"One of the best big bands in the world" - Matt Bailey Finemusic 102.5fm Sydney.
"I just love the fact that every time he records a CD he always puts one latin track for me" - Saul Zavarce, Fiesta Jazz, PBS.
"Thank you for a fabulous show, so many rave reviews from the audience and you guys sounded amazing!!" - Jackie Paul - Karralyka Theatre Morning Melodies Producer.
"I engaged the DMJO with a small degree of wariness (as I typically do when working with someone new). I did my due-diligence and wanted to be 1000% sure I was booking the right talent for my event. Given my clients single only request for the party was to have a swing band (everything else was up to me to curate), the whole evening’s success hinged on the quality of the band. After multiple discussions and planning for the said occasion, I needn’t have worried for a second. They delivered!!! A fabulous music line-up! Quality musicians! They looked the part, but most importantly they sounded it. I had multiple guests approach me through the evening complimenting me on “what a fantastic band” we had. Nailed it!!!! Thank you Daryl, for your patience in answering all my questions and queries in the lead-up, but also just as importantly showing flexibility in the bands approach to stage the band to compliment to the success of the evening. Next time I need a Swing band, I needn’t think twice.”
