Client Comments for The Calibre Cats
- We recently used The Calibre Cats at our State Conference Gala Awards Dinner. We had a 1920s theme and The Calibre Cats suited us perfectly. They were super easy to deal with from initial enquiry all the way through to post-event follow-up. The band have a great style and a great laid-back, fun attitude. Bridget's voice is like smooth warm chocolate, soft in the right parts and full of oomph in others. Sean has a superb deep voice that plays off Bridget's and creates a great full sound - a delight to listen to. The Calibre Cats are supurb value for money for what they deliver. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or use the band again in future! What a fun night!
Strata Community Australia
- The Calibre Cats performed at our staff Christmas party and blew us away! They were interactive, easy to deal with and their intoxicating sound had everyone on the dance floor. When planning my father's 50th around the corner, I knew I had to have The Cats as entertainment. Having left such a great impression, we based the party's theme, 20s-50s evolution of swing, around having the Cats perform for us. To this day his friends still thank him for such a great party. I will now actively recommend the Calibre Cats to any friend or colleague looking for entertainment that will make their night the one to talk about! Thank you to Dollface and the guys for igniting my passion for swing music, I'm looking forward to the next excuse to have you perform for us.
- Amazing! The Calibre Cats were fantastic - from the first set to the last, the dance floor was full. You helped make our 1920s-themed night such as success - we were after a swingin' good time, and definitely got it! Thank you!
- If you are looking for a night of good times, good vibes and a singer who tells it how it is and connects to your soul, book the Calibre Cats for a show that really swings.
Brisbane Jazz Club
- If you are running any kind of event, function or maybe even a wedding I would and do recommend The Calibre Cats. An all together, refined, highly professional band, if you can get your hands on their CD 'Live at The Tivoli Theatre' I recommend you do. People always ask me when I'm working at these gigs 'Do they sound as good on their CD?' The answer is: 'Yes, they do.'

"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!"
