“The Frankston Musical Mats audience absolutely loved Jonathon – as you would expect. His show was slick and professional and at the same time warm and inviting for our audience, who all had some laughs and some tears along the way. He was very generous with his time, spending much time after each performance in the foyer meeting and greeting and chatting. I highly recommend the show to any venue looking for a bright addition to the program.” – MERRYN TINKLER, Artistic Development and Programming, Frankston Arts Centre

“The audience feedback has been 100% positive with many saying how wonderful it was to be encouraged sing along  and others loving Jonathon’s inspirational story” – Carissa Campbell, Wagga Wagga Civic Theatre

“From start to finish, he’s (Jonathon) been an absolute joy to work with! His whole team is professional and internationally experienced, and the product you get in terms of the quality of the stage work is exemplary. He has one of the warmest and rarest stage presence I’ve seen in a while. Jonathon does it flawlessly! I highly recommend it.” – Damien Cassidy, Redlands Performing Arts Centre
