Who books through us?

Australia's biggest names.  Australia's best venues.

OMG how good is Matt Hetherington. He totally wowed everyone in the room. You couldn't move on the dance floor in fact it was overflowing. Matt was so chilled and obliging and gave 150%. The hip hop number went over amazingly. Everyone loved Matt and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. His band was great and worked so hard. We are extremely happy.

Some of our clients:

For all my meticulous planning and endless hours of preparation, the success of my event really came down to one decision – choosing Essential. From the beginning their friendly and mature manner meant that they were a pleasure to deal with. On the night, their amazing talent had the dance floor full from the very first song. Their interaction with the crowd and professionalism made my event the success that it was and I would have no hesitation in recommending them for future corporate or personal functions.
