Sudhir Shetty - Owner Manly Deck Bar and Restaurant
To whom so ever it may concern,
This email confirms that Paisley road Trio/
band (now) have been playing live music at Manly deck and bar for the last 2 years.
Joanne Edwards is an amazing singer followed by her band members who compliment her songs with equally excellent guitar, drums and bass guitar.
song selections from Paisley Road are perfect for our venue. They start off with easy listening dinner style music for the first couple of sets and then they ramp it up and get the crowd involved, dancing singing along and creating a great fun atmosphere.
In the past 4 years Manly deck has had about 1000 or more gigs and Paisley Road as a Band would be one of the top bands that play at the deck.
If you want to create a good vibe or have a good time for your wedding or venue I would
not hesitate to recommend Paisley Road.
I can still remember a couple of situations where they have raised above and shown this band has a big heart and huge ethics.
As much as Joanne loves to play and takes her music very seriously
as every professional muso would do, we had a request from one of the customer who was dying of cancer and wanted to see her god daughter play at the deck for one last time, Joanne happily offered 30 minutes of her gig slot to accommodate this request. They
even offered the back ground music to suit this request.
I also do remember one other night when the place was packed and people were dancing and having fun, and the band after playing for 4 hours were totally exhausted but the crowd wanted more.
I could see the members wanted to finish but were not there just to leave the crowd hanging. I quickly ran over and asked if they could do an extra 30 minutes to keep the crowd happy. Like any venue owners dream band , Team Paisley Road went on for another
30 minutes .. This is dedication and appreciation to the venue you don’t see a lot from many other bands.
So all in all Paisley Road is a great band, not just to hear but also to work with. Because it doesn't matter how good a band is if
the attitude is not suitable. But here we have a combination of great music, amazing people who make up the band, extremely professional, Not once late, not once a poor or substandard performance and always most importantly great respect for all the staff
and good relations.
Let me put it this way, they have such a great impression on our chefs that, he cooks them an entree or meals even after the kitchen is closed . We wish them the very best because they are the Best.
