were amazed and left wanting more
Event Planners Australia
- I had to admit that when they began their performance, I had no idea what to expect. The first quick change was a novelty but the wonderment mounted as the changes progressed and I began to be intrigued how they were stashing the outfits away. I was not able to detect the illusions even from the second row. There are very few things you remember in your lifetime… What I saw last night was one thing I will never ever forget in my life.
Magic Makers Magazine
- They were brilliant. They were the talk of the office for days!
Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre
- On behalf of the Perioperative Nurses Association of Queensland and Taylored Images we would like express our thanks to Soul Mystique for their performance at our recent conference dinner masquerade ball. Soul Mystique's performance was absolutely spectacular. The speed and precision of costume changes leaving everyone amazed. Soul Mystique left a lasting impression on all the delegates and helped to make our masquerade ball a huge success.
- Our Gala audience is used to the night starting with something unusual and exciting but let's just say that this year they were awestruck! 550 pairs of eyes sat glued to Soul Mystiques performance and 550 brains spun with the possiblity... how on earth did they do it all so fast? Their dynamic dancing coupled with an ability to change costumes so fast that every man in the room wished his wife could learn the art, started off our night with an absolute high. Thank you Soul Mystique for your fabulous contribution to our best Gala Dinner yet
Australian Institute of Management
- Their performance was excellent and exactly what we were after.
- Soul Mystique worked beautifully – just the way I had hoped. The feedback received on site about their performance could not have been better. Guests were stunned at Gavin and Lydia's quick change act and all sorts of 'conspiracy theories' were heard around the ballroom after their outstanding performance at the Gala Dinner. How they do it remains a mystery! What a pleasure to deal with artists such as Gavin and Lydia. They were professional, accommodating, down to earth, top performers and lovely people. I can't wait to have another opportunity to book them.
"Alice and Nancy were very professional and helpful and answered every question our organisation had. Even though we had a slight mishap which was out of everyone's control (Dr Michael's flight was delayed for about four hours) Nancy called me straight away to talk about alternative options and swiftly organised a partial refund for the service he was not able to provide. We were very grateful for this level of professionalism! Thanks so much!"
